The
Experience

1 The Square is in sleepy Upper Slaughter but don’t let that blood-curdling name put you off – it comes from the Saxon word Slohtre: ‘muddy place’. Don’t let that put you off either! This is a quintessential, postcard-pretty Cotswolds village with a river running through, honeystone houses, an ancient church and a village green. The Square, a group of paupers’ cottages grouped around a shared courtyard and tucked beneath the church, was built over 300 years ago and remodelled by Lutyens in 1906. Number 1 is actually two cottages knocked together and – as an estate agent might say – is deceptively spacious. Inside, a calm serenity reigns, with muted colours, seagrass matting, wood-burners, top-notch fittings and supremely comfortable beds. Everything has been beautifully thought through, and your small private courtyard makes a perfect spot for summer dining. Upper Slaughter, unspoilt and enchanting, is hard to leave, but there are fabulous walks in all directions, equestrian opportunities aplenty, and Stow on the Wold three miles away should you fancy some chi-chi shopping.
