england’s most iconic rural destination The Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is 800 square miles of pictureperfect villages, nature reserves and ancient monuments. It’s the setting for some wildly eccentric events such as the Cooper’s Hill cheese-rolling, more conventionally enjoyable pastimes such as cycling, walking and eating scones, and three wonderful Bespoke Hotels – the Noel Arms, Cotswold House and Stonehouse Court, two of them featured in this edition of beattitude.

NOEL ARMS Charles II stayed here during the English Civil War, but things are a bit more relaxed these days. The Noel Arms is a traditional Inn with rooms in a beautiful location on the Cotswold Way that is perfect for keen walkers. Put your feet up in front of the log fire in the bar, read the papers and treat yourself to a homemade cake in the excellent coffee shop.

The Noel Arms was a winner in the 2015 PetsPyjamas Travel Awards. Well behaved dogs are always welcome!
