Enjoy the English countryside

The best thing about the English countryside is its variety. From seaside sensations and action-packed outdoor activities, to bleating lambs and quiet walks. Whether you’re bringing your dog, your family, or are simply looking to explore on your own, there’s something for everyone.


Where to go in the countryside

Choosing where to escape to can be difficult. You want somewhere that holds onto its rural beauty while remaining close enough to civilisation that you don’t lose out on convenience. 

For that, we’d recommend Cheshire, Essex, North Yorkshire and Surrey. These counties personify both the natural and man-made beauty found across the UK. So if you’re wondering where to go in the countryside, you don’t have to look much further.


What to look for in a countryside hotel

The best country pub hotels should also have the best facilities. They should capture a warm and cosy feel while providing a menu full of delicious pub food and drink that complements the atmosphere. Then, when you’re ready to settle in for the evening, you should find solace upstairs in a comfortable bed and soft fluffy pillows that let sleep embrace you.

At Chef & Brewer country pub hotels, you’ll find all of this as well as beer gardens with scenic views, access to countryside walks and historic architecture that turns the place you’re staying into a highlight of your trip.

Some of our best countryside hotels

Our country pub hotels are dotted across the UK in spots that allow you to hop through sightseeing destinations as you please. They act as a rest stop for you at the end of a long day exploring the local countryside.

The De Trafford Arms, Alderley Edge

Built over 200 years ago, the De Trafford Arms is located on the historic high street of Alderley Edge. Rub shoulders with celebrities, footballers and other high society types as you indulge in food, drink and retail therapy. Here, you’ll find stunning countryside walks through nature as well as history in the very walls you’ll stay within.

The Riverside, Branston

Perched on the bank of the River Trent in Branston, the Riverside stands as a stalwart safe haven for travellers and locals alike. Unlike any other, our pub puts nature at your fingertips with our own private fishing and mooring island within the grounds of the hotel. And when you leave the grounds for adventure, simply follow the river for unparalleled hikes and matching views.

The Kings Head, Masham

In the scenic market town of Masham, you’ll find the Kings Head hotel. Here, in this 18th-century building, you’ll be able to jump between prominent landmarks. Like the nearby Yorkshire Dales National Park and the historic Black Sheep Brewery, which you can take a tour of. Or, take a short trip to Thirsk Museum or Racecourse to learn more about the area.

The Wheatsheaf Hotel, Virginia Water

Right outside the looming beauty of Windsor Great Park, you’ll find the 18th-century Wheatsheaf Hotel. Between the woods and Virginia Water Lake, this country pub hotel has all the amenities you could want while staying in Surrey. And on top of the easy access to such beautiful natural spaces, there are plenty of other cultural highlights to visit too. These include Windsor Castle with its stunning grounds, as well as the all-ages treat of Legoland.

The Victoria, Menai Bridge

If you’re heading to Wales, book a room at the Victoria overlooking the gorgeous Menai Strait in Anglesey. From here you can make your way to Snowdonia and check out Anglesey’s coastal path for stunning views, or take in some culture at the famous Llanberis Lake Railway and Beaumaris Castle. Once you’ve finished exploring, a cosy room and bed awaits at the hotel.
