Good Hotel Guide Review
The hub of the village, this stone-built restaurant-with-rooms (Calcot Hotels) is also a style hub, with country-chic rooms and smartened-up drinking and dining areas. Tuck in to chef John Jewell’s hearty pub classics – he uses plenty of fruit and vegetables from the kichen garden at sister hotel Barnsley House, up the street (see main entry). Bedrooms have a separate entrance from the pub. Here, find old beams and deep roll-top baths, perhaps a four-poster bed. Light sleepers should ask for a room away from the road. In the morning, English farmhouse breakfasts have home-made jams and home-baked bread. Green-thumbed guests, take note: there’s complimentary access to the famous Barnsley House gardens designed by late horticulturalist Rosemary Verey. Bar, restaurant. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music. Children (cot, high chair; £25 supplement) and dogs welcomed. 4½ miles E of Cirencester. 6 bedrooms. Per room B&B from £99. Dinner £31.
