More Room Types

The Elms Hotel is an impressive manor house in 10 acres of grounds, an hour's drive from Birmingham. Nearby, Wyre Forest Nature Reserve is a good spot for walking and cycling, and is home to Go Ape (a high-wire treetop challenge). Witley Court and Gardens is less than a 10-minute drive, and the West Midland Safari Park and Severn Valley Steam Railway are 30 minutes by car.

Back at the hotel, there is a croquet lawn, tennis courts, a tree swing and a trail to follow around the gardens. Much of the herbs, vegetables and fruit used in the restaurant are grown here, and the greenhouse has more obscure plants including Venus flytraps. The spa has a sauna, a steam room, an ice fountain and a thermal suite, plus there's an indoor pool and a hydro pool that goes outside.

There are 23 bedrooms furnished in a country-house style. Most are in the main house but there are six in a modern annexe. Expect free Wi-Fi, a DVD player, a complimentary baby listening service, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Larger groups should upgrade to the Gladstone Suite, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus views over the Teme Valley. Some rooms are dog friendly but prior arrangement is needed.

On Sunday mornings, there's a breakfast club where little ones are looked after by nursery staff to give parents a much-needed lie-in. Later on, the Garden Café serves a relaxed menu all day, including a high tea for children each afternoon. Little ones are also welcome in the Library Bar, which is cosy with an open fire and dark wood. The Brookes restaurant is adults-only in the evenings, but has an early sitting for children. 

Families are more than welcome here -- there is an Ofsted-registered crèche offering guests a free 2-hour session per day, outdoor play areas to explore, early dinner times and tailored menus. Mums and dads are well looked after, too, with an indoor pool and a spa, plus adult-only dinners in the restaurant. Older children will be taken with the Xboxes, the air hockey machine and the DVD library in the games room.
