It’s charming, it’s luxurious, it’s an elegant country house hotel in the Cotswolds you won’t want to leave.
In fact, it’s like the home of a good friend with extremely good manners and taste. You’re beckoned in, offered something lovely to drink then served a sumptuous meal. You stay the weekend, take in the delightful surroundings, explore the village and head back to the friend’s country house in time for a tea, which you acknowledge is the best you’ve had in some time.
Seated near the fire you take a moment to yourself and recognise life is indeed good.
This is Buckland Manor.
Part of the AA Hotel Group of the Year 2017-2018, Buckland Manor (Relais & Châteaux) is a little more than a two hour drive from London on the via M40 and A40. If you’re looking for a retreat away from city life or want to tour the Cotswolds, this elegant manor house is the perfect landing spot.
For an American like me, my stay at Buckland Manor was everything I love about England under one roof.
The nearby village of Broadway is considered by many to be the most beautiful in the Cotswolds.
You’ll be pleased to know that Shakespeare’s, Stratford-upon-Avon, is only a half hour by car.
Make a day of it and return to Buckland Manor in time for dinner.
Expect to dress for the memorable culinary experience that awaits.
I give high marks for precision, detail and expertise.
