Lower Slaughter

Lower Slaughter

Deep in the heart of the Cotswolds, Lower Slaughter stands out as a gem nestled within this Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty. Inhabited for over 1,000 years, the village is noted in the Domesday Book and strolling its lanes will take you back in time. Its golden limestone cottages lining both sides of the River Eye have led to Lower Slaughter being voted the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds.


Copse Hill Road in the village has been voted the most romantic street in Britain.


Just two miles from popular Bourton-on-the-Water, three miles from Stow-on-the-Wold, and Kingham Station with trains to London is eight miles away. 


The Little Barn, set across the road from St. Mary’s Church in the centre of the village, is a classic Grade II Listed Cotswold barn conversion constructed of Cotswold stone under a stone tile roof with stone mullion windows, a flagstone floor and exposed beams. The barn has been exquisitely renovated and upgraded and decorated by the interior designer Lisa Sansom to create a romantic haven for couples to enjoy this stunning part of Britain.


Within the village are the historic water mill, museum and café and, for drinking and dining, two highly regarded establishments, the luxurious The Slaughters Manor House and The Slaughters Country Inn, all within a two minute walk.


There are loads of charming villages close by that can all be reached in as little as 15 minutes. These include Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. Inside half-an-hour you are at Broadway, known as the Jewel of the Cotswolds. Nearby, the majestic Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, the botanical gardens at Oxford University, Cheltenham Literary and Jazz Festivals and its famous races are all accessible, as is the historic city of Bath.

Lower Slaughter is a fantastic base from which to hunt out the finest restaurants, pubs and
gastropubs in the Cotswolds, whether for a cosy fireside meal on a crisp winter’s day or glorious sun-soaked garden in high summer. In addition to the extraordinary pubs with their own high-end dining offerings, across the Cotswolds are some fantastic fine dining possibilities, using the best of the local produce and attracting leading chefs.

The Cotswolds is also a mecca for walkers, with everything from short circular strolls to long distance treks.
