Your country retreat in the Cotswolds, stylish interior and wonderful food, close to Burford's lovely shops, great walks all around

Escape from London to find the stylish Swan waiting with the warm welcome of a country retreat. Inside, all is comfort and calm. A log burner greets you in the generous porch where umbrellas and coats can be left before you head for the sparkling, well-stocked bar. Turn right under the attractive beams to a snug informal dining area with big vases of fresh flowers, and chairs upholstered in velvet and brocade. Turn left for a private dining room, as elegant as a Georgian parlour, perfect for a family get-together. At the back is a big courtyard, cleverly planted, with a fire pit and neat little shed-turned-bar. Tuck into the simple, delicious menu - lobster caesar salad, veggie and non-veggie burgers, the freshest fish - our chicken kiev with mash and parsley sauce was full of flavour and texture. Rest, restore, and explore the Cotswolds.
