Pride of Britain Hotels is delighted to announce that Sopwell House in Hertfordshire has joined its luxury collection of independently-owned UK hotels.

Set in 12 acres of grounds close to St Albans, Hertfordshire, the grand Georgian house is the former country residence of Lord Mountbatten. Today, it’s a wonderful retreat within easy reach of London and has been in the Bejerano family for 30 years. Host Tony Hellawell is an expert on the hotel’s history as well as St Albans itself.

Inside, the hotel’s contemporary style is an eclectic mix of vintage French fashion magazine covers and fine art animal giclée prints by artist Dan Hillier. The hotel’s 128 bedrooms and suites include sixteen gated Mews Suites, set in a lovely landscaped garden.

When I first started out travel writing, twenty years ago, I was writing a weekly round-up for The Independent. The first PR agency I ever tapped into for their clients' holiday ideas was Travel PR; they were always full of great suggestions for the column and responded quickly. Over the years, I've worked with them on many occasions and their close association with AITO has always paid dividends. Nothing has changed; some of the best story ideas I get herald from them, and their response time remains very speedy. They are a pleasure to work with.
