Bridgerton has been an international hit on Netflix, set during the Regency period, the show is flamboyant and extravagant, in both costumes and sets.
The unique love story and modern twists such as diverse casting and “old” takes on new music have fans hooked on the show, but they’ve also fallen head over heels for the luxury residences of the Bridgerton characters – stunning homes set in the 1800s with a true royal presence that have gorgeous surroundings and interiors that are simply jaw-dropping.
Holiday home insurer Schofields have rounded up a selection of UK properties where you can staycation in Bridgerton style over the bank holiday weekend, including modern guest rooms in country manors to real-life castles so you can live like Daphne and Simon for a night – although you should probably bear in mind that there are other members of the public around too *wink*!
So, why not book one of these incredible hotels for a staycation and experience the sparkle of the Regency era?
1. Hambleton Hall – from £340/night
Hambleton Hall, located in Rutland in the East Midlands, makes the perfect comparison to the Bridgerton’s family home and as the Pride of Britain’s Hotel of the Year for 2016 with gorgeous interiors and regal rooms made to impress, you’ll certainly get your Bridgerton fix staying here.
2. The Grove – from £400/night
The Grove is an 18th-century mansion that is available for bookings as a hotel located in Hertfordshire, and certainly makes a worthy rival for the Featherington’s flamboyant interiors. The recently redecorated Lounges have kept original features such as their fireplaces, architraves and cornices, but the added vibrant upholstery and hand-painted wall coverings will make you feel as if you’ve stepped straight into Penelope’s drawing room.
3. Luton Hoo – from £216/night
The Luton Hoo is a stunning hotel located in Bedfordshire where it is advertised that you can stay in ‘glorious splendour’. Like Wilton House, a filming location used throughout the series, this hotel has royal roots, known for being the location of the Queen and Prince Philip’s honeymoon. If your other half isn’t a Bridgerton fan, this property might still win them over as a filming location for movies such as James Bond – Never Say Never Again and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
4. Cliveden House – from £445/night
Clyvedon Castle, the location of Daphne and Simon’s honeymoon is certainly iconic now, and what could give the utterly grand Castle Howard and its famous grounds a run for its money?
Cliveden House, built on the banks of the Thames with a similarly stunning facade, certainly does that, but it also has the added benefits of being open to the public to book for overnight stays.
5. Bowood House – from £270/night
The imposing stone facade of Lady Danbury’s house’s exterior is portrayed by the Holburne Museum in Bath, but Bowood House has a similarly stunning frontage as well as private walled gardens, terraced gardens (perfect for a chaperoned rendez-vous between dances!) and wooded grounds. Once home to the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne, this hotel, spa and golf resort is certainly fit for the noblemen and women of Bridgerton.
6. Highfield Park – from £87/night
Highfield Park is certainly a home fit for a Duke, and with 86 modern guest rooms available to book in this elegant 17th-century country house, you too can live like royalty – for a night or two. You can even say “I do” at this independent hotel, whether in an outdoor ceremony in the sprawling grounds or an exquisite indoor reception.
7. Ballroom – Leigh Court – wedding packages from £60pp
If you’re looking to get your groove on just like in the show with Bridgerton’s ballroom scenes, you can experience the real thing at Leigh Court. This location was actually used in several of Bridgerton’s ballroom scenes, including Daphne’s striking entrance before she dances with Prince Friederich. While you technically can’t stay here, you can hire this room for weddings, meaning you can make your own Regency style entrance on your big day.
8. Amberley Castle – from £575/night
In Bridgerton, Queen Charlotte splits her time between Buckingham House (now Palace) and St. James Palace. Amberley Castle certainly delivers on the royal appearance with beautiful interiors and country hilltop views. Located in Sussex, this magnificent hotel offers majestic hotel rooms so you can live like a Queen, or simply just swan like a debutante around its halls.
