The Bear of Rodborough is located on Rodborough Common within the acres of beautiful National Trust land where cows roam free each summer. Originally built in the 17th Century, this former coaching inn provides a warm welcome for all, including dogs who will feel right at home in our country house bedrooms with plenty of walks to enjoy. Whether staying in the main house or country house, all bedrooms are homely and charming and many boast spectacular views over the Cotswolds and beyond. The Library Restaurant is located in the oldest part of the building and serves AA Rosette-awarded dishes in a relaxing environment. Meanwhile, the Bear Bar is typically English with real ales on draught and a more casual food offering. Step outside and you’ll also find the Pavilion Garden Bar, where food and drink can be enjoyed alongside the fun additions of popcorn, slushies, table tennis, and table football!

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.3 for a two-person trip.
