The Plough Hotel is the ideal place to stay and explore the Cotswolds. It is believed to have been built in 1660 for a local, yeoman farmer or minor country noble. Although Clanfield is promoted as the â€˜edge of the Cotswoldsâ€™, most of the surrounding land is high quality arable land formed by the alluvial deposits of the River Thames. Thus a large percentage of the population were involved in agriculture and this resulted in the Plough becoming one of a number of tenanted public houses in the village.
This picturesque, 16th-century hotel in the Cotswold village of Clanfield has cosy log fires, good food using local produce, and a garden with terrace for al fresco dining. This stylish yet informal hotel is conveniently located to explore landmark Cotswolds towns and the rolling countryside. The Cotswold Plough has 11 elegant, confortable and spacious en suite bedrooms, with free WiFi. The restaurant serves seasonal dishes and the bar features a gin pantry with over 150 gins and a selection of ales. Kelmscott Manor, the home of William Morris, is about 4 miles away. The River Thames is easy to reach. Bampton, home to Downton Abbey, is right on the doorstep. Oxford is just over a 30-minute drive away.
