Lower Slaughter Manor
The Cotswolds

Located in the picturesque Gloucestershire village of Lower Slaughter, this country house hotel is a wonderful base for exploring the Cotswolds, one of Britain’s most quaint and beautiful regions.

Surrounded by woodland, winding country lanes, rolling hills and green fields, guests at Lower Slaughter Manor can easily explore the nearby pretty villages and countryside by foot. Alternatively the team at Lower Slaughter Manor are happy to arrange activities throughout your stay ranging from archery and 4x4 driving to walking trails and in-room spa treatments. In summer the five acres of lawns are a perfect place to try your hand at a game of croquet or enjoy afternoon tea and cocktails, or for more active guests, there is a tennis court on site.

The hotel is housed in a well preserved 17th century manor house. Recently refurbished, the new interiors mix traditional and eccentric British touches; bedrooms combine stately four poster beds with luxe fabrics, pretty wallpapers and prints and light-filled bathrooms. For colder months the hotel’s drawing rooms and library have burning log fires and plenty of books and DVDs to while away an afternoon.

Foodies will be pleased to know that the hotel has an award-winning restaurant, The Sixteen58, which serves local and seasonal produce. And across the road is a cosy pub for the winter evenings. For those looking for something a bit further afield, Daylesford Organic Farm is a short drive away; the organic farm shop is the perfect place to pick up a gourmet picnic lunch or dine al fresco in the sun-drenched courtyard.

No one realises how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
