A friend and I had booked the Gin mixing experience here and we stayed in the hotel, with our wives, to get the best of the event. We ate in the restaurant and had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. Worth every penny. Breakfast was amazing.

Stopped off and sat in the beer garden with the dog after a lovely walk. Staff couldn't have been more helpful providing iced water for the dog and making us very welcome. Lovely beer garden and a wide choice of specialist gins.

The hotel is perfectly located to explore landmark Cotswold towns, the rolling countryside and the Dreaming Spires of Oxford.

The Cotswold Plough has 11 elegant, confortable and spacious en-suite bedrooms, a restaurant and a bar serving local ales, quality everyday dining options, open fires and a sunshine terrace for Al fresco dining. The hotel offers something for everyone all year round, with an idyllic charm that allows guests to relax in comfort and there is free Wifi throughout. The restaurant serves an a la cate menu of seasonal mouth-watering dishes. Whereas the bar offers a more traditional British menu and the hotel's most unique offering: a Gin Pantry with over 150 individual gins and an incomparable knowledge of these drinks and their accompaniments.
