The
Experience

Justin and Charlie’s ability to create beautiful small hotels at the speed of light is unprecedented. Their fourth – lost in the country a few miles west of Oxford – is a reinvention of the country pub, though not as you might think. This isn’t a stripped-back monument to contemporary design, rather a cool take on all things retro with quirky art and a little neon mixed in for good measure. You’ll find vintage wallpapers, vivid colours, glass cabinets filled with curios, then a pink, up-cycled sofa in the cocktail bar. Country rugs cover flagstone floors, a fire burns on both sides in the bar, an original pine bench comes with plumped-up cushions. You eat in the restaurant amid ferns and flock wallpaper, perhaps Dorset crab with sorrel sauce, local venison with rainbow chard, gin and tonic panna cotta; there’s a pie and a pint at the bar, too, and a dining terrace that overlooks the kitchen garden. Stunning bedrooms set the standard for others to follow: fat beds, exposed timbers, robes in flawless bathrooms, old tea chests for bedside tables. We’ve hardly scratched the surface. Exceptional.

Introducing

Charlie & Justin

Justin Salisbury started his small boutique chain almost by accident when he took over his parents run down guesthouse in Brighton when he was just 20. He did that place up on a shoestring by inviting local artists to decorate the rooms in return for a free stay. This turned out to be his winning formula and together with his wife Charlie they now have Artists Residences in Brighton, Penzance, London and Oxfordshire, and there’s a fifth opening in Bristol in 2018.
