Thyme

The Village Escape

Southrop Manor Estate, Gloucestershire GL7 3NX

Thyme is not a hotel but a beautiful hamlet of restored historic buildings – a kind of village within a village, in the heart of the Cotswolds. Spread across a cluster of beautifully restyled cottages and barns, with a spring water pool and tennis court, Thyme offers luxurious comfort with a village community atmosphere. Forage your way through the fragrant garden kitchen, immerse yourself in seasonal cooking classes at the on-site cookery school or even try your hand at floristry.

Thyme’s cookery school in the main hotel, a gorgeous 17th century farmhouse, guides guests on a journey from planting, growing, cooking and, finally, dining. All the produce is sourced from trusted local producers with a substantial amount grown in Thyme’s own garden and farm.

For those looking for a less hands on culinary experience, there are also a wide range of excellent dining options all championing a strong farm-to-table ethos. The Swan acts as a kind of family friendly gastropub, The Ox Barn offers a more sophisticated seasonal menu while The Baa, an old lambing shed converted into a chic bar, is the ideal destination to indulge in homemade kombucha or even an imaginative cocktail. An authentic country village experience with all the comforts of a luxury hotel.
