Our View

Now a stylish and popular free house that’s part of Calcot & Calcot Spa this stone farmhouse was originally built by Cistercian monks in the 14th century. Part of the Calcot Collection, the buzzy and comfortable Gumstool Inn has a proper country-pub atmosphere and stocks a good selection of West Country ales such as Butcombe Bitter, as well as Mortimers Orchard cider. An excellent choice of more than 20 wines is offered by the glass or bottle. The food here is top-notch and there is a pronounced use of local suppliers and seasonal produce. A typical meal might kick off with starters of crispy duck salad, soy, chilli, cucumber, spring onion, radish and sesame; or honey-roast figs, Parma ham, ricotta and toasted hazelnuts. Among the main courses may be found truffled chicken kiev, wild mushrooms, parsley mash and seasonal greens. Leave a space for the apple and rhubarb crumble with ice cream or the old-fashioned but comforting treacle tart. In the summer, grab a table on the pretty, flower-filled sun terrace, while indoor winter evenings are warmed with log fires.

About the area

Discover Gloucestershire

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.
