The Future Looks Bright for The Feathered Nest Inn

The Feathered Nest Inn

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Nether Westcote, The Feathered Nest Inn combines 350 years of rich history with countryside charm.

Originally a malt house, this traditional Cotswolds pub now offers 3 AA Rosette cuisine, four boutique bedrooms, a dog-friendly cottage and unrivalled countryside views — all just a 90-minute train journey from London.

Menus are seasonal and locally sourced, with fish brought in fresh daily and many of the herbs and vegetables grown in the pub garden.
