Property Description

The Cotswold Plough Hotel, Clanfield, is a perfect example of a 16th Century, stylish yet informal hotel in the Cotswolds countryside. Located no more than 90 minutes from Oxford, Bath, London and Bristol The Plough is a great base to explore the English Countryside and Cities. The hotel itself is located in Clanfield, a quaint Oxfordshire Village with a touch Cotswold charm. Bampton, home to Downton Abbey is right on the door step and Burford Town is just 15 minutes’ drive away which is the gate way to exploring the Cotswolds. With many other great attractions nearby you can chose to relax or explore. With 11 en-suite bedrooms, restaurant & bar serving local ales, private dining rooms, open fires and sunshine terrace we are able to offer something for everyone all year round. The hotel was bought by the present owners in July 2005. It was stripped of its many layers of 1970's chintz to unveil many original features including, stone mullion windows, fireplaces, stone and parquet floors, beams and panelling The Hotel has an idyllic charm that allows guests to relax in comfort. Our 60 seater restaurant offers seasonal mouth-watering dishes. All our dining rooms can be offered for private functions and weddings and have their own unique character to allow you to entertain friend’s family or colleagues in beautiful surroundings. In addition to this we are able to host exclusive use reunions, as well as syndicate meetings and corporate fun days. Our most unique offering is our Gin Pantry, with over 100 individual Gins and incomparable knowledge of these drinks and their accompaniments. Why not come and see for yourself?
