Superb short break . Excellent accommodation and warm friendly staff. Food excellent especially the highly recommended pies. They lived up to expectations.! The sparkling afternoon tea was a nice bonus and welcome after a day out in the rain. There was so much we could not finish it all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Simply put, we love food. Not just for what it is, but for the experience that accompanies it. Homely surroundings, great company and conversation,attentive waiters, who become friends and of course fine wines from around the world. After a evening of gastro food delights, gourmet pies and laughter infront of the open fire retire to our courtyard of boutique individually designed rooms and drift off, to wake up to the sounds, sights and smells of the idyllic gloucestershire countryside. Followed of course by a hearty breakfast and maybe a stroll up the majestic May Hill ... more   less
