There's a laid-back atmosphere, whether you're lounging in the library with a crackling fire in winter, or lazing in a deck chair on the expansive lawns in summer. Throughout the ground floor, you'll find stylish furnishings and lots of cosy corners.


We appreciated the little touches, like ordering a coffee that came with a little biscuit, or sitting by the fire in the library, which was gently stoked by the attentive staff. Facilities include the glorious walled garden with its terrace for al fresco dining, several private dining areas and a large car park.

Food & Drink

You can choose to dine informally in the bar, or for something more romantic, book a table in the restaurant. The food is modern British, with an emphasis on local Cotswold ingredients. We recommend the salmon and n'duja fishcakes with rich lobster sauce and fennel and apple salad.

The Restaurant: classic British cuisine, locally sourced ingredients. All-day menu, open daily.

The Bar: cosy armchairs and log fire. Local ciders, ales, bar snacks and nibbles. Open daily from 10am (11am Sun).
