At some indeterminate point, the village of Buckland melds into the 10-acre corner in which the old manor stands, next to the village church. It's a delightful Cotswold location for a country house that exudes a sense of history from its every pore. White wood-panelled walls interspersed with mullioned windows overlooking the gardens and the hills beyond are the setting for Will Guthrie's finely crafted modern cooking, which is lent extra fragrance by the products of the manor's own herb garden. Dishes are ingenious and attractive, sparkling with creativity. You might begin with roast quail breast with roast nectarine and curry mayonnaise. Main courses are equally thoughtful, witness fillet of turbot with courgette, saffron chickpea sauce and vièrge dressing, or veal rib-eye with shallot cream, trompettes and purple sprouting broccoli. Round things off with a beautifully refreshing lemon meringue parfait with lemon curd, matcha tea meringue and lemon balm.

About The area
Gloucestershire is home to a variety of landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages, roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watered by Britain’s longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring, and beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.
Throughout the county you are never far away from the past. Neolithic burial chambers are widespread, and so too are the remains of Roman villas, many of which retain the fine mosaic work produced by Cirencester workshops. There are several examples of Saxon building, while in the Stroud valleys abandoned mills and canals are the mark left by the Industrial Revolution. Gloucestershire has always been known for its abbeys, but most of them have disappeared or lie in ruins. However, few counties can equal the churches that remain here. These are many and diverse, from the ‘wool’ churches in Chipping Campden and Northleach, to the cathedral at Gloucester, the abbey church at Tewkesbury or remote St Mary’s, standing alone near Dymock.
