The Swan

This 16th-century timbered inn, complete with inglenook fireplaces, reclaimed wooden floors and a large central bar, has become the latest in Sam and Georgie Pearman’s new Country Creatures collection of delightful and stylish rural establishments. You’ll find seven dashingly pretty bedrooms and a family cottage, all balancing comfort and luxury in equal measure, with antique and modern art pieces, natural linens, velvets and printed fabrics, and Georgie’s 100 Acres Apothecary products in the bathrooms. In the charming dining room, exposed timber, Cotswold stone, striking Lewis & Wood wallpaper and art by Keith Tyson create an intimate setting, while the garden terrace has firepits and painted wooden planters. Expect the best of British and European produce from head chef Dan Smith. Tuck into barbequed native prawns with Chipping Norton nduja and garlic butter, followed by lamb rump with potato fondant, and then a selection of local cheeses. Breakfast is a delight, with carve-yourself ham, cheese, fresh loaves and fruit compotes laid out on the central bar to help yourself to.
