Few things could be more peaceful than a riverside hotel, falling asleep to the sound of water flowing or watching the boats and ducks bob by when you wake in the morning. With so many beautiful parts of the UK to visit, many are blessed with the scenic joy of a river outside, or at least close by, allowing for blissful strolls, perfect summer evenings with a glass of wine - all creating the perfect setting for a restful holiday. From The River Frome in Wareham, where you might stay in the 16th-century priory turned foodie haven that is The Priory, to the River Marlais in the Brechfa Forest, where the Ty Mawr offers a warm welcome, especially for hikers and bikers. From The Peacock at Rowsley - a firm favourite amongst fishing folk in the Peak District National Park, to the Michelin-starred Red Lion Freehouse in East Chisenbury, there are lots of places to choose from. The question is, are you a walker? A cyclist? A fishing fan? Or simply an admirer of the natural world.
