The Rectory Hotel Wiltshire

“Stylish, informal listed period house, renovated by ambitious owners into a mellow bolthole. Each of the 12 rooms is spacious, light & elegant – a blend of antique and contemporary. A relaxed retreat & a perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds with an excellent restaurant and large pool. ”

“The Rectory is an English country house with understated flair set in a Georgian building providing both elegance and comfort. You'll find time slows a little while relaxing in the gardens or beside the pool when the weather allows. You can eat in the hotel restaurant (the chef prides himself on using local, organic or foraged produce) or pop down to the nearby country pub - The Potting Shed - also owned by The Rectory.”

They say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
I think we offer a great escape from the pressures of daily life, yet we are under 2 hours from London, I think the hotel is beautifully designed with great quirky bits and pieces around the place, the food is wonderful and yet none of it is too 'designery' or over the top. The service is warm and friendly rather than starchy and too polished. I also think the pub across the road is a great draw for people, its effectively getting 2 venues in one!

What is there to do in the area?
Its the Cotswolds so there is a weatlh of stuff to see from the lovely market towns of Tetbury, Cirencester & Malmesbury all within 10 minutes to the stunning countryside. We also have Westonbirt about 15 minutes away and are 40 minutes from both Bath and Bristol - fascinating cities to visit for the day. Yet we are also well placed to explore the classic Cotswold villages to the North of Cirencester.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
We offer a continental breakfast buffet with cereals, homemade musili and homemade granola, along with local youghurts and a lovely fresh fruit salad, and daily poached fruits. We also have pastries and homemade banana muffins. Then we also offer a range of cooked breakfast items from a full Cotswold breakfast, with Wiltshire back bacon and old spot sausages, to kippers, salmon and eggs, local mushrooms on toast or just boiled eggs and dippers - something for everyone!

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We are open for dinner every day - with a fantastic British menu or you can have lunch or dinner at our dining pub across the road - The Potting Shed - Good pub guide National Pub of the Year 2012



What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
That we are a good value, friendly and personable small hotel, we are a great hard working team who are committed to ensuring your readers have a great break, and that they leave feeling happy and refreshed and hopefully full of good food!”

The Rectory Hote

"It’s now an arty oasis with striking paintings, clever lighting and funky garden sculptures. Owners Jonathan Barry (ex-Hotel du Vin) and Julian Muggridge (an art dealer with a superb eye) conjure the atmosphere of an Edwardian country house party, with a contemporary edge added by the flamboyant flourishes of the décor."
