Treat your mother to a relaxing break away this Mothering Sunday
20 February 2019
With Valentine’s over it is time to turn one’s thoughts to Mothering Sunday and with the Easter break being so late this year, why not treat your mother to a relaxing stay away at a gorgeous country pub with rooms where she can relax and unwind whilst enjoying some great food and drink in stylish, comfortable surroundings. Here are some of our suggestions but if you can’t decide – simply give your mother the gift of choice with an Inn Places Gift Card.
A blissful country hideaway south of Bath (yet within easy reach for some retail therapy) with inventive pub food, stylish individual rooms including The Roost, a romantic garden cabin room set in a fabulous garden with rolling rural views.
Chef Mark Sargeant’s dining pub with rooms draws foodies from far and wide for the rustic-smart interior, classic pub food (with a twist), and stylishly simple rooms. Set in sleepy Ickham in the stunning Stour Valley, there is wonderful walking and it’s just 20 minutes from Canterbury.
This gorgeous village setting for Rob McGill’s historic inn is just 10 minutes drive from junction 13 of the M4. It draws a discerning crowd for good food, country-chic rooms & a lovely walled garden with its own Boules pitch.
Don’t miss this new-wave coaching inn for its bold, eye-catching refurbishment, modern British cooking & cool country-style rooms. Set overlooking Fairford’s attractive Market Square it is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds, and also has fishing rights to a 1.25 mile stretch of the River Coln.
This pub-restaurant with rooms in deepest Shropshire offers innovative seasonal food from a talented young chef and 7 comfortable bedrooms making it a cracking base from which to explore this fascinating area – Powis Castle, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are close, and superb walking on the Long Mynd and the Shropshire Way are just 10 minutes from the front door.
The sleepy village setting beneath rolling downland and the Ridgeway Path makes the Star Inn a peaceful place to get away from it all with some excellent walking and cycling right on the doorstep. There’s a cool, contemporary feel to the place, innovative food and smart rooms to be found in a restored barn.
In the lovely Vale of Belvoir, the Chequers Inn is a pretty old pub with friendly service, a seasonal menu and sweet, comfortable bedrooms. The Loft Suite is the plum choice with further doubles in the converted stables next door.
Good Asian-inspired food sits alongside pub classics at this country rustic village pub successfully rescued by the local farming fraternity in 2006. Peacefully tucked away from the North Norfolk coastal throng, there are 6 snug and cosy rooms above the pub and three larger contemporary garden rooms.
Overlooking the Market Square in the small, bustling town of Kirkby Lonsdale in the pretty Lune Valley, the Royal thrives as a community hub and as an elegant place to stay. Opulent bedrooms and a crowd-pleasing menu make it a good base for exploring both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
This unassuming 300-year-old inn stands on the hill of ‘grand Old Duke of York’ fame in the heart of beautiful Crayke, and affords stunning views across the Vale of York. Within easy reach of York, Castle Howard and the North York Moors, this civilised retreat is a favoured local dining destination and draws foodies from afar for top-notch pub food and very comfortable rooms.
