The Slaughters Manor House, Lower Slaughter, Cotswolds: save from 39% on two-night stays
What we love...
This gracious honey-stone property looks like a classic Cotswold retreat, but step inside and there's a contemporary vibe. It's a hybrid venue with the relaxing charm of a country house and the zing of a boutique hotel. If you're one for billiards, a slick cocktail bar and beautifully presented British cuisine, this is the place for you. Couples, families and small groups all come for the idyllic setting and famously pretty villages and you can escape the crowds in the five-acre grounds.
Save a minimum of 39% on a two-night stay in a luxurious suite, with a three-course dinner in the restaurant on the first night and a cooked breakfast both days.
Two nights in a luxurious suite from £250pp*
- Two nights' luxury accommodation
- Three-course dinner on the first evening
- Daily full English and continental breakfast
For a spectacularly pretty stroll, head to Upper Slaughter village about a mile away, and the celebrated Cotswold village of Stow on the Wold is also a few miles north of the hotel.
Set in the midst of the irresistable Cotswolds countryside, a short drive from Cheltenham.
