Country pub hotel in Knowle

Close to the charming village of Knowle, this historic lodge provides comfortable, sensibly priced boutique hotel rooms near Solihull, Dorridge, Birmingham and the NEC - with the added advantage of delicious pub hospitality downstairs.

Dating back to 1816, The King's Arms (formerly The Heron's Nest) is furnished with 10 comfy bedrooms, all with enticing en-suite showers. Note that the rooms are reached via two flights of stairs. On the ground floor, a cosy pub serves up seasonal food and drink, together with bags of rustic charm. Its countryside setting is especially appealing during the summer, when the outdoor dining area springs to life.

Knowle is a lovely place to unwind, with a pretty village square, an early 15th century church and lots of idyllic, timber-framed cottages. You could also take a stroll down the Grand Union Canal - but be sure to pack some sandwiches, as the towpath stretches for 147 miles.

The wider area offers attractions to suit every taste. Shopaholics will love Solihull's Touchwood Centre, history buffs will enjoy the moated, medieval charms of Baddesley Clinton and families will relish a trip to Warwick and Kenilworth Castles.
