Thyme, The Cotswolds

Thyme is a village within a village that includes hotel, Ox Barn restaurant, Meadow Spa, the Baa, Cookery School, Tithe Barn event space and village pub – The Swan. Less than two hours from central London. Guests can relax in elegant drawing rooms, enjoy the chemical-free pool and Aurelia treatments for body and mind; take a country cycle ride or walk through the gardens and farm. Carefully curated menus are farm-based and plant-inspired, with classes in the Cookery School getting to the heart of Thyme’s story… the magnificent spaces make Thyme the perfect place for celebrating or corporate events.
