A converted farmhouse in the West Midlands, Hogarths Hotel has been awarded four Silver Stars by The AA -- a ranking given to highly recommended hotels with high standards of hospitality, service and cleanliness -- and is set in 30 acres of grounds, including bluebell woods and a lake with a private island.
The hotel and its grounds are surrounded by open countryside on the outskirts of Dorridge, a small village with a railway station, a charming church and a handful of shops and restaurants.
The National Trust's Packwood House (open Tuesday-Sunday), a Tudor manor with 16th-century tapestries and a famous yew topiary garden, is 10 minutes away by car. Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle are both around 40 minutes' drive from the hotel, and the restaurants, shopping malls and museums of Birmingham city centre are around 40 minutes' drive.
The hotel's 2-AA-Rosette restaurant -- 8 Bar Brasserie -- is a modern dining room. Dishes from the Mediterranean-influenced menu include sharing boards, steaks, burgers and flammkuchen flatbreads. Afternoon tea and teatime snacks are available, and there's also a terrace for al fresco dining in warmer weather.
Superior Rooms have super king-size beds with Egyptian cotton sheets, and free Wi-Fi. Many rooms also have views over the gardens.
