In an uncertain economic climate many pubs look for ways to diversify, moving towards combining a charming relaxed atmosphere with high-quality food and bed and breakfast.
Staying at a Great Country Pub offers a peaceful retreat in picture-postcard surroundings, the opportunity to get out and about to explore the English countryside and a host that will make you feel right at home.
Add to that talented chefs that believe in sourcing the best local produce, real ales and delightful spotlessly clean guest accommodation at an affordable price, and you have the perfect package for a romantic getaway or active weekend.
After a strenuous day of sightseeing, look forward to a satisfying meal prior to settling down with a nightcap in front of a blazing fire, or outside under the stars on a balmy summer’s evening, before retiring to a cosy bedroom. Wake the next morning to a hearty English breakfast to set you up for the day ahead.
Some Great Country Pubs choose to blend contemporary style with period features, while others still cling to their heritage. Whether you prefer old-world charm or chic modern, a stylish suite or a cosy room with simple furnishings, search 'Where to Stay' for something to suit all tastes.
Note: Book in advance at weekends or during peak times as pubs often only have only a few bedrooms. Breakfast is generally included in the price but check when you book.
