A glamorous, boutique restaurant with rooms in the historic market town of Shipston On Stour
There are countless walks and cycling trails that are perfect for family adventures in the great outdoors, or even a romantic day out. Meandering lanes weave among old market towns and sleepy villages where time seems to stand still. Wander between chocolate box cottages and half timbered buildings that have been beautifully preserved, standing on the edge of babbling brooks and picture postcard scenes. As you explore the rural idylls, the waft of freshly baked bread from the local bakeries mingles with the unmistakeable scent of the countryside. Why not idle away the days ambling around local art galleries or stop and watch the world go by at one of the pavement cafes? Within the hotels, original features such as log fires, wooden floors and exposed beams evoke a romantic nostalgia that is a reminder of the country’s fascinating past. Delve into the history of each place and fall in love with the individual charms that make them so unique. From chic and boutique hotels to rustic and country house, there is a great range of styles and designs to choose from. However, there are a few things that all of these hotels do have in common; rooms are filled with the latest in technology, luxury toiletries and ever so comfy beds, and the hospitality is warm and welcoming.
Being enveloped by such wonderful landscapes, all of these hotels have excellent restaurants with food that excites the senses. Imaginatively crafted using fresh, seasonal ingredients, dishes never fail to impress discerning palates. Many of our hotels have Michelin star restaurants and AA Rosettes for their outstanding food, guaranteeing you an unforgettable dining experience.
