A quintessential 17th-century country village pub in the Cotswolds, with eight beautiful cosy rooms and excellent food – includes breakfast and two-course dinner

Accommodation


The rural village of Kelmscott was once described by William Morris as ‘a heaven on earth’, and many today might well agree. Kelmscott is a beautiful Cotswolds hamlet to relax and unwind in, and yet not feel completely isolated. Start the day with a fulsome breakfast served in the restaurant, and then take a walk up the Thames Path and admire the breath-taking views, or venture to one of the many nearby sites, including Kelmscott Manor and Buscot Park.

Like most 17th-century properties, the bedroom ceilings are low and footprints are compact, but these spaces have more charm in their little window seats than most houses have in their entire floorplans. Each room is warm and inviting with individual character, and while the overall style is modern, the rooms retain authentic appeal and a charming Cotswolds feel.

Dining


If you wanted to, you could eat and drink from dawn 'til dusk here. The breakfast menu ranges from homemade breads to eggs cooked to order, while the lunch menu boasts a range of delectable dishes. To keep you going after that, the bar offers snacks to nibble on, accompanied by the beverage of your choosing, all before indulging in a delightful dinner set in the atmospheric candlelit restaurant.

Showcasing the best locally sourced, seasonal produce on a menu of modern British comfort cooking, the menu at The Plough Inn is a considerate mix of pub classics and more creative dishes.

Location

The rural village of Kelmscott was once described by William Morris as ‘a heaven on earth’, and many today might well agree. Kelmscott is a beautiful Cotswolds hamlet to relax and unwind in, and yet not feel completely isolated. A Cotswolds gem, this charming village is perfectly situated to take advantage of the many things on offer locally.

Walking and cycling routes lead right from the door of The Plough Inn, with a magnificent stretch of the Thames Path just moments away, boasting stunning views from every direction. Oxford, Cheltenham and Cirencester are approximately a 25-minute drive away, while the picturesque Cotswolds towns and villages of Burford, Lechlade, Fairford, Cirencester, Bibury and Filkins are all within close reach.

The Kelmscott Manor, the former home of William Morris, is also just a stone’s throw away. A must-see for those visiting Kelmscott, the Grade I-listed farmhouse was built around 1600 and sits adjacent to the River Thames. It’s open to the public every Wednesday and Saturday, from 1 April to 31 October, from 11am to 5pm.

Good to know

This is a very rural area with limited public transport, so it's best to arrive by car. There’s free on-site parking.

The restaurant doesn’t serve food on Sunday or Monday evenings. We recommend dining at sister property The Five Alls at Filkins, just a 10-minute drive away.

Pets are welcome.

We like

  • The enchanting and peaceful countryside setting – Kelmscott is full of character and very relaxing
  • An easy romantic weekender - bring bikes, or go walking along the Thames Path, then enjoy a wonderful dinner in the restaurant
  • This place holds appeal all year round; spring and summer are idyllic as the garden blooms and the sun shines, but the pub and restaurant are cosy havens during the colder months too

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
