Experience a revival of Cotswolds’ culinary traditions

Southrop, Gloucestershire

Perfect your culinary skills at Thyme at Southrop’s cookery school, then explore some of the Cotswolds’ best restaurants in Bibury and Nailsworth.

Start your foodie break at Thyme at Southrop, a cookery school and beautiful country estate in the Cotswolds. Small-group cookery classes are a social affair and vary from butchery to butter making and preserving, with an emphasis on traditional skills and locally grown ingredients.

Stay in the boutique Thyme House hotel or a luxurious holiday cottage; dine on traditional English food in the village’s award-winning 17th century Swan Pub. Nearby, watch the fish leap at the trout farm in picture-perfect Bibury. Here you can buy fresh or smoked trout to take home from the deli-style fish shop.

Further expand your foodie horizons with a visit to Nailsworth in the south Cotswolds, home to the famed Hobbs House Bakery, William’s Fish Market & Foodhall and a small selection of gourmet restaurants and places to eat.
