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.

    Now the dust has settled following Rebecca and Jamie’s wedding, my wife and I have had time to reflect on the whole occasion. From the day that Rebecca met with you and decided to have her wedding at the Hare and Hounds Hotel, everything has been handled with outstanding professionalism and a complete understanding to what was required.

    The actual wedding day was just about perfect from start to finish. The guy who seemed to be orchestrating everything was superb, his attention to detail was outstanding. But this was not just about one or two people, all of the staff involved at the hotel played a significant part in our enjoyment of this occasion. From reception, to Bar, Waiters, Housekeeping and Chefs/kitchen staff are all a credit to the hotel. Also, the hotel is magnificent, the décor, furnishing, seating, rooms and cottages in the grounds are stunning. So many people came up to me and commented on what a wonderful venue for a wedding.

    So, I would just like to thank you and everyone who was involved in what I can only describe as one of the best run hotels I have stayed in for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile, wonderful. I would be grateful if you could make sure my comments are passed on to everyone concerned at the hotel.
