Heritage Rated Hotels and other Historic accommodation Historic accommodation - heritage rated
We love British heritage and history. If your idea of fine accommodation is an historic medieval coaching inn or an elegant country house hotel, you'll like our new Heritage Rating system for accommodation. We've poured over thousands of bed and breakfasts, hotels, inns, and guest houses in our directory and noted those accommodation properties that offer more than just a room - they offer a taste of history! If you love British heritage, look for Heritage Rated Accommodation, Heritage Rated Accommodation, or Heritage Rated Accommodation. Historic accommodation properties, those rated highly on a Heritage Rating, are also highlighted in yellow and listed first under each location. Learn more about Heritage Ratings for historic properties.
