Previously the private home of internationally renowned garden designer, Rosemary Verey, this golden-stone 17th century manor house sits resplendent amidst its lovingly cultivated, landscaped gardens.
Today it is a contemporary and stylish Cotswold hotel, where genteel country charm is cleverly combined with every luxurious creature comfort.
Each generously sized room in the main building has been uniquely designed and furnished with a garden theme, while bathrooms have received equal attention and boast either a Jacuzzi, twin tub, Turkish bath or copper-fronted roll-top tub. Outside complete seclusion is provided at two idyllic hideaways: the Secret Garden Suite and the rustic-chic Potting Shed, which nestle in a garden dell near the hotel's cosy spa.

A chance to stay in a Cotswold stately home with the choice to dine on fresh produce from the vegetable garden at the hotel's Potager Restaurant or cross the road to the relaxed atmosphere, fine ales and open fires of the Village Pub.
Relax in the inspirational landscaped gardens or laze in the outdoor heated hydrotherapy pool before curling up in a pink leather armchair to watch a film in the hotel's private cinema.
For the more active, experience clay pigeon shooting and even a hot air balloon ride or a gliding trip. Alternatively, visit Cirencester's historic polo club to watch fast-paced polo at Cirencester Park during summer weekends.
