Good Hotel Guide Review
Countryside chic fills this 17th-century farmhouse on a ridge above vast fields beyond the Cotswold village. ‘An enjoyable place’ with ‘charming, helpful staff’, it has been owned by the Sorensen family for more than 40 years. Large vases of flowers in the public areas bring the outside in; there are open fires, stone walls, a ‘very special spa’, deep sofas and the glossy magazines to read on them. Children are made welcome, too: ‘Three generations of our family felt well taken care of.’ From snug, country-cottage-style rooms to spacious contemporary suites, bedrooms are ‘comfortable and relaxing’; all have an espresso machine, ‘fancy teas’, biscuits, bathrobes and slippers. Eat casually in the Potting Shed, or sample chef Ryan Swift’s menus in the Garden Room facing the lawn – ‘the food is very good’, confirms a Guide reader in 2017. Typical offerings: stone bass, hand-rolled macaroni, coastal herbs; Tamworth pig, apple, black pudding, Cotswold cider. ‘We thought the tasting menu and wine match good value. A gripe: the restaurants’ popularity sometimes leads to slow service.’ At the leisurely breakfast: ‘first-class’ cooked dishes; a ‘memorable’ buffet.
