The Slaughters

Upper Slaughter is built on the banks of the River Eye which meanders through a mellow Cotswold landscape to Lower Slaughter about a mile away.   The short walk from Upper to Lower Slaughter is not to be missed. 

The village is surrounded by glorious countryside within a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty so walking options are plentiful.  You can download some self-guided walks here.

We are perfectly situated for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds, including the popular market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, and Chipping Campden.  The area is well known for its abundance of chocolate-box villages, beautiful gardens and historic houses. We’re 15 minutes from Daylesford organic farm.

There’s some amazing eating opportunities in the Cotswolds too, here’s some of our favourites:

The Wheatsheaf at Nortleach

The Old Butchers at Stow-on-the-Wold
