Tudor Farmhouse, Gloucestershire
In the ancient and beautiful Forset of Dean, Clearwell is the perfect escape route. Head here for a total relax, with wonderful countryside to explore on your doorstep plus the fabulous restaurant and superb rooms. The gardens are lovely too.
Favourite dish: we love the concept of the 20 mile menu, where everything’s sourced within that radius, including a lovely Stone bass with herb and nut crust. Check out the sample dinner menu here
The Punchbowl Inn, Cumbria
An award-winning country inn with rooms in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside with amazing walks surrounding the village of Crosthwaite. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, what better way to finish the day than heading downstairs to the incredibly welcoming traditional bar and restaurant?
Favourite dish: Cumbrian fillet steak and braised cheek – Check out their sample menu here
Artist Residence Oxfordshire
Part of the Artist Residence group of hotels with their signature design-led interiors, this thatched pub with rooms is set in a picturesque village, surrounded by rolling countryside. The interiors are chic and stylish – copper baths and huge beds await you after a long week in the office, as does Mr. Hanbury’s Mason Arms, the attached pub, which serves a great menu of traditional British cuisine.
Favourite dish: Beer battered haddock, bashed peas and chips – check out their sample menu here
The Kingham Arms, Cotswolds
This is a truly lovely place to stay and to eat. In a ridiculously lovely village in The Cotswolds there’s a traditional bar and restaurant areas downstairs – with an open fire for winter warming – and a selection of cottage style, bright and newly renovated bedrooms upstairs. There’s an additional two dog-friendly bedrooms in the annex. Traditional. Quality. Welcoming.
Favourite dish: Pan Roast Stone Bass, Tomato Essence Risotto, Confit Cherry Tomato served with a Herb Oil – check out their sample menu here
The Black Bull, Yorkshire
The Yorkshire Dales are just incredibly beautifully, surrounded by Dales and Lakes and full of wide open spaces. Sedbergh sits in the midst of the Dales and is home to this much talked about culinary delight. The dining room is a stunning setting in which to partake of some truly exceptional dishes and an “.. impressive, well-researched wine list” according to The Telegraph.
Favourite dish: Lakeland Venison Wellington with a Pickled Walnut Ketchup. Check out their sample menu here
