The Swan Hotel, Bibury
An old stone cottage covered in creeping ivy, it’s one of the best boutique hotels for miles around and provides the perfect luxury country getaway. There are 18 individually designed bedrooms in the main house, each decked out in plush antique furniture, and in the courtyard you’ll find four garden cottage suites for larger parties. Enjoy a fresh cup of coffee from your in-suite Nespresso machine before filling your roll-top bath with Molton Brown bubbles or heading out to the garden to make the most of the hot tub. The bar, with its cosy open fire and squashy armchairs, is just the place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or two. With a great atmosphere and friendly staff, it’s one of the hottest spots in the Cotswolds.
