Justin and Charlie’s ability to create beautiful small hotels at the speed of light is unprecedented. Their fourth – lost in the country a few miles west of Oxford – is a reinvention of the country pub, though not as you might think. This isn’t a stripped-back monument to contemporary design, rather a cool take on all things retro with quirky art and a little neon mixed in for good measure. You’ll find vintage wallpapers, vivid colours, glass cabinets filled with curios, then a pink, up-cycled sofa in the cocktail bar. Country rugs cover flagstone floors, a fire burns on both sides in the bar, an original pine bench comes with plumped-up cushions. You eat in the restaurant amid ferns and flock wallpaper, perhaps Dorset crab with sorrel sauce, local venison with rainbow chard, gin and tonic panna cotta; there’s a pie and a pint at the bar, too, and a dining terrace that overlooks the kitchen garden. Stunning bedrooms set the standard for others to follow: fat beds, exposed timbers, robes in flawless bathrooms, old tea chests for bedside tables. We’ve hardly scratched the surface. Exceptional.
