Weekend rates will start from £130 per room per night including breakfast. For more information visit thebradleyhare.co.uk.
Tucked away on the southside of a beautiful 40 acre beechwood forest, Beacon Hill’s minimalist Treehouse is certainly a cabin with a difference. This beautiful property is clad in burnt Siberian larch and sits high on Corten steel columns. It also has a small balcony perfect for a morning coffee surrounded by nature. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximise the breath-taking natural surroundings. Perfect for getting lost in the wild.
A three night stay for two guests in the treehouse is £750, fully inclusive of everything Beacon Hill has to offer. For more information visit www.premiercottages.co.uk.
While not exactly a ‘new’ opening, the (wonderfully dog-friendly) Pheasant Inn is welcoming three new bedrooms this May and it is certainly worth shouting about. The Pheasant Inn boasts a 450 year-rich history in hospitality and today, under the helm of hotelier Jack Greenall, the Inn offers cosy, yet luxurious accommodation truncated with a flavoursome food offering too.
Rooms at the Pheasant Inn start from £105 per night. For more information visit www.thepheasant-inn.co.uk.
