THE VILLAGE of Southrop is in a highly desirable corner of the Cotswolds, with a fair celeb-resident count and popular villages such as Bibury and Burford nearby. Allow time to explore the Southrop Estate, the Norman church and wildflowers alongside the River Leach – a great escape-from-it all destination.
Southrop tips from the hotel
Our cookery school offers a wide programme through the year and specialises in bespoke classes for family celebrations.
The Thames rises in the Cotswolds and nearby Lechlade (good for antiques) is its highest navigable point. Shelley was inspired by the churchyard. Also by the river, William Morris's Kelmscott Manor is surrounded by beautiful grounds including dovecotes, a meadow and a stream.
Top shopping tip – Cotswold Woollen Weavers at Filkins has supplied many leading fashion houses and makes a top quality Cotswold plaid.
Our rooms, cottages and houses are nestled around the magnificently restored barns that are at the heart of Thyme, a place with good food, warm hospitality and a love of the land at its heart.
For a very special occasion take exclusive use of Thyme House or the whole estate.
