Hotel & Inns

  • Fancy a night with George Clooney?

    OK, so he won't actually be in the same room, but he's just a stone's throw away from the refreshed, funky Great House in Sonning. Flash him from your window and you might get lucky.

  • Bel & The Dragon, Cookham

    If it is good enough for Tom Hiddleston, it's good enough for Muddy. The Bel & The Dragon's kid-friendly, dog-friendly and celeb-friendly. I'd better go, it would be rude to keep Tom waiting.

Another Place, The Lake in Ullswater in the Lake District is the most ridiculously gorgeous, luxurious, stylish hotel we’ve seen in […]

  • A happy cheese-free Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (eek) and it always conjures up a certain dread. Part of me doesn’t want to be told that Mr Muddy and I should be gazing into each others eyes on demand, the other part longs for him to want to lavish me with gifts and whisk me off my feet […]
