A charming Cheshire bolthole near Manchester, with AA Rosette awarded dining and manicured grounds – includes breakfast plus family and dinner options

Originally built in 1903, Mere Court Hotel has since been restored to a charming country house hotel fit for such a beautiful pocket of Cheshire, just a 30-minute drive from Manchester. Ringed by gently rolling countryside, this cosy boutique is a tranquil escape for urban dwellers, surrounded by seven acres of perfectly manicured gardens encircling a flower-lined lake.

Throw in individually designed rooms and an AA Rosette restaurant, and you can see why Mere Court Hotel has consistently positive TripAdvisor reviews. And its impressive guest list supports the accolade, with visitors over the years including Ruby Wax, Dawn French and Bill Clinton.

Spend your days exploring nearby Tatton Park, a grand mansion sitting pretty in deer-speckled grounds, plus the shady oasis of Delamere Forest and Dunham Massey, a National Trust country house. Once you’ve had your fill of the area’s charms, retreat to the hotel’s award-winning restaurant for modern British dishes with a French twist – served with postcard-pretty waterside views.
