    What a beautiful little hotel. Attended a family wedding and everything about it was very special. The hotel was decorated and looked after to a really high standard, contemporary with a wonderful view across the stream and a quick walk out takes you into lovely footpaths across the Cotswolds countryside. We had a great family room and the staff were more than helpful even serving up a different dinner for my son at the wedding meal when he declared he didn't like the adult option! Would return for a romantic weekend with hubby!
