Looking for a new kind of adventurous excursion this summer? We have the perfect suggestion for you: Immerse yourself in timeless luxury by hiring a classic car and going on a tour of England's most alluring country house hotels. Luxury travel expert Meg Nolan van Reesema provides the perfect guide to the best destinations in her great new book, England's Hideaways: Discovering Enchanting Rooms, Stately Manor Houses and Country Cottages from Rizzoli.

As for the car, we recommend Vanilla Classics' selection of stylish motors, including a Jaguar E-Type (above), a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and a Triumph Stag. The E-Type is the preferred choice as the iconic model celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

Nolan van Reesema features more than 30 exclusive getaways in the lavish volume, from London to the Lake District. Highlights include Oxfordshire's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, with its Michelin-starred cuisine and rooms featuring luscious silk fabrics, mullioned windows, and four-poster beds; the stately 17th century Hartwell House outside London; the Hambleton Hall Hotel, originally built as a brewery magnate's fox-hunting lodge and renowned for its fine dining; and the Victorian Augill Castle with its soaring stone turrets and commanding view of the lush, rolling Cumbrian countryside.
