This Grade II-listed rectory feels more like a relaxed, country home than an upscale hotel, welcomed with sinking sofas, inviting cosy nooks to host board games and afternoon tea, whilst the intimate glasshouse conservatory serves breakfast and dinner, extending onto a charming green lawn and walled garden. With fuss-free decor, each room feels like a home away from home, staff offer a personal and accommodating service to each guest, whilst thoughtful hospitable touches are dotted around the hotel.
Finish the evening with a nightcap at the hotel. Pour a tipple from the generous bar cart and honesty box situated on the main landing, en route to your bedroom.
The hotel has 18 rooms available, 15 in the main house and 3 within the private cottage situated within the hotels' ground, overlooking the gardens & conveniently next to the pool area, which is a great alternative when visiting with family or a group of friends. The cottage is available for private hire, whilst guests can still enjoy amenities of the hotel and room service.
Fancy a venture out from the hotel? Printed walking guides are available to collect from reception, designed by the owners themselves. Explore the best local spots to the area on foot, whilst taking in picturesque Cotswolds scenery.
Tetbury, an idyllic neighbouring market town, is packed to the brim with Antique shops and independent homeware stores to discover. A high street lined with classic Cotswold yellow-stoned buildings, it is easy to see why the village is seen as a must see when staying at the hotel.
A standout on the high street, Josephine Ryan Antiques, occupies a striking 3-story floor town house, draped with dried foliage and a grand doorway to lead you in. Explore room after room of troves, eclectic furniture and Daylesford's homeware range, a local brand from neighbouring organic Daylesford Farm, an award winning farm shop situated in Kingham.
Before checking out, ensure to head to the conservatory to enjoy breakfast which is included in your stay, alongside complimentary morning cocktails of either Mimosas and Bloody Mary's. This thoughtful extra really reiterates the courteous nature of the hotel and service.
