The Slaughters Country Inn is the perfect location for a country break where wellies, walks and unwinding are the order of the day.
At the heart of The Slaughters Country Inn, a comforting and relaxed dining experience awaits. This is the perfect place to enjoy a pie and a pint by the fireside, or a salad on the terrace in summer. The restaurant and bar offers delicious food, simply prepared, using the finest Cotswolds produce. The menu is complemented by a wide selection of local ales, showcasing the best the region has to offer. Set on the banks of the River Eye, The Slaughters Country Inn is surrounded by beautiful lawns and in summer the sun-drenched terrace is a popular place to enjoy lunch, dinner or afternoon tea.
Each of The Slaughters Country Inn's 31 guest rooms and charming cottages are designed to reflect the property’s unique character. With ancient wooden beams, roll top baths and views of the picturesque village, each room is individual in design and seamlessly blends the traditional features of the oldest parts of the house with contemporary design. Naturally all come with crisp white linen, plumped up pillows and sumptuous beds to guarantee that perfect night’s slumber.
The six characterful cottages are situated in the courtyard, just a few steps from the main building. These sophisticated cottages are split into two floors; generous bedroom upstairs and comfortable living area, complete with sofabed downstairs.
