The village is tiny, the bar is lively, the food is delicious. The Cotswolds are at your feet and you’re encouraged not to lift a finger

This 18th-century malthouse has an appealing flagged bar that steps down to a smouldering fire in the snug… the perfect spot to enjoy the papers. In summer, spill into the garden where the view reaches five miles. Walkers drop by for a drink or Sunday lunch (with vegetarian and fish options); locals stay for acoustic evenings. The food here is a real draw: the kitchen churns its butter and bakes its bread and the chefs take pride in their inventive menus. Spoil yourself with the three-course Nest menu, or the more relaxed bar menu; the sommelier has put together a superb wine list. You’re looked after beautifully and the sense of comfort is enveloping. Visit nearby Burford, with its medieval three-arched bridge and lovely shops, and pretty little Stow-in-the-Wold.
