The
Experience

A beautiful English inn, a 17th-century cider house made of ancient stone that sits on the green in a Cotswold village with free-range hens strutting their stuff and a family of ducks bathing in the pond. Inside, locals gather to chew the cud, scoff great food and wash it down with Cotswold ales. The fire burns all year, you get low ceilings, painted stone walls, the odd settle, country rugs on flagstone floors. Nicely priced bedrooms have lots of colour and style. Those in the main house have more character, those in the courtyard are bigger (and quieter). You’ll find painted wood, pretty fabrics, rustic furniture, spotless bathrooms; most have great views, too. Breakfast and supper are taken in a pretty dining room (exposed stone walls, pale wood tables), while you can lunch by the fire in the bar on devilled kidneys, grilled mackerel, a plate of British cheeses. There are lovely unpompous touches like jugs of cow parsley in the loo. There’s loads to do, too: antiques in Stow, golf at Burford, circular walks through gorgeous country. The front terrace teems with life in summer.

Local points of interest from Tania Quin

  • Try one of the beautiful walks along the Oxfordshire Way. You can get a sheet of walks from the inn or pick up the Explorer Walks leaflet from Stow Tourist Office.
  • Hire a bike for the day or try one of four local golf courses - Burford, Naunton Downs, Chipping Norton and Wychwood.
  • We're 24 miles from Oxford, 19 miles from Cheltenham, and close to the picturesque Cotswold villages of Chipping Campden, The Slaughters, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold.
  • Visit the gardens at Hidcote, or perhaps Batsford Arboretum, with its excellent botanical garden and falconry displays.
  • Blenheim Palace is only a 25 minute drive, and Chastleton House, possibly the finest Jacobean country house in Britain, is nearby.
  • For real ale enthusiasts, try Hook Norton Brewery, discover antiques in Burford, get a dose of retail therapy at Bicester Village, or try Daylesford's renowned farm shop and spa.
