Our Inspector's View

Standing proud among Upper Slaughter’s glorious honey-coloured Cotswold stone buildings, Lords of the Manor is a former rectory dating from the 17th century that backs on to eight acres of green and pleasant grounds. The interior has the best of both worlds: original features and chic contemporary furnishings. Making the most of the garden views, the classy look of the dining room makes a relaxed setting for modern cooking that combines elements of French classicism with more contemporary, ingredients-led ideas. Orkney scallop tartare with Granny Smith apple and fennel-infused crème fraîche opens with impressive clarity and balance, while precisely timed Anjou pigeon with salt-baked beetroot, chard, and fig and black pudding condiment represents the more robust end of the spectrum. The same balance and purity of flavours is on display again when it comes to dessert, with malted milk tart with stem ginger and orange rising to the occasion.

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.
