“Long before a 'back to basics' approach to cooking became trendy in the UK, the fertile Cotswolds was already renowned for its diverse produce and the use of locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients.” Lonely Planet

Why we love it

The Cotswolds has earned itself a well-deserved reputation as a foodie destination hotspot. The picturesque stretch of hilly land crisscrossed with winding country lanes and dotted with thatch-roofed, picture-perfect villages, is one of the finest places in the UK to embrace innovative Modern British cuisine. From Gloucester Old Spot pork to Stinking Bishop cheese, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offers the perfect gastronomic staycation for lovers of all things local.

Description

Having upheld the values of farm-to-fork cooking throughout its regional history, the Cotswolds is now eagerly embracing the current food revolution – championed by British chefs such as Jamie Oliver and Rick Stein – and its many celebrated dining establishments are pushing Modern British cuisine to new levels of creativity. The Cotswolds’ draw for foodies includes a great variety of local cheeses, meats, fruit, vegetables, honey, fish, ales, beer and more, found either at their respective sources or at the many farmers’ markets and food festivals held in the region throughout the year.

Enjoy exploring the Cotswold’s bounty from the comfort of the Rectory Hotel. Situated on three acres of beautiful grounds, the 12-room former rectory is a cosy bolthole combining an eclectic mix of antique furnishings and contemporary design. The epitome of relaxed Cotswold’s living, The Rectory boasts walled gardens, a heated outdoor pool, open log fires, floral armchairs and crisp Egyptian linen.

First stop on the foodie trail is The Rectory’s own restaurant, The Potting Shed. Headed up by talented British chef, Peter Fairclough, The Potting Shed’s philosophy is to focus on a creative, British seasonal cooking accompanied by the finest quality British beverages, including local ales, wines and port. Past dishes have included ‘Smoked Pigeon and Pheasant Terrine, Watercress, Pickled Blackberries’ and Grilled Beef Skirt, Crispy Bone Marrow, Spinach, Oyster Mushrooms & Fennel’. The menu changes monthly to reflect the best of seasonal produce, which is locally sourced and, where possible, grown in the restaurant’s two-acre on-site vegetable patch, herb garden and orchard.

The following day, travel to the beautiful village of Tetbury before enjoying lunch just three rolling miles away in The Conservatory at Calcot Manor. Designed with relaxation in mind, The Calcot serves delicious, seasonal food intertwined with Cotswold herbs and ingredients. The historic space has a contemporary design with elegant French doors throughout, stunning skylights, natural stone, artistic chandeliers and plush cream furnishings – a space to really unwind. Expects dishes on the lunch menu such as ‘Truffled Croxton brie and Waldorf salad’ and ‘Panfried chicken breast, roast Jerusalem artichoke and sautéed leeks’ accompanied by a simple, well-crafted wine list that promotes high-quality world and local wines.
