The Neuadd Arms Hotel, Llanwrtyd Wells

The tiny Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells is Britain's smallest town (it has a population of just 600). Surrounded by the majestic Cambrian Mountains, the Neuadd Brewery and Hotel sits right at the heart of it.

This family run, 21-room, 19th century gem boast a farmers' Bell Bar, featuring the original servants' bells and a wood panelled Lounge bar serving Real Ales. Beer fanatics will be happiest around the back of the hotel where the Neuadd Brewery can be found in renovated stables.

The Neuadd Arms is now running Brewing Weekends, where visitors can stay at the hotel and learn all about the brewing process and the chance to make a case of your own beer, complete with personalised labels. A double room in the hotel with breakfast starts from £77.

The Watermill Inn

​The Watermill Inn & Brewery Co, Ing, Windermere

This pretty pub, brewery and hotel all in one has been raking in the brewery accolades of late: it was recently awarded the National Own Brew Pub of the Year in 2013. Located in the village of Ing, two miles south of Lake Windermere, The Watermill is ideally situated for forays into the Lake District, but if it's beer you're after then head to the onsite microbrewery where the owners have created an ale lover's paradise.

The pub has open log fires, up to 16 Real Ales on traditional hand pulled taps at one time and a viewing window into the brewery and beer cellar where you can see the home-brewer ales being made.

Double rooms start from £36 per night and the tariff includes a full English breakfast. Some rooms are dog friendly.

The Old Cannon, Bury St Edmunds

The Old Cannon Brewery, Bar, Brasserie and B&B is the only independent brewery pub in Suffolk where you can see the home-made ales brewed on premises. You can also and sample a selection of in-house ales as well as guest beers and bitters from around the country.

The stainless steel brewing barrels sit in the bar itself and brewing takes place twice a week, which means guests who time their visits right can sup the latest concoction while the next is brewed in front of you. The cosy brewery bedrooms are nestled in the converted old brewhouse and each of the six double rooms comes with a breakfast made with locally sourced Suffolk ingredients.

The brasserie serves dishes made with The Old Cannon's own ales like beef and ale pie and Black Pig ale, wild boar and apple sausages. Double occupancy, including full English breakfast starts from £110 per night with single occupancy from £85.
