This modern British pub with rooms is no ordinary inn, it is one of the Cotswolds most charming venues to eat, sleep and drink in and offers guests a unique experience, no matter how long the stay.
The building was given a new lease of life when in 2013 work began to revitalise its old bones by injecting a contemporary design and feel to the venue, while also ensuring its character and original features were maintained.
In the main bar, the original stone mullioned windows have been retained, as well as its low ceilings and grand cosy fireplaces.
Moving through into the dining room, guests will be greeted with light and space as well as an open kitchen to view the hard-working chefs preparing the delicious meals.
You’re unlikely to find anything too exotic on your plate, which makes perfect sense as the chefs want to showcase the produce from the local surroundings. So, expect the very best British fayre, packed full of flavour and passion.
Now, onto the rooms. Built to combine elements of raw rural simplicity with touches of “unapologetic” luxury, guests will be in heaven on seeing their bedroom for the night.
Each has been individually designed and show exposed stone as well as re-used oak beams, as well as natural furnishings and accessories.
Much of what you’ll experience at the Rabbit is guided by the principles that govern the Daylesford Estate, which the venue is a part of. For over 40 years, the estate has ensured, where possible, everything is sourced from local suppliers and is organic where possible, from the ingredients in the kitchen to the handmade horsehair mattresses in the bedrooms. Here, you’ll truly be eating and sleeping the landscape.
Of course, outside the venue the stunning Cotswolds countryside awaits your exploration. From wide open green spaces to woodlands and stunning chocolate box villages, this is a very special and unique part of the UK.
