GO Country Hotels in Liverpool

Places to Stay in Liverpool If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern day living, then why not enjoy a rural retreat at one of the wide variety of country houses around Liverpool.

You'll find several options less than an hour’s drive from the city centre so you can still do the sightseeing tour, but a country hotel offers you the perfect chance to relax and recharge your batteries.

One of the most renowned country house hotels in Liverpool, and a firm favourite with visiting celebrities, is the Woolton Redbourne [map], situated the heart of the old Woolton Village. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and lawns, this Victorian home has been refurbished to its original splendour and boasts four-poster beds and jacuzzis in many of the rooms.

With the hotel being just a short ride from the city centre, you can choose to enjoy traditional village life in beautiful surroundings, or head off to one of Liverpool’s many tourist attractions.

If you’re looking for a luxury hotel and health club rolled into one then get along to Thornton Hall [map] , which boasts a superb array of leisure facilities surrounded by beautiful countryside. Originally built as a family home in 1840, the building still retains the old oak carvings and leather ceiling, and has a delightful wine bar and restaurant. The health club includes a large swimming pool and a gym offering all the latest fitness equipment, so you can work up a sweat and relieve all that stress.

For a country break with top sports facilities to help you unwind then why not book a room at the Tree Tops Country House [map] in Formby or the Park Royal International Hotel [map] in Warrington.

Situated just 14 miles from the city centre, Tree Tops offers chalet-style accommodation set in five acres of woodland, and comes complete with not one, but three, golf courses.

While the Park Royal, on the other hand, is set in private gardens and boasts a fitness club and a beauty centre, which offers hydrotherapy and a solarium. And if you’re feeling a little sporty then why not try your hand at tennis or dancing as the hotel also has tennis courts and dance studios available for guests.

Another popular stop for business visitors and tourists who like the chance to wind down after a hectic day of meetings or sightseeing is the Village Whiston Hotel [map]. Located just 200 yards from the M57 and M62 motorways, and only a 25-minute drive from Liverpool city centre, the hotel has a leisure club, restaurant and café-bar. Guests can enjoy a meal in Salingers Bar & Restaurant or The Village Pub, relax with a dip in the pool, unwind in the sauna or steam room or chill out in the whirlpool spa. And for those who are feeling a little more energetic, there is also a fully equipped fitness studio and many different classes in the aerobics studio.

Not strictly a country retreat but still worth a mention here is the Stutelea Hotel [map], which is set in the scenic seaside town of Southport. The hotel is only 25 minutes drive from Liverpool city centre and boasts balconies overlooking an award-winning garden, sea views and a top-class restaurant and bar.

Southport has a local marina with many sports facilities and a good selection of elegant shopping arcades for those who prefer not to get their feet wet.
