Overview

Recently renovated, this rambling 16th-century inn is now a stylish Cotswolds bolthole, close to Cheltenham and some of the Cotswold's most sought-after spots. With added wow factor and amazing attention to detail, the Frogmill boasts traditional beams and flagstones which complement more contemporary features and warm heritage hues.

There's a rustic-smart bar with large wooden tables, panelled walls and hop-strewn beams, and a relaxed dining area with rugs on bare boards, an eclectic mix of furniture, and a quirky décor with books, paintings, plants adorning walls, shelves and fireplaces. The Snug is a great chill-out space with sofas and easy chairs, table tennis, shuffleboard, and billiards, and the super front terrace, with its restored waterwheel and colour flower borders, is the place to relax when the sun shines. Modern British pub food, 28 fabulous bedrooms and the stunning Mill Room function space (perfect for weddings!) complete the rural picture.

The deluxe rooms have oodles of space, huge beds, double-sinks and freestanding tubs. Each room has been kitted out with home-from-home comforts to make guests feel as comfortable as possible: Feather & Black bed and mattress, Nespresso machine, Roberts radio, magazines along with plenty of indulgent Temple Spa Aromatherapy bathroom products.

Signature Room 8 oozes history and charm with a tiny door and steep staircase leading to a vaulted timbered room with fabulous bathroom and its own private roof terrace - a real surprise. If you're celebrating, then stay in the Suite and savour the queen size bed, the wood-burning stove, the well-stocked fridge, the double-ended tub in the vast bathroom and the private alfresco terrace.

Restaurant & bar

The kitchen at the Frogmill is passionate about using quality local produce and modern, British, seasonal menus are built around two essential pieces of kitchen kit: the Josper grill oven and the American smoker - which burns whisky barrel and hickory wood-chips, as well as smoking scallops, salmon, pork and tomatoes to perfection. Expect to find pub classics alongside excellent steaks, whole lobster, pork belly ribs and some great sharing dishes from the grill.

Beyond the traditional range of Brakspear ales on handpump, enjoy an impressive array of drinks. Look to the chalkboards for the choice of cocktails; there are plenty of boutique gins available including locally distilled Cotswold Gin and Silent Pool, as well as the craft bottled beer list. The short wine list favours France and there's a wide selection offered by the glass.

Private dining

The stunning Mill Room function space is perfect for weddings, easily seating 150 guests.

Things to do

A purveyor of an incredible selection of the finest cheeses with a good selection from local producers, cheese fanatics should head to the Cotswold Cheese Company in Moreton-in-March. They also sell other artisan produce such as breads, biscuits, crackers and chutneys, so you can stock up on delicious, local fare to take home with you.

Don't miss The Woolpack Inn, an iconic Cotswold 16th-century pub. Its long-enjoyed association with Cider With Rosie author Laurie Lee, who was a regular here. The pub is still packed with Lee memorabilia but the excellent food and local ales are reason enough to pop in.

Not far from Northleach are several country estates and shooting schools where clay pigeon shooting regularly takes place, including Ian Coley's Sporting at Andoversford. It's the perfect way to get a little shooting practice, whether you are an experienced shot or just a beginner.

Situated in a secluded part of the Coln valley and run by the National Trust, the Chedworth Roman Villa dates from around AD 120. Open daily from mid-February to the end of November, it was originally believed to have been a farmhouse.
