On the leafy northern edge of Cirencester, Stratton House is a gracious Georgian mansion built by a wealthy wool merchant. Several modern additions add rambling appeal and a generous sense of space. The hotel was acquired by Aidan and Sarah Stevens in 2016 and they have transformed the once slightly lacklustre venue into a bright, upscale haven that balances contemporary comfort with a traditional hotel ambience. Relax on the sunny terrace in the walled garden, enjoy a treatment in the newly completed spa or indulge in afternoon tea in the genteel lounge; this is a genial bolthole from which to explore the Cotswolds and then unwind in style.



Nearby Bibury is an idyllic honey-stone village.

Located on the edge of the Cotswolds, the market town of Cirencester has plenty to do and see. Visit the park and the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre.
By car: around 2 hours from London, 1 hour from Bristol and 3 hours from Manchester. Free parking available.
By train: direct trains from London (50 minutes), Oxford (45 minutes) and Cardiff (1 hour). The station is a 25-minute taxi ride from the hotel.
