Barnsley House

Barnsley House

*****

One of the most stylish country-house hotels, Gloucestershire's Barnsley House is an imposing grade II-listed manor-house within 11 acres of grounds, designed by former owner Rosemary Verey, legendary gardener, designer and writer. The owners have been on a mission to chuck out the chintz, but have done so with the utmost respect for original features, adding a contemporary spa and seamlessly blending the old with the new. The muted tones of the traditional paints make a perfect backdrop to the B&B Italia square-backed swivel armchairs.

Highlights:

  • Exceptional contemporary spa with hydrotherapy pool

  • Glorious Rosemary Verey gardens and Cotswolds countryside

  • Fabulous Italian-influenced cuisine using home-grown produce

Smith extra

A Barnsley House champagne cocktail each – or a glass of champagne in the Village Pub across the road – on each night of your stay

Dining information

Restaurant:

The secret of the Potager’s super-fresh Modern European dishes is home-grown vegetables, salad leaves and herbs plucked straight from the kitchen garden (when you see zucchini soup and deep-fried courgette flowers on the same menu, it’s easy to tell what’s ripe for the picking). Breakfast, 7.30am–10.30am (noon for room service). Tables are wooden-topped, linen napkins are rosemary-sprig-topped, and the general feel is relaxed and comfortable.

Top table:

Table 4, in the bay window.
