The Lords of the Manor is a 17th-century country house hotel in the heart of the Cotswolds. Built in 1650, this former rectory stands in eight acres of secluded gardens and parkland in Upper Slaughter, one of the Cotswolds' prettiest and most unspoilt villages. Comfortable surroundings, big roaring fires, beautifully tended, well-loved gardens and croquet on the lawn create an idyllic setting. The restaurant at the Lords of the Manor is one of the major gourmet dining destinations in the Cotswolds, and many of the ingredients are sourced from producers in nearby villages. The extraordinary cellar has a collection of over 190 bins to satisfy the most discerning of palates. The bedrooms are a haven of luxurious comfort and have been tastefully preserved with a real sense of style and character. For leisure activities, guests can enjoy a game of croquet or try their hands at coarse fishing on the lake. Riding, golf and game and clay pigeon shooting can be arranged locally. The Lords of the Manor is also ideally situated to explore many of the honey-stoned villages which have made the Cotswolds a notable area for a truly memorable stay.
