Wellington Country Park, set in Riseley in England’s rural Berkshire, has a wealth of attractions from the animal farm and miniature railway to many other child-friendly activities. Step out of the park and into your hotel by booking your stay nearby with Culture Trip.

Green spaces have become even more precious since the pandemic, and Wellington Country Park has 350 acres (140ha) of greenery in which to play. Scattered around this sprawl of coniferous and deciduous forest are animal enclosures full of friendly farmyard critters, adventure playgrounds and woodland trails guarded by model dinosaurs. Stay nearby and kids can beat the rush to the swings, and get in early for other fun family days out like the ruined Roman city at Silchester.

Now from $120 per night
A huge and handsome country house, dripping with original features, Highfield Park was once the country home of former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, and the location – just 1mi (1.6km) from Wellington Country Park – is extremely convenient for easy escapes from London. Enormous rooms have an intriguing mix of period and modern trim, with English antiques juxtaposed against Nordic-style rugs, fabrics and design furniture. The food is impressive, too, with ingredients from the hotel’s own organic farm.

Now from $158 per night

Behind a dignified Georgian facade, the Wellington Arms is part of the historic Wellington Estate, named for the boot-wearing Duke who stamped his identity all over this part of Hampshire. Many come for the food – with superior pub meals created using top-notch local ingredients, served indoors or out in the pub garden – but the rooms are just as appealing, with historical elements but a smart, modern attitude, best expressed in the stylish metro tile-lined bathrooms.

Now from $184 per night
Although its pedigree dates back to at least 1700, Tylney Hall is a stately home that effortlessly recreates the 1920s, from afternoon teas on the lawn and splashes in the open-air pool to the vast bedrooms, with their artful blend of patterned fabrics, period furnishings and mood-calming paint tones. The house spills over several wings; each has its own design style, so browse a few before deciding. Add in 66 acres (27ha) of parkland, and it’s quite a package.

Hook House is a home with a history, occupied by a string of wealthy families in times past (and even, reputedly, by the odd ghost). The house was built in 1684, and the luxury king room hints back to this time, with a giant four-poster bed, floral paper and oryx antler table lamps. Most rooms are more modern, though, with a tasteful mix of antique bits and bobs and modern fabrics and throws.

    Tipping its hat to Italian Palladian architecture, Warbrook House was designed by master architect John James in 1724 and looks almost as grand today, ringed by a baffle of restored gardens, grounds and even its own canal. Rooms are plush and lush rather than fusty, with giant curving windows, velvet upholstered headboards on the beds and botanical wallpaper on feature walls. More than 120 acres (50ha) of grounds push the modern world out of sight and mind.

    Cooking facilities and outdoor space are the keys to easy stays in the country, and the studios and rooms at the Kingsley have simple guest kitchens and access to a tidy garden screened off by high hedges. The name is a nod to local writer Reverend Charles Kingsley, author of Westward Ho! and The Water Babies. With sparkling white sheets and gleaming bathrooms, it’s a quiet and calm hub within easy reach of Wellington Country Park.

    Heckfield Place

    In the country house rankings for outdoor space, Heckfield Place trumps most of the local competition with 400 acres (160ha) of gardens, woodland and its own serene lake. The grand Georgian house is equally attractive, a vision in red brick and Portland stone. Inside, rooms take the traditional country house idea and upend it, mixing Chinoiserie and antique furniture with bold paint tones, modern art and pin-straight lines. The restaurants (plural) are similarly sculptural, with bare brickwork and old oak beams in abundance, and interesting menus featuring fire-cooked foodstuffs.
