|The Feathers Hotel room|
The Feathers Hotel is a member of Pride of Britain, and with many outstanding attributes, is globally notorious for its having the largest collection of gins anywhere in the world. With 181 bewildering varieties from which to choose, it is no wonder that the establishment holds the Guinness World record for the most gins.
The hotel underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2010 and the result has been spectacular. The hotel epitomises the ambience of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds region: tranquillity, quirkiness and the warmest of hospitable accommodation. The Feathers is a haven for those seeking peace and quiet, with only 16 bedrooms and five suites. However each room is completely individual, with added treats such as free-standing stone basins, bespoke lighting schemes sweet decanters.
Winter Offers in Oxfordshire and the CotswoldsThe location itself is unsurpassed. Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds and the surrounding location provides some of the most historic and quintessential English culture and tradition. The gates of the famous Blenheim Palace, Winston Churchill’s birthplace and the haunt of the monarchy are a stone’s throw away. What better way to enjoy the winter season than with a bracing walk through the 2,000 acre Blenheim Palace estate with its parklands and gardens designed by the master himself, Capability Brown?
Because of the popularity of the local environment and the requests for the best walking routes, the Feathers has designed a step-by-step walkers booklet starting and finishing at the door of the hotel. Guests who book a superior Cotswold room and eat in the award winning restaurant will receive a copy of the booklet free, as well as a year’s pass to the Blenheim estate. At just £221 per room, guests can enjoy a day’s exhilarating ramble then return for a welcome and wholesome evening meal before settling down in the comfort of the bar. This exclusive offer is available from 1st November 2013 to 31st March 2014.
November is also the month when the traditional Sloe Gin Challenge is held at the Feathers Hotel, possibly the most unique event to be held in Oxfordshire: Cotswolds’ individuality at its best! For two day on 29th and 30th November, the hotel will be searching for the best Sloe Gin in the UK and will be open to the public on the second day.
The competition is open to home-brewers and commercial producers, and culminates in the top three gins in each category facing off for the final big prize. For just £15 per person, guests are invited to sample the winning spirits and judge for themselves!
