The Cotswold Plough, set in the village of Clanfield has bags of character and style and as a bonus, is a comfortable hotel, inn, and great restaurant combined.
Originally built as a wealthy Cotswold Wool Merchant’s house in the mid-16th century, there’s a definite feel of history and warmth about the place with flag-stoned and uneven floors, open fires, panelled walls, oriental rugs, cosy rooms and mullioned windows.
The Cotswold Plough has been welcoming guests for the past ten years and the friendly and knowledgeable team have created a perfect place for locals, visitors, folk on business, wedding and private dining party guests to relax, celebrate, drink, eat and stay.
Eleven comfortable and stylish bedrooms, all ensuite, include three garden rooms on the ground floor and two, spacious, four-poster rooms. Each has WiFi, flat-screen TV, trays of tea, coffee and biscuits. Staff go out of their way to make sure all is well and comfortable especially if travelling with children.
Eat in the bar or restaurant with a great menu and well stocked cellar. If you fancy mixing your own gin, having a taster, or treat someone to a special tutored session, you can here as The Cotswold Plough has its own Gin Pantry.
Wake up to a hearty Cotswold breakfast with toast, croissants, local jams and honey. Creamy porridge, full cooked breakfast with bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, the works; maybe plump for smoked kippers, or perhaps waffles with syrup.
Rooms lead out to the gardens outside. The front terrace with tables and large parasols is just perfect for sitting out with a glass in hand, a few nibbles – time to dither over the lunch or evening menu, or generally while away the moment.
