A rustic Cotswolds stay at a renovated, 15th-century coaching inn with AA Rosette-awarded British dining and charming, classically-styled rooms

Blending English country style with classic touches, The Lion Inn offers an elegant yet honest and stress-free break in the quaint Cotswolds town of Winchcombe, a 20-minute drive from Cheltenham and just moments from Sudeley Castle. A 15th-century coaching inn renovated to high modern standards whilst preserving its authenticity, this Epicurean Collection member offers an idyllic getaway brimming with endless boutique charm.

Without doubt the property's stand-out features, the bar and dining room are a confidently rustic affair, with old wood tables and chairs, stone walls and floors, and a natural palette providing the best back-drop for an AA Rosette-awarded menu - don't forget to cosy up in the snug or take your drink out into the beautiful garden on sunnier days.

A sound night's sleep is to be had in one of the eight en-suite guest rooms, too: featuring exposed stone and wood features, as well as a soft colour scheme with the occasional pastel pop, these rooms are perfectly quiet and calming havens, each with their own individual character and plenty plush furnishings. With all this, it's no surprise The Lion Inn has scooped up a host of recommendations and awards, including a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, four AA Silver Stars and New Pub of the Year title at the 2017 Good Pub Guide Awards.

Excellent for
Country Relaxing Scenery UK and Ireland


Each of the eight guest rooms brim with individual style, yet all offer clutter-free, refined and classically beautiful decor to complement characterful stone walls and exposed wood beams. Expect a pop of pastel colour here and quirky period features there. All rooms come with Wi-Fi access, Bramley bath amenities, high-quality linen and power showers, while bathrobes and tea and coffee facilities are available on request.


You'll find an innovative British menu that's nothing short of tempting at the restaurant, where AA Rosette-awarded food comes as standard. Expect seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients in creatively-presented dishes, such as mackerel escabeche, butternut squash tarte tatin, and braised blade of beef Bourguignon. You'll find a pizza and sandwiches menu, plus an unmissable Sunday lunch and a rather extensive wine list. Head to the bar to indulge with an espresso martini or Winchombe Way cocktail - a mix of fresh mint, sugar syrup and whisky.


Situated in the quiet and quintessentially English town of Winchcombe, The Lion Inn is ideally situated in the Cotswolds, for all the natural pursuits you could dream of. Winchcombe Antiques Centre is four minutes from the inn, while Sudeley Castle's gorgeous structure and maze gardens are a 15-minute stroll away. Further afield, Broadway, Cheltenham and its famous racecourse are all no more than 20 minutes away by car.
