LOCATION: Set in the small, pretty village of Kingham in Oxfordshire, this traditional 18th-century inn is nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds.

ROOMS: The award-winning Daylesford Organic farm team was tasked with reinventing this property, and its proprietor and Daylesford founder Lady Carole Bamford has spent more than £1 million on the refurbishment. It's an investment that has certainly paid off. The overall look combines pared-down style with stripped-back walls and handcrafted furniture.
All 12 rooms are spacious yet cosy with quality mattresses, pure linen bed sheets and toiletries from nearby Bamford Haybarn spa. The soft colour palette of greys, blues and taupes makes for a calming feel, while the chunky wooden furniture adds a rustic but chic look.

FAMOUS FOR: Being dubbed the poshest pub in Britain. The hotel restaurant serves organic food from its own garden and also supports local suppliers. The hotel was named Pub of the Year 2015 in Michelin Eating Out in Pubs guide and placed in the top 10% of The AA's 2015 guide.

CELEBRITY GUESTS: It's a favourite with Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden and you may also bump into former MP Tessa Jowell.
