The swan with the great fireplace!

It’s cold outside so we thought we’d take a look at some hotels with cosy fireplaces to sit beside – but then a strange thing happened – we noticed lots of them had swan as part of their name! So here’s a small selection of them to warm your eyes…

The Swan, Bibury


The fire looks very inviting – and the wine too – at the 17th-century former coaching inn in the Cotswolds.

The Swan, Southwold


Warm the cockles of your heart at this Soutwold hotel, which overlooks the market square.

The Swan Inn, Swinbrook

This lovely old inn by the River Windrush has a warming woodburner in the bar so you can get rid of the chills as you take your fill.

The Swan Hotel and Spa, Newby Bridge

Spend the day on Lake Windermere in the gorgeous Lake District, then toast your feet at this fireplace – complete with dog.
