Hotels in West Midlands
West Midlands: magnificent country house hotels and family holiday adventures
The so called heart of England, the West Midlands has so much to offer visitors. From city attractions in Birmingham, to the famous Black Country known for its industrial heritage, which is still in evidence today, immortalised in museum attractions as well as the general landscape.
The West Midlands is a large and sprawling part of the UK, taking into its remit the likes of Coventry and Warwickshire, where attractions such as Arbury Hall – the gothic gem of the Midlands, and Abbey Fields delight children and adults alike. Meanwhile, Herefordshire is known for its undeniable beauty – filled with National Trust properties to explore and ancient estates including the 14th century moated manor of Brockhampton or the fairytale Georgian Castle of Eastnor with its enchanting deer park.
Referencing the region’s food and drink produce, the Cider Museum in Hereford, where you can walk through the original champagne cider cellars is a joyful attraction, while in Stratford-on-Avon, the medieval market town does not disappoint as the 16th century birthplace of William Shakespeare, still keeping his legacy alive at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon.
Such a diverse selection of attractions, from family holidays to adventure getaways, requires an equal range of hotels and B&Bs in the West Midlands and surrounding area to cater to all travellers, and the region does not disappoint. For example, Barnacle Hall near Coventry is a 16th century farmhouse bed and breakfast within easy reach of Warwick Castle and Kenilworth Castle, and Coombe Abbey is a magnificent country house hotel dating back to 1150 AD and with an intriguing history that even takes in the Gunpowder Plot.
