When we come to the Cotswolds, we often stay in Broadway at The Broadway Hotel.  This past year we stayed near Tetbury, and found a sister hotel of The Broadway — The Hare and Hounds.  We’ve always been pleased with this small chain, and the H&H didn’t disappoint.

IMG_8993These Cotswold properties have a reputation for taking classic historic properties with character and doing the interiors with a contemporary flair based on a local theme…


…here, obviously, hares and hounds.


The pub and bar and the more formal dining room were delightfully filled with the creatures. Plus we had one of the best breakfasts of the trip for me…salmon and scrambled eggs, lots of tea, toast and fruit)

IMG_8998One of my favorite things about these inns is the display of original art and prints throughout the hotel…from the restaurants to the hallways to the rooms and baths.



IMG_8979Even the older prints look modern in this setting.


A few of my absolute favorites in this inn were in our room…


The hares on the walls were wonderful and full of character.




Even in the bathroom there was a fanciful piece of art…



You have to love a place that loves art and color so much.


The perfect place to stay before our garden tour of Highgrove.
