When it comes to a quintessentially English countryside setting, the rural splendour of the Cotswolds is the classic choice and our stylish 17th century coaching inn is right at the heart of it all.
Crackling fires, stag heads adorning the walls and a distinct charcoal-black colour scheme provide a relaxed but refined setting for superb wining and dining. Our restaurant offers a seasonal menu using local produce, including fresh game that comes direct from neighbouring country estates (we particularly recommend the Badminton venison), and in summer we serve wood-fired pizza direct from our outdoor oven.
When the evening draws to a close, rest your head in one of our well-appointed upstairs rooms where four-poster beds and sumptuous bedding ensure a good night’s sleep. Or stay in one of our two self-catering cottages, suitable for families and larger groups.
The Cotwolds is a walkers’ paradise so you’ll find plenty of trails through spectacular countryside and chocolate-box pretty stone villages to delight you. And horse lovers will appreciate the strong network of bridleways to explore (equestrian heritage runs especially deep here, thanks to the annual Badminton Horse Trials in the estate next door). For real Cotswold charm, visit the golden-toned town of Tetbury or Lacock Village, or take a stroll through the nearby Westonbirt National Arboretum to admire one of the world’s finest tree collections.
