Not sure where to choose for your holiday?
Visit the Home Counties Tourist Information pages for info on all the different areas on iknow-homecounties.
The Home Counties, which border London, offer some fantastic hotels in town and countryside locations. Hotels often have a range of facilities, so to make your stay extra special, look for hotels in Windsor with swimming pools or luxury hotels in Essex with entertainment. Essex has some top class hotels, including some lovely hotels in Essex for weddings.
If you want to stay somewhere a bit different, have a look at some of the cottages in Surrey or the wonderful range of self catering accommodation in St Albans. There are lots of alternatives to hotels, so for a new experience book a Milton Keynes B&B for the weekend for a unique and friendly place to stay.
Whilst the Home Counties are a lot more relaxed than nearby London, you can still find it tricky to park in the town centre of some towns. Book Windsor hotels with parking included or town centre hotels in Reading with parking nearby and you won't need to faff around when you get there. When going on holiday abroad, bear in mind that hotels near Gatwick Airport with parking could be cheaper than airport car parks.
