All the places we've chosen are special, but in lots of different ways, often reflecting the tastes and personalities of the people who run them. We have a wider range of **** hotels than ever before, many offering spas and wellness centres, secluded gardens, gyms and tennis.

Fit for a King or Queen

At Headwater, we pride ourselves on working with hoteliers who take a genuine interest in their guests and who go that extra mile to make their visitors feel special. So, you might find yourself staying in a small family-run hotel, where it's like a 'home from home', a beautifully restored historic château, a luxury hotel with spa or in a magnificently converted convent with wonderful cloisters and hidden courtyards.

Some of the places we feature are way off-the-beaten-track in incredibly pretty mountain villages where life has hardly changed over the centuries; others are in the heart of the most ornate historic centres. Many reflect the tastes and, at times quirky styles, of their owners, and all share a desire to provide "service plus" at every point of your stay.

We provide full details for each of the hotels you stay at during your holiday with us. Simply follow the "Your accommodation" link on the individual holiday pages to find out more.

Find your perfect stay


Want to enjoy a traditional Headwater holiday but with a little more privacy? Would you prefer the flexibility to do as much or as little as you wish? Our 'Villas & Cottages by Headwater' collection could be just what you're looking for.

Each property provides the perfect mix of privacy and shared space, just like a family home. After a day’s activities you can return to your villa or cottage and come together to share your experiences of the day’s adventures, and relax.

When it comes to meal-times, each property has a fully-equipped kitchen so you can easily cater for yourselves. And if you fancy heading out for dinner, all the properties are situated close to local restaurants too!

You’ll have access to a range of itineraries, for walking and/or cycling, giving you a choice of activities for you and your family or friends. You’re free to choose how much or how little you do each day.
