The Feathered Nest Country Inn

Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

The village is tiny, the bar is lively, and the Cotswolds’ views are gorgeous. But nothing detracts from the food, worthy of a Michelin star


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


An appealing flagged bar steps down to a smouldering fire… contemplate the menu as you sip a fine wine. In this epicurean heaven, chef Kuba’s inventiveness makes each mouthful a joy. In summer, spill into the garden where the view reaches five miles.

This 18th-century malthouse has been restored and transformed by enthusiastic owners who do nothing by halves. The sense of comfort is enveloping, the wines are wide-ranging, and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. What’s more, the kitchen churns its butter and cures its charcuterie.

Burford, with its medieval three-arched bridge and wonderful church, lies five miles south; little Stow-in-the-Wold is three miles north. Visit tea shops, browse antique shops, and head for the prettiest street in the Cotswolds – or one of them: Arlington Row in Bibury.

Three couples, including myself and my husband went to celebrate all our wedding anniversaries. We all booked rooms, had dinner and stayed the night. We were very well looked after and had a fantastic meal with accompanying wine and to top it off a fantastic breakfast. The staff made us feel very special and we had a wonderful time away that we will never forget.

The neighbourhood

There are no shops in Nether Westcote; the village is a firmly residential spot. The Cotswolds are beloved by the famous, thanks to its medieval market towns and chocolate-box villages. The Rollrights, The Westcotes, Upper Slaughter, Lower Slaughter, Bourton-on-the-Water... each journey takes you through gentle lanes and across streams. While the landscape is lovely, the honey stone architecture reflects the area’s wool-rich past.
