The new addition to a freshly launched arm of Daylesford Organic also includes more than 30 Cotswolds cottages, as owner Carole Bamford branches out from her farm shop, spa and lifestyle offering near Stow-on-the-Wold.
Following a light refurbishment, The Three Horseshoes now offers simple seasonal food and six cosy bedrooms, a large garden with an
outdoor bar and views across the Cotswolds hills.
The 18th century pub in the Cotswold village of Asthall, has traditionally been a locals pub, renowned for its community spirit.
In the early 1900s, the pub’s farrier innkeepers replaced the horseshoes of travellers passing through the village. In 1977, it was renamed The Maytime and now, with fresh ownership, the pub has returned to its roots, becoming The Three Horseshoes to honour its history and heritage.
The Daylesford makeover has refreshed six bedrooms in a palette of natural tones and materials. King or super-king-sized beds, fine linens, walk-in showers and Bamford products provide the luxuries associated with Daylesford Stays.
Drawing inspiration from The Three Horseshoes’ history for its interiors, bedroom names have an equestrian nod, whilst design details throughout the pub allude to the craftsmanship of its farrier heritage.
The Three Horseshoes now serves a comforting menu of seasonally changing dishes made with local produce from Daylesford Organic; craft beers and ciders; and a considered wine and cocktail list.
Outside, the garden is considered The Three Horseshoes’ best kept secret with views across the Windrush Valley. Daylesford Stays has introduced garden games and a converted horsebox, from which wood-fired pizzas are served.
In the winter, firepits will be lit for an alfresco drink, wrapped in a sheepskin blanket.
