New Historic Houses vacations with a touch of luxury

Do you love sneaking a peek at the interiors of other people’s homes? Are you enchanted by buildings with magnificent architecture? Do stories of the past capture your imagination? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we think you might enjoy our four new Historic Houses holidays, which all come with a brand-new added perk – luxury coach travel.

Let’s start with the journey. What better way to travel on vacation than in luxury? Well, for these new Historic Houses trips, we will transport you aboard our new luxury coaches. What’s a luxury coach? Allow us to explain. When you book a place on one of these new Historic Houses vacations, your return travel will be aboard a new fleet of high-class coaches. They feature aircraft-style seats with three-point seatbelts and arm rests, illuminated tables, air-conditioning as well as heating throughout, Sky TV, a kitchen area complete with a refrigerator, curtains and privacy glass, and also air suspension to make your journey all the more comfortable.

Ok, now let’s talk Historic Houses.


From Drum Castle with its 700-year history to the elaborate Z-planned Fraser Castle, and from the ghost stories and folklore of Fyvie Castle to Craigievar Castle – this tour shines a spotlight on the stories behind the walls. Architecture, ancient tales and awe-inspiring landscapes await discovery.

Devon & Cornwall

These neighbouring counties’ broad expanse of history is reflected in the houses dotted around, from the Georgian Killerton House with its amazing collection of 18th-20th century costumes to the Elizabethan Prideaux Place, lived in by the same family since 1592.


With a special tour of Minterne House by none other than the owner himself – Lord Digby – and visits to Kingston Lacy, Thomas Hardy’s Max Gate house and Forde Abbey, this new vacation shines a spotlight on beautiful Dorset.

North Wales

Encompassing a broad sweep of Welsh history, the houses we visit on this four-day vacation range from the Jacobean Plas Teg to one of the oldest datable medieval properties in the country at Aberconwy House – and more!
