One of the most elegant country house hotels in the Cotswolds, Buckland Manor is tucked away in a tranquil corner of the village of Buckland, next to the old village church. Set in ten acres of grounds, which blend seamlessly into the village, the beautiful manor house is unmarked by the passing of time; it is an idyllic setting from which to enjoy an exceptionally warm welcome, tantalising menus lovingly crafted from the ‘market garden of England’ and breath-taking Cotswold scenery.
In the heart of the Cotswold tourist trail, Buckland Manor is only a few minutes from the much loved town of Broadway, with its pretty high street and eclectic shops. Staying in Buckland you are well placed to discover the wider area of the Cotswolds, Oxfords dreaming spires and the home of Shakespeare, Stratford upon Avon.
The Manor dates back to the thirteenth century, first mentioned in 600 AD, when the land was owned by the Abbey of Gloucester. It was later recorded in the Domesday Book.
The village of Buckland is thought to have the oldest rectory in England, which stands next to the Manor, with an impressive timbered hall that dates from the 15th Century. John Wesley preached in the church of St. Michael, the east window of which contains some splendid 15th Century glass, judged by some to be the best in the Cotswolds and reputed to have come from Hailes Abbey at the Dissolution. William Morris attended church services here when he came to Buckland in the 19th Century and was so impressed by the glass that he personally paid for its re-leading.
The 15 bedrooms at Buckland Manor are luxuriously appointed and provide the highest standards of comfort, all individually furnished with antiques and fine fabrics. Naturally all come with crisp white linen, plumped up pillows and luxurious beds to guarantee that perfect night’s slumber.
Crafted by Head Chef, Will Guthrie, menus feature fresh local produce from the neighbouring Vale of Evesham, affectionately known as the market garden of England. Fresh herbs are grown in the Manor’s own grounds and, as you would expect in a house of this heritage, there is a magnificent wine cellar.
