The Frogmill Hotel, Cheltenham, Gloucs

WHAT’S IT LIKE? A lovely Grade II listed 16th-century inn with water mill and log fires. With 28 rooms, this offers a boutique experience without the blowout budget.

 In summer the outside firepit, prosecco bar and pizza truck make this a hip and popular destination

ROOMS ANY GOOD? Renovated in 2018, it is stylish and luxurious. The roll-top bath steals the show from the huge walk-in shower and  bed. All have the essential Nespresso machine and free wifi. A chic mix of vintage charm and contemporary luxury.

WHAT ELSE? Well-placed for exploring cute, honey-coloured Cotswold villages. Burford has loads of indie shops and cafes. Nearby Bourton-on-the-Water is idyllic and boasts several museums. If high street shopping is more your thing, the famous spa town of Cheltenham is a ten-minute drive away from the inn and offers all the big names.

EAT HERE OR GRAB A PIZZA? When The Frogmill offers an excellent gastropub menu, why drive elsewhere? It is known for its BBQ steaks cooked on a unique coal-fired oven, but the menu is varied and the portions are large. So your biggest decisions will be WHAT to eat . . . and when to quit and head back to your boho bedroom. If you are out and about, the area is perfect for indulging a sweet tooth, with cream teas being served at every opportunity.

SO YOU’D GO BACK? Definitely. In summer, the outside firepit, prosecco bar and pizza truck make this a hip and popular destination, while the surrounding area has so much more to explore.

WHATS THE DAMAGE? A superior double costs from around £100 a night. Book now at thefrogmill.co.uk.
