Buckland Manor, Cotswolds

Buckland Manor

One of the most charming country house hotels in the Cotswolds, Buckland Manor is set in a picturesque village and dates back to the mid-13th century. Although much changed and updated, it retains the charm of a medieval mansion with stone fireplaces, leaded windows and elaborate wood paneling. All 15 rooms are unique in size and decor and offer views over the Malvern Hills or the gardens and croquet lawn.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main dining room, and afternoon tea can be taken in the stately lounge or on the terrace. This luxurious rural retreat is well located for visiting the Cotswolds but equally good for enjoying country pursuits such as horse-riding, clay pigeon shooting and bucolic walks.

Location

The hotel is located within its own expansive grounds just over two miles from the bustling town of Broadway. It is perfectly situated for exploring the main villages and highlights of the Cotswolds and has convenient access to many walks along the Cotswold Way. It takes about an hour and a half to drive from Oxford, and just half an hour from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Food and drink

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the hotel’s award-winning restaurant which has a strong focus on British cuisine made using local, seasonal ingredients with a modern twist. The wood-paneled lounge with its rich fabrics and historic character is a delightful place to relax and enjoy afternoon tea.

Families

The hotel doesn’t accept children younger than ten years old.

Facilities and activities

The hotel offers a range of facilities on site, including croquet, boules and tennis, however, staff are also able to organize horse riding and clay pigeon shooting on request. Boots are available to borrow should you wish to follow one of the many walking trails from the grounds or visit the town of Broadway.

Accessibility

There are four rooms on the ground floor, one of which is suitable for guests with a disability. As there are six steps to the main reception, wheelchair access is via a ramp at the back of the hotel.

Our opinion

This is one of the most historic and quintessentially English manors in the rural Cotswolds, offering a true home-from-home experience in the heart of the countryside but still close to the towns and villages this region is known for.
