A room with a view and a fab soaking tub.
The USP: The Bear's Paw has been in the village of Warmingham for ages, but after a dramatic fire, it underwent a £2m restoration. The result? A gorgeous blend of old and new.
Book it now if: You need a weekend away with someone special. The rooms and luxurious beds make this an ideal place to sneak off for a weekend curled up away from the outside world.
Bedding down: Each of the 17 rooms at the Bear's Paw has a unique feel. Our favourite (above) features a lovely meadow view that can be enjoyed while laying in bed and an over-sized tub perfect for an indulgent candlelit soak.
Local cheese on offer along with other yummy British treats.
Feed me: The award winning kitchen is overseen by executive chef Leigh Myers. Ranging from nibbles to enjoy at the bar, to robust mains, there are plenty of delicious items to tempt you down from your room round the clock. The menu makes excellent use of local ingredients, including a starter of baked field mushrooms with Blacksticks blue cheese and Cheshire farm made ice cream. The breakfast bit of this B&B is a yummy mix of continental style pastries and cooked menu including a supreme full English.
Easily bored: It is safe to say this is not a destination for those dreaming of adventure, but that doesn't mean there is nothing to do beyond the wall's of the Bear's Paw. The hotel is set just across from a lovely country church and the surrounding countryside is perfect for a midday walk.
What's the damage: Standard doubles start at £99 while a superior will set you back £140. All prices include breakfast. Check in opens at 3pm and check out is at 11am.
