The Cholmondeley Arms
Classes at this former school have been swapped out for pub sessions – the teachers’ quarters have been converted into charming bedrooms. There are six rooms at this red brick 19th-century property, just a 25-minute drive from Cheshire and each one is named after a teacher. The entire venue has a warm and welcoming feel, with a blend of period and modern features. Lacklustre school meals have been replaced by a mouth-watering menu at the ground floor pub – the most popular dishes include the legendary steak and kidney pie and the famous Cholmondeley Mess, featuring a moreish mix of meringue, cream, strawberries and raspberries.
