London: The Bedford

188 user reviews 4

A firm Balham staple, The Bedford is one of the area's most popular pubs. Not just a place for a pint and a bite to eat, the venue also boasts 15 boutique hotel rooms. Whether you're looking for somewhere to rest your head after a night of the venue's live music or comedy or are just keen on a cosy London staycation, you're in luck.

Staines: Swan Hotel

12 user reviews 5

Staines might not strike you as the first place to take a weekend break in the UK, but Swan Hotel is worth casting those doubts aside. Sat on the banks of the Thames, the 16th Century pub mixes traditional charm with modern touches, from open fireplaces in the downstairs dining area to free standing bath tubs in the bright rooms.

Hindon: The Lamb

640 user reviews 4

If you like oodles of history with your UK staycation, then The Lamb in Hindon should keep you entertained. Said to be a public house since the 12th century, the boozer now has 18 boutique bedrooms - all decorated individually (though we love the huge four-poster beds). And when you're not snoozing, make sure to check out the legendary Sunday roast.

As well as only being a short drive outside of London, Red Lion Hotel in Wendover is also great for a winter break, with a long list of British and seasonal dishes. Once you're done feasting on the likes of fish and chips and steaks, head up to one of the bedrooms of this former coaching inn for a simple but cosy stay.

UK Pub accommodation doesn't come much cuter than Pilgrim Inn, the thatched roof stay on the edge of the New Forest. Interiors are just as 'grammable, think lots of dark wood, four-poster beds, and oak beams running across the ceiling.

With two AA rosettes to its name, White Star in Southampton is one for the foodies. The gatro-pub with rooms has got enough to keep you from leaving the building for your entire stay, from fresh seafood in the kitchen to nautical themed bedrooms.

With its constellation-themed rooms and views over the River Isis, Head of the River makes for a perfect Oxford hideaway. The pub with accommodation also features a large beer garden and is only a few minutes' walk from the city centre - making it perfect for exploring the gorgeous UK staycation destination.

Spread Eagle Hotel

15 user reviews 5

A pub in Wandsworth, Spread Eagle Hotel is a great shout if you're looking for unique experiences. The venue offers formal dinners in the Garrett Dining Room, lunches in its lounge and fabulous pints to sink at the main bar.

Chester: Nelson's Bar

773 user reviews 4

Nestled within Chester's Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa, Nelson's Bar is serving up tasty pints and cosy vibes. Along with a warming fireplace and classic pub grub, the watering hole is also dog and family-friendly.

Tie up your walking shoes, bring your pooch, and get ready for the ultimate country stay at White Buck Inn. The picturesque pub is stealing hearts with its oak-beamed ceilings, cosy rooms, whopping beer garden, and miles of walking thanks to its New Forest location.

Every country retreat needs an equally as gorgeous sleep; step up Fisherman's Haunt in Dorset. Once you're done traipsing around nearby Christchurch and Bournemouth, head to this quaint inn to find acres of rolling hills, cosy rooms, and a huge breakfast offering.
