Heading to Britain, and looking to explore this country outside of the major cities? If so, you are in for a treat, as the charming towns and villages in this nation will earn a special place in your heart when you get to know them.

When staying in these rural areas, the following charming bed and breakfasts in the English countryside will be part of the reason why this trip here certainly won’t be your last.

1) Orchard Barn, Bridport

Put together everything you’ve ever considered when it comes to the dream bed and breakfast in the English countryside, and you’ll likely come up with something that looks like the Orchard Barn, which is located near the English countryside town of Bridport.

While this place inhabits a large country house, a separate wing for guests ensures privacy for those that crave it, while still permitting access to the Corbetts, the lovely couple that runs this place for much of the year. Spend your nights by a roaring fireplace with ample firewood standing at the ready, anticipating the gourmet English breakfast that will be waiting for you the following morning.

2) Brick House Farm, Buntingford

Want to stay on an actual working farm during your getaway to the English countryside? The appropriately named Brick House Farm will be an inspired choice for those seeking to check this desire of their bucket lists, as it mixes the elegance of a top line bed and breakfast with the authenticity of a farm that runs in the way it has for generations.

The agricultural bounty of this property inevitably finds it way into the first meal of the day, served in a lovely garden for one of the more romantic moments you will experience if you are traveling with your significant other.

Additionally, if the summer weather should get a touch sweltering, the on-site pool will grant the opportunity for refreshment, so don’t forget to pack a swimsuit!

3) Cherry Trees Bed and Breakfast, Chipping Campden

Situated smack in the midst of the Cotswolds, the Cherry Trees Bed and Breakfast makes for a great base to explore this region while having a place that feels like home to go back to at the end of the day. Located within easy walking distance of the postcard perfect country town of Chipping Campden, you won’t have to go far for many of your sightseeing adventures.

When the time comes to head back to this accommodation, you’ll love the daily tea and cookies, luxurious shower and bath in your ensuite, and the local knowledge and companionship of your hosts, Angie and Steve.
