Secret passageways and a priest's hole testify to the age of this 16th-century building, where the mullioned windows, original stonework, and log fires in winter are tastefully balanced by smart, contemporary furnishings in the public areas. Bedrooms, displaying the same mix of modern and antique, come with good bathrooms with quality toiletries. The Mulberry restaurant serves an adventurous four- or eight-course English menu, while the Beagle Bar, in a bright, modern
conservatory overlooking the lovely garden, has cheaper eats.

Conveniently located to many quaint Cotswold towns and nice for the average local price, but the room was nothing too special. Food and service were good.
