The Wild Rabbit: A very British bolthole

'Grandma's house' in the hills of Gloucestershire

Two weeks ago in the hills of the Cotswolds village of Kingham in England, a fabulously pretty hotel opened its doors. Nicknamed 'grandma's house' it has just 12 bedrooms, a small restaurant and a traditional English pub within its historic three-story building dating back to 1750.

Reconstruction of the old building was successfully completed a few months ago and allowed architects to 'clean up' its brickwork, replace windows and plant a traditional English garden.

Authentic is the name of the game – quite literally – at The Wild Rabbit. A choice of locally sourced cuisine is served, think poultry and meat reared at local farms and super-nutritious fruit and vegetables picked from nearby allotments before being cooked and served in an atmospheric dining room, decorated with ornaments by local artisans and craftsmen. 

Grandma's place has never looked so chic.
