Our Inspector's view

Nestled in the heart of the Cotswold’s Golden Triangle, in the sleepy village of Nether Westcote, this charming 17th century inn has been restored with care, offering a perfect base from which to explore the idyllic Cotswolds. The picturesque towns of Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Norton are all within easy reach, with the mainline train located just a few miles away in the village of Kingham. Sitting in a glorious position overlooking the Evenlode Valley, the far-reaching views can be enjoyed throughout the Inn, including from most of the guest bedrooms and The Cottage. The surrounding fields and bridleways offer guests the option to explore on foot and enjoy the stunning landscape, whilst the spacious grounds of the inn encourage you to sit comfortably and enjoy the views with a drink of your choosing. There are four sumptuous bedrooms, all individually decorated, en suite and combining quality antiques with modern art & furnishings, to ensure a stylish yet comfortable stay. The adjoining cottage was fully renovated in 2021 and offers a slice of modern luxury with a super king bed, spacious living/dining area, fully fitted kitchenette for self-catering, and free-standing bath with separate walk-in shower. Dogs are also welcome to stay in the cottage, which has its own enclosed garden, with dog beds and treats for furry friends.

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.
