A Cheshire gastro hotel housed in a 17th-century, Grade II listed building, including sparkling afternoon tea or dinner allowance

Fabulous for gourmands and luxury-seekers who like the idea of staying in a rather characterful 17th-century Grade II listed building, this self-styled ‘restaurant with rooms’ in the pretty Cheshire village of Holmes Chapel is a stylish patch to place your head.

An eclectic design theme reveals itself on arrival, most obvious in the entrance lounge, bar and signature restaurant. Expect beamed ceilings, stone floors, original joinery, clever lighting, and a charming mishmash of artworks and curios throughout. But it’s the British cuisine with a nod to all things Cheshire that is the real winner. The culinary thrills are plentiful: full English breakfasts, superb deli lunches, and kitsch afternoon teas with thoughtful extras.

With offbeat but very tasteful decor that veers on the right side of boutique-chic, each of the individually designed rooms allure with classic and contemporary fixtures and fittings. The vibe here is exceptionally laid-back, but lounging in the cool-looking bar with a Cheshire-brewed ale and taking long walks in the Dane Valley are definitely worth getting out of bed for. The Vicarage Freehouse & Rooms sports a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Accommodation

Expect quirky, country-style boutique decor throughout the guest rooms, with eclectic furnishings that mix up classic and contemporary elements. The Double rooms are kitted out with a flatscreen TV, coffeemaker, comfortable bed with deluxe bed linen and an en-suite bathroom.

Dining

Priding itself on a 25-mile menu, everything is driven by the gardeners, foragers, farmers and suppliers of Cheshire at the signature restaurant. With an emphasis on homemade British specialities and seasonal fare, dishes include pork belly, sea bass, sirloin steak, lamb stew, and the Vicarage burger with ground beef, fries, homemade coleslaw, blush ketchup, cheddar cheese and a brioche bun. Room service is also available.

Breakfast is a full English affair, whilst lunch is served deli-style with an offering of sandwiches, specials, and more. Afternoon tea is served daily and includes freshly cut finger sandwiches, homemade baked treats, loose leaf teas and coffee from Cheshire-based Jaunty Goat. There is also a cool bar serving cocktails, lagers, ciders, spirits and Cheshire-brewed ales.

Location

You’re just a five-minute stroll from Holmes Chapel, a pretty village overlooking the walking paradise that is the Dane Valley. Trip-worthy Cheshire attractions include the Anderton Boat Lift, the ancient Roman walled city of Chester, market town of Nantwich, Wedgewood Visitor Centre and world-famous Jodrell Bank Science Centre that houses the Lovell Radio Telescope. The Vicarage Freehouse & Rooms is one mile from Junction 18 of the M6 and one mile from Holmes Chapel train station, which has links to and from Crewe and Manchester.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
