Feldon Valley – Lower Brailes, Oxfordshire
There has been a par 71, 18-hole golf course at Feldon Valley for more than two decades, but it was only in 2019 that accommodation was added to create a tranquil Cotswolds retreat. Positioned parallel to the golf course, Feldon Valley’s 25 contemporary rooms are spread across four modern wood and glass lodges, as well as the main building, all linked by a raised boardwalk. Some rooms come with a private veranda; others have floor-to-ceiling windows facing the woods and golf course beyond (families and larger groups can book an entire lodge). The spacious lounge area has glass doors that open onto a welcoming terrace with firepits and valley vistas – perfect for a leisurely leaf through the papers or a peaceful nightcap. You can also enjoy holistic therapy treatments in the cosy Shepherd’s Hut. The Kitchen at Feldon Valley is the onsite restaurant that provides a tempting bar menu from 11am each day and à la carte dining in the evening with dishes inspired by the region and its wonderful local suppliers. The balconies of the bar and restaurant provide a stunning setting to watch the sun go down, sipping on a signature cocktail of your choice.
