Our selection of places to stay in England's Midlands includes sections in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland. Click on these for our summary listings of hotels in each county. Our remaining places to stay in the Midlands can be found below, including our old favourite, Langar Hall.

The Midlands covers a huge variety of scenery, threaded by the M1 and the A1. From flat, plain farmland in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire to terrific rolling moorland in the Peak District, there's huge variety. The heavy industry that blighted the landscape in the 19th century is gradually fading away: only the remains of slag heaps and their modern successors, the wind farms, remind us of once-industrial counties.

The Midlands is not the best region of Britain for charming small hotels, but we keep finding new ones that impress us.
