summer guest chef in residence - NOEL MORALES

Prepare for the ultimate Mexican twists on English ingredients you will never have imagined!

Chef and owner of Mexico’s El Refugio Mezcaleria and co-author of The Native Mexican Kitchen 
“But the best meal we have is at the new El Refugio Mezcaleria, which specialises in mezcal (tequila is, apparently, so yesterday) and has Monty Python-esque tasting notes: “Velvety like the antlers of a maturing reindeer.” I have a chile relleno stuffed with almonds and meat, which I could happily eat every day for the rest of my life”

Fabulous Spaces

Since last year's Covid pop up, we have invested in the planning, infrastructure and facilities essential to delivering our vision.

 

TWO POOLS warmer than the summer sea

Our 32’x16’ swimming pool is admittedly no sea, but we keep it much warmer and is saltwater (we have installed a plant that creates its own chlorine using salt water - much more sustainable and better on the skin).

The pool is overlooked by a furnished elevated sun terrace commanding a broad vista of Gloucestershire countryside. It incorporates a 6 person hot tub and enjoys all day table service. Our Duckling Splash!  features a 15' round heated outdoor saltwater pool. 

If you are a sea swimmer, the best we can do is suggest freshwater swimming spots in the River Severn (a 10 minute walk away) or in lakes at Cirencester Water Park (40 mins)  or some lesser known close to the Malvern Hills

ALL WEATHER SUN TERRACE

Open daily from 8am until close of day. Casual dining and drinking eating with table service. Roofed with detachable panoramic side windows. Features a double faced log burner and Bose sound system for the evenings. 

OUTDOOR KITCHEN

We can take all the work out for a group booking and cook up a feast for you in front of your own laid banqueting table.

Alternatively, we can hire this with its fridge pre-stocked with the best local ingredients for you to prepare, BBQ, cook or medley in our giant party paella.

NEW AMENITIES

Funtastic Hospitality

 

A cornerstone of our vibe is being non corporate. You may arrive as a guest - we wish you to leave as a friend.

We will take time to welcome and to know you. 

We are thoroughly informal 🙂

Our wish is you depart not just as a friend but with a nourished mind, body and soul, inspired by your experiences here.

We will not always get it right. Like everyone, we are on a journey but we will do our best 🙂

Fire To Your Table!

Who wants to travel with a fire pit or BBQ? For campers we deliver a BBQ and a fire pit to your camp table for free!* for your stay, and supply a kindling & lighter starter kit and a daily wood top up service.

For those choosing to be our glamping guests we will even light, manage and restock your fires throughout your stay.
*subject to a £20 cleaning charge payable at end of stay.

Outdoor Friends & Family Play 

We can lay out a farm croquet lawn; set you up to play badminton, football, cricket, boules or table tennis. Better still, on a hot day, we can even facilitate water pistol wars with your family or friends. 

Equipment provision and set up is free, just subject to availability.

A Busy Craig

Craig, our incredibly soft Collie, looks forward to meeting everyone and adding to his list of chores (already including Protector of Hens; Minder of Ducks; and Food Litter Removals Expert).

His most cherished role, though, is as Children's Cricket Coach. This entails him dropping a tennis ball at the feet of the child and encouraging them to throw it as far as possible. Again, and again, and again.

We must credit him with this invention.

This is why we are afraid to tell him about the two baby Pygmy Goats arriving in mid July (pictured above with Mummy) as we feel we already know his answer - he will tell us he only has so many hours in the day and a lot of other children to work on. 

Mindful Activities

We have many trusted partners and can arrange many activities for groups, although we are creating a series of fixtures - like  Sunrise Sunday yoga,  and will  be adding these to our Experiences Calendar.
