When it comes to cozy pubs you can’t beat the British countryside. Whether you’re simply looking to escape the city, or are planning your next weekend away, these sophisticated pubs offer the perfect mix of stylish relaxation and delicious fare to rival any jet-set holiday.

From trendy farmhouses, renovated townhouses and rooms literally fit for a king, these are our picks for the best pubs with rooms to whisk yourself away to on your next countryside outing.

The Bower House

A recent visit to The Bower House still has me dreaming of going back. Sitting at the centre of the especially quaint and historic district of Shipston on Stour, Bower House has made a lovingly restored home out of the beautiful Georgian building it encompasses. All five of its bespoke rooms are stylishly decorated with modern, mid-century touches with Nespresso machines, Roberts radios, retro phones, porcelain crockery and cocktail trays. The bathrooms are beautiful, complete with bath and shower and stocked with Ila organic products made in the Cotswolds.

Cozy and relaxed, with velvet accents, elegant patterns and the right amount of colour, Bower House provides a sense of modern heritage that combines both class and comfort. Relax the day away in one of their decadent claw-foot tubs equipped in every room and wind down with a cocktail before enjoying a delicious meal in the restaurant with a menu designed by Sukhjinder Aujla, who previously worked at Nobu, The Savoy and The Metropolitan in London. Based in the heart of the Cotswolds there’s plenty of culture, gardens and trails to discover and with train journeys just over an hour from London, The Bower House is a must for anyone looking to escape this winter.

The Rose Deal

The Rose Deal lives up to its 200-year history, providing chic comfort and artistic charm on the Deal seaside. Set amongst boutiques and vintage shops, its eight unique bedrooms perfectly combine luxury with bold coloured interiors that are totally insta-worthy. When it comes to dining, guests are treated to seasonal menus served with the finest local ingredients. Enjoy a meal in the cozy dining room, or opt for a table on their gorgeous patio and sip on one of their deliciously designed cocktails whilst you soak up the fresh sea breeze.

The George in Rye

Established in 1575 and playing host to three King George’s, The George in Rye is the epitome of romantic elegance and luxury. The rooms have been individually designed using a combination of antique and modern furniture, contemporary fabrics and textiles from William Morris, and Italian Frette bed linens and duvets. Bespoke massage treatments are provided in the comfort of your own room, so you can take time to fully unwind and live like royalty. Serving food all day, The George Grill offers up a modern European menu from a charcoal-grill where their chefs cook freshly caught seafood from nearby Rye Bay for a taste of true indulgence.

(Note: The Hotel was victim to a fire in July 2019 so is temporarily closed and will re-open shortly further to a re-refurbishment)

Mr. Hanbury's Mason Arms

Boutique hotel group Artists Residence, known for their eccentric bunch of fun and friendly places to eat and drink, provides an idyllic country retreat in Oxfordshire with Mr. Hanbury’s Arms. The 16th century inn has five stylish and unique bedrooms, three luxurious suites located in outbuildings and a Shepherd’s Hut perfect for a cozy stay for two.

With a Bohemian design flare, expect unique features such as high-pitched ceilings, log-burner fireplaces, eclectic artwork and touches of luxury including rainfall showers. Some rooms even feature roll top baths. On the main floor, The Mason Arms is a welcoming country pub where guests can relax and unwind in front of the fire and enjoy a sumptuous menu with food sourced from nearby farms and produce from the kitchen’s own onsite garden.

The Wheatsheaf Inn

This 17th century coaching inn showcases some of the very best the English countryside has to offer. The bedrooms at The Wheatsheaf are stylish, elegant and homely. With calming, neutral tones, printed wallpaper and industrial-style lighting for a touch of modern flare, each one of the 14 bespoke rooms provides a perfect space to unwind. It’s the small, personal touches that set the Wheatsheaf apart, including handwritten welcome notes, fluffy bathrobes and organic toiletries from Bramley, and there’s an onsite treatment room providing a host of relaxing massage treatments for guests to refresh and recharge. Simple, rustic food is served in the restaurant and, of course, the Sunday lunch is not to be missed.

Duke William

Eating and drinking well is at the heart of the Duke William. From their celebrated Sunday roasts, to their daily pub menu accompanied by beer and ale from the finest local breweries, and a diverse and eclectic wine list, your taste buds will not be disappointed with your visit to this friendly and fashionable pub. Situated just ten minutes outside the historic town of Canterbury, and located on the beautiful, rolling plains of Kent, relax and unwind in one of the 4 beautifully designed modern bedrooms after a long walk through the countryside. Cozy king-sized mattresses are encased in stylish iron bed frames surrounded by contemporary accents with pops of colour. DAB radios and wood and leather furniture provide the ultimate design features for a comfortable stay. End each day with a fireside sun downer in their beautiful beer garden meticulously arranged with hanging plants, olive trees and herb boxes in full bloom. It’s no wonder past guests have described the Duke William as “the perfect little getaway”.
