"30 fabulous foodie sleepovers in the UK - “This eighteenth century honey stone pub is a rural haven""

Olive Magazine

"A 16th-century inn, at pretty Ascott-under-Wychwood, recently taken over by hotel gurus Sam and Georgie Pearman (the couple behind the spruced-up Talbot in Malton.) It bears all their hip-yet-homely hallmarks, including playful, eclectic furnishings, sink-into beds and seasonal food."

Western Daily Press

"The garden at The Swan, in the picture-perfect, chocolate box Cotswold village of Ascott-under-Wychwood, certainly makes for a fine substitute for Provence despite its quintessential Englishness... Dating from the 16th century, the honey-stoned village inn itself ticks all the right boxes when it comes to bona fide Cotswold bolthole, with seven bedrooms and a family-size cottage in the garden as well as a bar/restaurant and separate oak-beamed feasting room with space for 18 diners."

"A honey-hued Cotswolds darling near Chipping Norton, this 16th-century coaching inn steals the show for its modern take on pub grub... It only opened in May, but we predict big things for this eight-room bolthole."

"This 16th-century half-timbered inn, at the heart of pretty Ascott-under-Wychwood, has been revamped by hotel gurus Sam and Georgie Pearman (the couple are also behind the spruced-up Talbot in Malton). It bears all their hip-yet-homely hallmarks, including playful, eclectic furnishings and art, sink-into beds and spot-on seasonal food."

Evening Standard

"The food is undoubtedly the main event at The Swan. Obviously hugely popular with the locals, the restaurant was buzzing on a Friday evening."

Cosmopolitan

"This 17th-century former coaching inn, in the market town of Malton, has had a serious glow-up lately, with immaculately curated interior and the area's artisanal foodie credentials slap-bang front and centre."

SheerLuxe

"Since relaunching the restaurant with rooms in May, Country Creatures has overhauled The Swan’s dishes and redecorated everything from the beer garden to the bedrooms. The inn’s traditional Cotswolds honey stone exterior and wooden beamed interiors have been given a new lease of life via eclectic wallpapers, bright textiles and smatterings of modern art. We especially liked the on-trend forest green accents, which extend from the banquette seating through to the bold patterned wallpaper in the dining room."

Spectator Life

"Set in the foodie paradise of Malton; a buzzing and picturesque market town on the North Yorkshire moors. Besides the breath-taking rural landscape that surrounds it, the hotel has gorgeous, warm interiors, with twenty-six rooms humorously titled ‘Excellent’, ‘Good’ and ‘Cosy.’ The hotel is pretty much all of these things; with a beautiful location, ripe for exploration, right on its doorstep."
