The Falcon is an imposing Cotswold-stone building that dates back to 1554 and sits on the main street of this attractive Cotswold village. Overlooking St Mary's church with its famous clipped yews, it's also within easy driving distance of Cheltenham Racecourse. Bedrooms are individually designed and well equipped with comfortable beds, crisp white linen and very good quality toiletries. With an eclectic mix of furnishings and chalky white and muted duck egg blue walls, this popular place has a charming atmosphere where locals and tourists mingle. The kitchen serves an accomplished bistro-style menu based on locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients.
