About The earliest fabric of the Hare And Hounds originates from the first years of the 18th century, when it was constructed as a farmhouse. Further parts were subsequently added and others enhanced in the early 20th century, all of which match the original and traditional style of the farmhouse building. You will find the hotel right on the edge of the beautiful village that gives its name to the famous Westonbirt Arboretum. Today, the hotel is operated by the Cotswold Inns and Hotels group, who purchased the building in 2008. A renovation transformed the interior into the homely, traditional-yet-modern state that it enjoys today. The Cotswolds Inns and Hotel group own other venues across the Outstanding Area of Natural Beauty, including The Swan Hotel, The Bear of Rodborough, The Manor House Hotel and The Bay Tree Hotel.
