Our Inspector's view

Built from golden Cotswold stone, this comfortable manor house dates from the 17th century, and offers a stylish 21st-century interpretation of country living. Wonderful period features and the delightful formal gardens, rub shoulders with modern decorative touches and pale, soothing colours. The elegant dining room is an airy, light-filled space with nicely spaced, linen-clad tables. Dishes are often picture-perfect explorations of flavour and texture, maybe starting with dressed Cornish crab, served with lemon verbena and cucumber, followed by Herdwick lamb, braised gem lettuce, mint and black garlic. Finish with macerated English strawberries, yoghurt sorbet and long pepper.

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.
