The beautifully appointed bedroom overlooking the river was quiet and elegant. The little duck in the bathroom and the teddy bear on the bed were both unusual additions. Breakfast was good. The manager was very helpful regarding the trout fishing requirements.

It is rare that you stay in a place and everything is perfect, well very nearly perfect. The family room had a large room for my wife and I and a good sized room for the kids. It was classy clean and lovely views. Then we went to the pub for dinner and had one of the nicest meals we...

Stand on the little bridge over a real-life babbling brook and look around at the rolling green hills, dotted with sheep and horses, surrounded by stone houses and winding narrow roads. This is the setting for the Swan Inn. Dinner was lovely and our room was comfortable and clean. A minor drainage, plumbing issue the morning we were leaving, but...

The Swan Inn is a NOT roughing it. The rooms are modern (but without AC) and clean. We slept with our window open in The Stable and the only bother was the rooster was up 30 minutes before our alarm. Food is excellent. Management is friendly and helpful. Go enjoy the Cotswold area. The Inn is on a hub to...

Great pick for a relaxing weekend away from life's stresses. Peaceful, clean and comfy rooms away from main pub mean completely uninterrupted night's sleep. Easy to park right outside. Warm, cosy, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Friendly bantams in the garden to greet you. Pub is very countryfide and packed in the evenings but you're guaranteed a table...

We recently stayed for an impromptu evening and meal away in a lovely part of the world, taking advantage of their dinner, bed and breakfast offer. We would certainly recommend it, it's a lovely country inn in a beautiful area for walking/cycling with comfortable rooms, above average pub restaurant food served by attentive and friendly staff. The historical links with...

This place is faultless. We booked a three night stay at The Swann in January just to get away from the hustle and bustle of London. This was the perfect place to spend our time. Set in the middle of no where, with huge open fields and a river for perfect walks, this place exceeded our expectations. We stayed in...

This really has to be one of the best places I've visited. The staff (a Transylvanian man and his Swedish girlfriend) who ran it were beyond helpful and friendly and made our stay one to remember. It helps that it was so hot we could make use of the lovely garden (with lots of lovely bantham chickens running around) and...

We visited for dinner while on a weekend trip to the Cotswolds. Google maps said that it was ten miles from our hotel. It didn't tell us that it was down pitch black single track roads - not much fun on a snowy winters evening. We arrived to roaring fires and a lovely atmosphere. Menu wasn't large but there was...

A Wednesday lunchtime birthday treat. My friend booked lunch as a surprise and as usual the Swan did not disappoint. The staff are lovely and attentive without being all over you. The food was truly inspired and we sat by the roaring log fire and enjoyed every minute. It gets so busy I recommend you book.
