Old English Inns with Rooms

old english inn with rooms

For a cosy, intimate night away, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to stay than at one of our old English inns with rooms. Unlike the traditional public house, inns were simple watering holes, but with rooms. So, not much has changed there then – except now those humble inns have turned into stylish escapes where you don’t just stop over for the night, you seek them out for a luxury experience you’ll never forget.

If you’re staying in an old English inn, expect your room to be brimming with quirky antiques, stylish four poster beds, wood burners and perhaps a claw foot bath. Basically, prepare to be wowed. These inns with rooms are charming, full of character and rich with history. And just like when they were a stop-off on the packhorse trail, you’ll still be greeted by friendly, charismatic owners.

Enter traditional inns and you may find sloping floors, inglenook fireplaces and a dizzying selection of local lagers, ales and bitters – maybe even a resident ghost or two. But you’ll also discover all manner of modern comforts you’d expect from a boutique hotel, and some seriously fabulous food. Today, organic fare, and local and seasonal produce make an appearance in traditional pubs. Amidst the creaking corridors and ancient wooden beams, you’ll be treated to a heavenly gastro experience.

Traditional Pubs

Luckily for us, traditional pubs are set in the most glorious locations – another reason to make a weekend of it. Venture out into the national parks of the Peak District, the lakes of Cumbria or the cultural venues in Manchester. Basically, take your pick of many stunning regions in the UK and we’ll help you find an old English pub that’s had a stylish makeover, yet retained its original character.

There are many reasons to visit old English inns with rooms, not least because they are a part of our history, but they have also seriously upped their game. Making the most of their unique buildings, pub owners have sensitively restored them into luxurious accommodation, and triumphed. Located in some of the UK’s most desired locations, it’s time to make sure these charming pubs are on your travel radar.
