New England's Boutique Hotels & Inns (Self-drive)

15 NIGHTS FROM £5,725 per person

Famous for its ‘fall foliage’ season, when the turning leaves blanket the landscape in spectacular shades of red, orange and gold, New England is a spectacular destination to visit at any time of the year. Historic points of interest, charming whitewashed villages and short driving distances make it ideally suited for a self-drive holiday but do note that our pricing excludes car rental, to allow you to choose the vehicle that best suits your needs. We’ve hand-picked a carefully curated selection of some of the region’s finest boutique hotels and guesthouses too, each one promising a haven of warm hospitality and fine dining.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS expand_more

Explore the historic sites and attractions along Boston’s well-marked ‘Freedom Trail’.

Discover picture-perfect villages set amidst classic New England scenery – gorgeous at any time of the year, most notably during ‘fall foliage’ season.

Enjoy the finest seafood in maritime destinations such as Kennebunkport and Newport, Rhode Island.

Stay in our pick of some New England’s finest boutique inns and guesthouses, each with its own historic charm and refined take on modern hospitality.

Authentic Experience

Home to Boston’s close-knit Italian immigrant community, ‘Little Italy’ (more often known to locals simply as ‘North End’) is a tightly-packed district of narrow streets hiding almost a hundred of the best restaurants and pizzerias you’ll find anywhere in America. Bakeries here are piled high with cannoli, tiramisu and irresistible Italian pastries.

TOUR DETAILS

    DAY 1-4 DETAILS ACCOMMODATION

    Known as one of the USA’s most charming cities, Boston offers world-class museums and colleges (Harvard is just across the river in the suburb of Cambridge) and no end of historic sites along the ‘Freedom Trail’. It’s a city made for walking and cycling, with parks, rivers and harbourfront trails all waiting to be explored. It’s also a city of intriguing neighbourhoods, from the cobbled streets of Beacon Hill, the boutique shops of Newbury Street or the grand buildings lining the perimeter of Boston Common.

    TRANSFERS

    Fly to Boston’s Logan Airport, which is located conveniently close to Downtown, and take a short transfer (15 minutes) to your central hotel.

    • Summary: Beaux Arts building with stylish Art Deco interiors
    • Feature: Rooftop garden with stunning views
    • Rooms: 63 rooms & suites
    • Location: Boston, United States of America
    • Star rating: AAA Four Diamond
    DAY 5-7 DETAILS ACCOMMODATION

    Time to bid a fond farewell to Boston and hit the road for the start of your New England adventure. It’s a short drive today, affording plenty of time to enjoy a few stops along the way. Some of our recommended detours include Salem, site of the infamous ‘witch trials’ in the late 17th Century, the fishing port of Gloucester or the historic coastal community of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. On days 6 & 7, discover the seaside charm of popular Kennebunkport, famous as the summer home of former president George HW Bush.

    TRANSFERS

    Collect your chosen rental car on departure from Boston on the morning of Day 5, and head north to Kennebunkport (approx. 85 miles).

    White Barn Inn & Spa
    • Summary: : Warm hospitality and uncompromising attention to detail – a local landmark.
    • Feature: Award-winning dining at the White Barn Restaurant.
    • Rooms: 27 meticulously-restored rooms, suites and waterfront cottages.
    DAY 8-10 DETAILS ACCOMMODATION

    Head inland to meander through the rolling hills and lakes of southern New Hampshire, before crossing into the more rugged state of Vermont to the quintessentially New England village of Woodstock, complete with its village green, whitewashed churches and covered bridge. Browse the cute independent stores on Central Street or use it as a base for impossibly scenic drives in the ‘Green Mountains’ (from which the state of Vermont takes its name). Just an hour’s drive north, the tiny state capital of Montpelier is well worth a visit.

    TRANSFERS

    Drive from Kennebunkport to Woodstock on Day 8 (approx. 140 miles).

    Woodstock Inn & Resort
    • Summary: Woodstock, Vermont, United States of America

    DAY 11-12 DETAILS ACCOMMODATION

    Historic Rutland could be your first stop on Day 11, as you drive south towards Connecticut. Those with a keen interest in the arts might enjoy a visit to the Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester, or a chance to admire the extensive collection of Norman Rockwell’s paintings and illustrations at his eponymous museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Arrive into Connecticut for a relaxing two-night stay at an exquisite country retreat set in 58 acres of grounds.

    DAY 13-15 DETAILS ACCOMMODATION

    It’s only a short drive across Connecticut into Rhode Island, America’s smallest state, so perhaps take the scenic route along the coast to the 17th Century seafaring town of Mystic, home to two of Connecticut’s most-visited attractions, the Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium. The restaurants lining Newport’s yacht-filled harbour are the place to enjoy clam chowder or a classic New England lobster bake, and the resort is famous for its elaborate Gilded Age mansions, once the summer homes of the rich and famous.

    TRANSFERS

    Drive along the coastline of Connecticut and across the twin bridges across Naragansett Bay into Newport, Rhode Island (approx. 140 miles).
