Here are some top choices but for more cosy, candlelit pubs with rooms, peruse our whole collection here
Expect high standards at this handsome 17th-century country inn. Inventive Michelin Star menus are built around top-notch Yorkshire produce – splash out at the chef’s table or curl up by one of the roaring fires, with a plate of Yorkshire rarebit, then retire to one of the gorgeous rooms – they’re the last word in stylish glamour.
Transformed into a civilised country inn, the stylish and welcoming Greyhound backs onto the River Test in Stockbridge, England’s fly-fishing capital. Expect warm, sophisticated décor, cosy bedrooms, intimate candlelit dining rooms, and some innovative cooking.
A thatched culinary oasis with a Michelin Star set deep in the Wiltshire countryside. The five stunning rooms along the lane are the icing on the cake at this rural hideaway – dine well and wake up to serene views across the crystal clear infant River Avon and lush water meadows. Special indeed.
Be wowed by the eclectic décor, the quirky bedrooms and the hearty seasonal food at this 16th-century bolthole in a thriving Sussex village. Outback in a whimsical, flower-festooned garden are three truly unique shingle-clad lodges including the circular Love Nest, perfect for that special romantic night away.
This 16th century pub with its sleek, ultra-modern makeover is very much an adults hideaway – timbered Gillman’s Cottage houses six luxurious rooms – expect funky mood lighting, under floor heating, velvety soft furnishings, king-size beds, bespoke mini Riva Bars and super smart tiled bathrooms with oval tubs and vast walk-in monsoon showers. Juniper, Honeysuckle and Cassia boasting personal steam rooms – you won’t want to leave!
Expect the unexpected – a chic, hunting lodge-style inn set within a stunning 1,000 acre country estate where deer roam freely past the inn. The view is best enjoyed from the comfort of the warmly furnished bar and dining rooms where massive fireplaces add to the relaxed and informal vibe. The seriously smart new courtyard bedrooms have their own sitting areas and big bathrooms with tubs and walk in showers.
An idyllic country pub in the heart of a sleepy Somerset village with a cosy, civilised, relaxed vibe, and top notch food. Stay over in one of the five elegant, country-style bedrooms upstairs and you won’t want to leave – do nothing or explore the excellent walking and nearby Jurassic Coast.
Just a brisk stroll from one of Northumberland’s finest beaches at Low Newton-by-the-Sea, and a short drive from several stunning coastal castles, this modest, unassuming pub takes some beating as a weekend base for walking and unwinding and exploring the county’s wild coastline. Looks can be deceiving, however, so step inside and expect to be wowed by the bold, bohemian-style interior – the rooms do not disappoint!
You can only be impressed by this cosy, creeper-covered Cotswold inn with 14 glamorous bedrooms. Posh bathrooms feature roll-top baths or trendy modern showers and all are stocked with handmade toiletries. The Wheatsheaf is the kind of place you can squirrel yourself away and spend all weekend – there’s even a treatment room on-site if you really want to be pampered, and room service during restaurant hours.
A peaceful retreat close to Alderley Edge (walking) and Manchester, this boutique bistro-style inn has been revamped in rustic French style. Expect a totally cool & relaxed vibe, a Mediterranean inspired menu and six very special bedrooms – book one with an open fire for a very cosy time or take advantage of the special deal with the Cheshire Health Club & Spa.
