Hotels & Inns

  • Brighton’s Rock ‘n’ Roll hotel

    We like nothing more than a quirky and cool weekend bolthole, and there's plenty of both to be had at Brighton's unique Hotel Pelirocco. Muddy books in.

  • A fairy tale stay

    Muddy goes all 'Rapunzel' and checks into an impressive 15th Century folly for the night with panoramic views over a famous Civil War battlefield.

  • Bedfordshire bolthole

    We make a break for the border, with Muddy's Sophie checking in to the recently refurbed Woburn Hotel in Beds for a romantic weekend. Ooh la la!

  • Girls’ weekend getaways

    Try these 30 awesome spas, inns, bars and retreats across the Muddy counties and reconnect with your bezzies in style.

  • Five star freebies

    Three weeks to go this summer and it's good news for Staycationers - no charge for kids to eat or stay at superluxe Stoke Park this month. Book up and chill out!

  • Gin Heaven at The Feathers, Woodstock

    Take one 17th century hotel, add a 400-strong gin bar, mix in one of the prettiest towns in Oxfordshire, and you're ready to be intoxicated by The Feathers Hotel.

  • The Shaven Crown

    Elizabeth I stayed here - what more do you want? A quirky, homely, lovely inn in Shipton-under-Wychwood from which to explore the Cotswolds.

  • A classic Ridgeway pub

    A superlative Sunday lunch at a rejuvenated country pub near the Ridgeway in South Oxfordshire? Shall we?

  • porch house interior bedroom king-sized bed lights

    The Porch House, Stow

    We came, we ate, and we loved the romantic nooks and roomy spaces of The Porch House, Stow-on-the-wold, just over the Glos border.

  • Stoke Place Drawing Room brown leather sofa fireplace mirror interior

    Want to take over Stoke Place?

    An attractive Queen Anne country hotel in South Bucks with Capability Brown grounds (ooooh!) and good value conference and wedding facilities. Oh, and did we mention the 'Bottomless Sunday lunch'?!
