Set in a 19th-century manor house, Ponsbourne retains the historic charm of its beautiful wood-panelled rooms, which are atmospherically lit by chandeliers, with huge, plush beds. A contrastingly modern experience awaits in the grounds, where pods and domes make a cosy spot to enjoy Indian dishes like lucknowi lamb shank – all while taking in the view of 200 acres (81ha) of Hertfordshire countryside.

There’s an art deco feel to this Hatfield hotel, which opened in 1936. Gorgeous rooms exhibit the design of the era while upholding modern standards of hotel comfort. The Element Bar has similar decor and serves fantastic classic cocktails – be sure to try the old fashioned – but don’t miss the chance to enjoy a game of table football.

    1352 is the date of establishment displayed proudly on the front of this great building, which was once a Medieval coaching inn. Today, the Wellington’s rooms vary in character but retain traditional features – some are tartan-walled with four-poster beds, while others are voguishly red-brick, with lovely freestanding bathtubs. All are extremely comfortable, though, and feature distinctly modern Nespresso machines. The food here is well-loved: try the pan-roasted monkfish.

    Restoring Welwyn’s weary travellers since 1681, the White Hart preserves original features in its modern rooms – you’ll notice the beams, if you book one in the stable block. Particularly memorable are the Boutique Rooms, featuring bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. The food at the restaurant is superb: the tasting menu includes dishes such as rare salt beef with truffle oil and balsamic reduction.

    A roaring log fire, real ale on tap and hearty pub grub – the White Horse is as cosy and welcoming as you’d hope a country pub to be. That extends to the traditionally designed guest rooms upstairs. Dogs and muddy boots are welcome – which is just as well, as there’s a fantastic choice of walking trails in the town of Hertford and the surrounding countryside.
