If you’re after a countryside location just 20 minutes from London, check out (or check-in to) our Premier Inn hotel in Ware, Hertfordshire. One of the oldest settlements in Europe, Ware is a charming little town, just a short hop from Hertford and brimming with pubs along the lovely River Lea. Got the kids in tow? A trip to Scott’s Grotto makes a great family outing.
