Lords of the Manor, Upper Slaughter, Cotswolds
Set in a 17th-century manor house on the edge of an exquisite Cotswold village, Lords of the Manor is an appealingly traditional country house hotel. This is a place of crackling fires, long lawns, antiques and cosy nooks. The hotel glories in excellent food (particularly at The Atrium restaurant), impeccable old-school service and a magnificent garden. Prices here are slightly steep, even for the Cotswolds - guests tend to be a moneyed crew of city weekenders or weekday visitors on a treat of a break. They come to enjoy classic comfort and peace and quiet, although the lack of a spa might seem an oversight for a venue of this quality.
We love the pretty stroll to Lower Slaughter village about a mile away.
Lords of the Manor is next to the River Eye in the middle of the leafy Cotswolds AONB, a short walk from the sleepy village of Lower Slaughter and its traditional pubs.
By car: The hotel is 2 hours 15 mins from London, 1 hour 20 mins from Birmingham and 3 hours from Manchester. There is free parking on-site.
By train: London Paddington to Kingham station takes around 1 hour 20 mins. The hotel is a 20-minute taxi ride from the station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
Lords of the Manor is perfect for foodies, romantics and wedding parties. The entrance hall, with its fireplace and grandfather clock, is a highlight.
