Step into your favourite book at one of these UK literary locations

The written word is a powerful thing.

Books in particular have the power to transport us to another time and place, inviting us into another world and offering a delicious form of escapism.

From childhood reads that held our literary hands into adolescence, tear-jerking romances that echoed our real-life relationships and classics that informed our education: nothing can beat a good book.

And at stylist.co.uk there’s little we love more than the excuse to disappear into the pages of a well-written novel, apart from perhaps, the opportunity to take a trip away at the same time.

If like us, the idea of exploring the romantically-depicted settings of some of your favourite books stirs excitement in your inner book-worm, then you’re in for a treat.

Hotels.com has sought to find the UK’s best literary getaways, with a list of luxury hotels that let you imagine the inspirations behind some of the world’s most loved stories.

 From a hotel nestled by the woodland that inspired Winnie the Pooh, to a regular haunt of Jane Austen’s, Tylney Hall in Hampshire, we reckon you’ll be reliving some of your favourite scenes in no-time.
