The Feathered Nest Country Inn

Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

It’s hard to beat this boutique inn - expect tons of style, beautiful rooms, fabulous food and 5-mile views from the garden...


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


The village is tiny, the view is fantastic, the bar is lively, the rooms are a treat. This 300-year-old malthouse sits in 55 acres of green and pleasant land and is utterly gorgeous inside and out. The view from the garden is one of the best in the Cotswolds – a five-mile sweep across quilted fields to a distant ridge. Interiors are just as good. A warm rustic style mixes beautifully with original timbers and old stone walls. A fire smoulders in the lovely bar, doors in the restaurant open onto the terrace, the garden room has tartan walls and the white wine cellar on display. Bedrooms delight. One is enormous, two have the view, beds are dressed in crisp linen. Some have power showers, one has a claw-foot bath, all have robes. You get coffee machines and iPod docks, too. Delicious food waits downstairs, perhaps octopus with lemon and garlic, pollock with saffron and fennel, tarte tatin with vanilla ice cream. You eat on the terrace in summer looking out on the lake and distant farms. A couple of luxurious cabins are soon to be sprinkled across the grounds – Amanda and Tony do nothing by halves. Magical.

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.
