The exclusive five-star trip around the British Isles – which begins at £500,000 – takes six weeks to give families from Britain and as far afield as the US, Middle East, Russia, Australia and China, the opportunity to make the most of the summer months. Throughout the tour, guests can explore the country in luxury private residences from Scotland to Cornwall and indulge in bespoke concierge services to enjoy a wide variety of memorable activities and experiences.

“It will be billed as the ultimate tour of the UK and is a million miles away from the bucket and spade brigade and beach huts, but will nevertheless cater for an inclusive family experience, albeit at the very top of the scale of leisure breaks,” explained Rebecca Mayes, Managing Director of Elysian Estates.

The trip begins by taking a private jet to Aldourie Castle, a stunning venue set on the banks of Loch Ness in over 500 acres, giving guests the opulence, fairytale grandeur and glamour expected from a Highland castle. The castle will play host to water and land-based activities, visits from clothing stores for shooting and participating in your very own Highland Games.

Guests then travel south of the border in a private car of your choice – including Rolls Royce or Aston Martin – moving from the Lake District to Yorkshire, the Midlands to the Cotswolds, the Home Counties to London and finally staying at a number of stunning manors and stately homes in the West Country.

Outdoor pursuits available during the trip include clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, gliding, hot air ballooning and white water rafting, in addition to relaxing spa experiences, culinary master classes and banquets from Michelin starred chefs. Guests can also travel in style with a variety of transportation methods, such as luxury chauffer-driven vehicles and helicopter transfers.
“Many of our customers are based overseas and so want to experience as much of the UK in a short space of time. We’ve created this five-star package based on the feedback we’ve received from guests and also to showcase what we believe is the best of Britain,” explained Rebecca. “We’ve incredibly fortunate to have so much stunning properties, landscapes and experiences right on our doorstep, so whether you’re from overseas or a UK resident, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and remember for the rest of their lives.”
