Summer Stays 2024

28th June 2024

Summer is here, and here it is to stay


If you’re still pondering on where to spend some down-time this summer, we’ve rustled up four summer-loving pubs that’ll more than do the trick for an ultimate summer staycation.

Pheasant Inn


Best for: a countryside getaway just a few leaps from London.


If a blissful boutique-y bolthole in the countryside sounds like your idea of a dream, the Pheasant Inn is sure to tick all the right boxes. Renowned for being fabulously foodie and gorgeously good-looking, you’ll feel a million miles from it all, but in reality, you’ll not have travelled far out of the city to get there (double whammy).

Top tip: for other ways to while away your away-from-it-all days, head to Hungerford and lose yourself in the antique shops and eateries that adorn the historic market town.


The Seagate


Best for: a maritime meander on the North Devon coast.


If not-so-sleepy fishing villages ft. cute insta-worthy pastel hued cottages are your thing, then a trip to Appledore is a must. Famed for its maritime history, quality seafood (no surprise there) and independent boutique-lined colourful streets, Appledore truly has a little something for everyone.

Just across the way sits the pretty little village of Instow, a teeny ferry ride away, whilst a little drive west will land you in Northampton Burrows Country Park and WestwardHo! beach.

Loveable landlords Tony & Sian can reel off a fabulous list of things to do whilst staying at The Seagate, so be sure to ask them for their faves.

Top tip: you’ll be able to watch all the Appledore Regatta (Sunday 28th July) fun from The Seagate’s prime quay-side spot. If the kids are in tow, there’s crabbing competitions and check tug-of-war, too.


Wheatsheaf Inn


Best for: a quintessential Cotswolds getaway.


If you’ve pinned a classic Cotswolds break on your Pinterest board, it’ll look a lot like this. Lots of countryside-y loveliness, cobbled streets and honey-hued walkways, local whole foods, booted walks with pup in tow, and plethora of pretty independent shops and cafes.

You’ll find all of that and more in the little market town of Northleach, home to the much-loved Wheatsheaf Inn.


Top tip: if pizza and Prosecco al fresco pulls on the heart strings, the Wheatsheaf Inn’s garden pizza oven fires up throughout summer (the only pizza’s you’ll be able to bag in Northleach, might we add), every Friday 6-9pm and weekends 12-9pm.


The Canford


Best for: a blue-flag beachy break on the Dorset coast


If you love the idea of a classic seaside-y summer break complete with beach huts (some which date back to the early 1900’s) and fine sandy beaches, this one’s for you. A short stroll into Canford Cliffs village, you’ll find quirky little cafes, restaurants and shops, while 10-minutes in the opposite direction, lands you in the ever-so-famous and equally good-looking Sandbanks. If you’re a Burger Shack fan, you’ve got to try The Canford’s twist on this with their Boat Shack (need we say anymore?).

Top tip: if you like to think of yourself as the green-fingered type, spend a day at Compton Acres (one of the finest privately owned gardens in England). There’s a whole 10-acres to explore with five themed gardens, over 3,000 species of plants and woodland waterfalls, and it’s just 10-minutes away.
