Contemporary Country House With The Cotswolds Warmest Welcome
Set high on an escarpment overlooking the Severn Vale this 45 bedroom country house hotel lies between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and Regency Cheltenham. Hatton Court provides the right balance between traditional hotel service and all the benefits you would expect from a contemporary hotel. The Tara Restaurant is renowned locally. It is an ideal place from which to explore the Cotswolds.
Hatton Court is a reassuring size; not large and impersonal, nor too small.
As a former splendid Cotswold home the feeling is of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand
Nothing is hurried. The reception is very much a lounge, with leather sofas, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush.
The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service, is complimented by the thought that has gone into creating the Tara restaurant.
Warm soft furnishings balance the picture windows that allow you to take in the broad horizons beneath the escarpment to the Malvern Hills and the Severn Estuary.
The peace of the surrounding countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a goodnights sleep ready for another day exploring the Cotswolds.
The Tara Restaurant at Hatton Court
With large panoramic windows that take full advantage of the breathtaking views of the Severn Vale and the distant Malvern Hills, the spectacular location of The Tara Restaurant is matched with genuinely warm hospitality, fine food and an extensive selection of wines.
In summer months you can enjoy alfresco dining on the terraces or just simply enjoy an aperitif and canapés, coffee and petit fours, or a glass of champagne as the sun slips behind the distant hills. During the winter, log fires roar in the reception and lounge, the perfect spot to indulge in a fine Vintage Port or aged Cognac.
Fully refurbished in late 2009 the natural colours and soft lighting make a relaxing environment for friends and relations to enjoy each other’s company. Private dining facilities are available in the equally well appointed Cotswold Room.
The Tara Restaurant is open every day for hearty English Breakfasts, Morning Coffee and Cakes, Lunch, gloriously indulgent Afternoon Teas and candlelit Dinners. Traditional delicious roasts served every Sunday Lunch. Non residents are particularly welcome.

You can lie in bed at this romantic hideaway and gaze out of the window over a rural scene that has hardly changed in a century. The Byre at Quercus Bluff is a unique holiday cottage that has been created by its craftsman owner to provide a peaceful rustic retreat in the heart of the South Cotswolds countryside.
The Byre is approached via a long unmade track which leads down hill from the outskirts of Painswick to the peaceful pastures of Quercus Bluff farmstead. The former cow byre and adjoining barn (now the owner’s home) have been imaginatively converted using locally sourced materials, including felled oak from the farm’s woodland for the doors, window frames and roof timbers, and reclaimed flagstones from Sheepscombe Church for the floor .The hand crafted buildings have been featured in “Grand Designs” magazine (June 2004), as well as “English Country Interiors” and “The New Country Style England” books.
Three bedrooms and a vaulted living room are simply furnished with hand-crafted and rustic items, and all the rooms overlook the garden and valley beyond.
This is a place of peaceful solitude and privacy, a chance to enjoy the slower pace of life of a bygone age.
The living room has magnificent oak beams cut from trees found on the farm, and a long dining table carved from a huge oak tree by the owner, David Murray, a skilled carpenter and member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen. At one end of the room is a kitchen equipped in traditional style with an Aga, a Dutch airer, and a stone sink, while squashy armchairs are arranged around a wood burning stove.
Two double bedrooms, and a third room with bunk beds, provide for up to 4 adults and 2 children. The rooms are simply furnished, and all have uninterrupted views over the valley. A quirky shower room has a stone trough as a shower tray.
Double doors from the living room open onto the sheltered terrace with far-reaching views over the countryside. The fully enclosed garden is private and secluded, and is a perfect escape from the pressures of modern life. Cattle often graze the field beyond the garden, and buzzards may be seen soaring over the valley.
In the lower meadow is a wonderful picnic and camping area, with hand-crafted wooden furniture, a shallow pond which is home to ducks and dragon flies - and even an earth closet or “long drop”!
