The Hare and Hounds Hotel near the historic town of Tetbury sits on beautiful manicured gardens where morning walks are a must. Originally a farmhouse from the 18th century, the main hotel building was added in 1928, keeping the style of the former inn.

At the hotel, The Beaufort Restaurant served me my very first English breakfast, a combination (for those who don’t know) of bacon, poached or fried eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread or toast with butter, sausages, black pudding and baked beans, not to mention fresh juices, baked pastries, and local yogurts. It’s definitely a bit heavy if you’re not used to it, but it will get your day started and keep you filled throughout the afternoon.

Dinner started in their comfortable lounge with small bites and tea and then after in the main dining room. We were delighted with dishes that were combinations of different flavors –some modern and some traditional. You can’t miss some after dinner tea while relaxing back at the lounge, the perfect spot for great conversation or to read your favorite book.

Walking around the Hare and the Hounds main building you will be surprised of other amenities like a library overlooking the gardens and Jack Hare’s Bar, an English pub with a wood burning fireplace and great atmosphere.

If I have the opportunity to go back, I would love to stay in this hotel again because of its great rooms, comfortable beds and great staff.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
