10 Luxurious UK Hotels That You Can Travel To By Helicopter

The stunning Cliveden House.

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or – after the stresses of the past year or so – ‘just because’, a luxurious break is the perfect indulgent treat. Atlas Helicopters can ensure that you not only arrive in style but that the adventure begins before you even arrive at your destination. And less time stuck in traffic means more time to enjoy yourself. We can even arrange your whole staycation for you, tailored just for you and your guest(s). Here are 10 luxurious UK hotels that you can travel to by helicopter:

Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa, Lake District

Not many hotels can boast their own red pandas and vultures – but Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa is also home to Lake District Wildlife Park.

Set in 400 acres of deer park and woodland and bordered by Bassenthwaite Lake, the dramatic Skiddaw Mountain and Lake District Fells are not far away.

The luxurious spa will help you wind down after all the outdoor attractions.

Bovey Castle, Dartmoor, Devon

Stunning Bovey Castle was first opened as a hotel and golf resort in 1930 by Great Western Railways.

Standing within 275 acres of beautiful countryside in Devon’s Dartmoor National Park, you can choose to stay in the hotel itself, or in one of the 22 discrete country lodges tucked away around the grounds. 

Golfers can enjoy the award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed for Bovey Castle by J F Abercromby.

Chewton Glen, New Forest, Hampshire

Chewton Glen is a quintessentially English, privately-owned, luxury country house hotel and spa on the fringe of the New Forest in Hampshire.

With some of England’s most stunning countryside on the doorstep, and the sea just moments away, Chewton Glen is an idyllic escape.

And if you’re looking for a luxurious stay with a twist, try one of their 14 sprawling treehouses.

Cliveden House, Berkshire

You may recognise Cliveden House from the Channel 4 series A Very British Country House.

The privately-owned 5-star hotel is set within 376 acres of National Trust grounds, just waiting to be explored.

Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour for the elite.

Claridges, London

Five-star luxury in the heart of London’s Mayfair, Claridges is an iconic base from which to explore the capital.

Built in the 1800s, it was during the 1920s that Claridge’s became an English institution and the place to be seen for movie stars, statesmen and fashion designers alike.

The hotel still honours art deco glamour, and prides itself on treating you like an old friend, even if it’s your first visit.

Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club, Edinburgh, Scotland

A perfect stay-cation for golf-lovers, Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club is a stone’s-throw from Edinburgh’s culture, shopping and nightlife.

Mary, Queen of Scots is said to have been a visitor to Dalmahoy and the present house was built in the 1720s.  Today, it’s a luxurious blend of a traditional manor house and contemporary facilities – including a leisure club with indoor pool – set in 1,000 acres of stunning parkland.

Only seven miles from the city, the hotel boasts two 18-hole golf courses and hosted the Scottish Seniors Open and Solheim cup in previous years.

Lough Eske Castle, Donegal, Northern Ireland

Lough Eske Castle’s list of awards is nearly as long as its history: there has been a castle there since the 14th Century.

This beautiful hotel has castle grandeur alongside contemporary décor, and its spa is amongst the best in Northern Ireland.

Donegal itself was named Coolest Place on the Planet by Lonely Planet in 2017 and has lots to see and do.  You can even try surfing in the Atlantic or see if you can spot a golden eagle.

Nailcote Hall Hotel, Golf and Country Club, Warwickshire

Nailcote Hall, a small English stately home, was built in 1640 and survived damage from Cromwell’s troops in the English Civil War.  Over the centuries the property has been restored and altered, and is now an elegant spa hotel, with a fine dining restaurant and Par 3 Golf Course. 

It’s the perfect stay for history buffs, with Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Coventry Cathedral and the National Motorcycle Museum all nearby.

Palé Hall, Snowdonia National Park, Wales

Palé Hall is the perfect destination for a quiet retreat, comfort and culinary indulgence. 

Nestled in the Dee valley, near Snowdonia National Park, this grand 5-star Victorian mansion has an idyllic woodland garden rolling down to the banks of the river. 

If you want to get out and explore the stunning surroundings, the hotel provides luxury guided tours, as well as fishing experiences.

The Torridon, Scottish Highlands, Ross-shire

Set in the breath-taking Scottish Highlands by a loch, The Torridon has been described as “where glamour and homeliness blend in one of the world’s greatest wildernesses”.

It’s the perfect stay for outdoor pursuits.  The hotel runs a range of activities from coasteering and sea kayaking, to guided bike rides and gorge scrambling.

When all of that has given you an appetite, you can enjoy The Torridon’s restaurants, with an emphasis on locally-sourced dishes.
