Plans for new overnight accommodation at Cotswold pub, The Feathered Nest Inn in Nether Westcote, have been approved.

Popular Cotswold pub, The Feathered Nest Inn in Nether Westcote, is set to extend its accommodation offering, with planning permission granted for eight new bedrooms in a stand-alone property on-site.

Work is due to start in early 2025, with planning approved for a new building in the pub grounds, which will house eight units of overnight accommodation.

The traditional Cotswold inn already offers four boutique bedrooms and a dog-friendly cottage for travellers — with the new accommodation plans more than doubling its occupancy for guests.

There's more good news for The Feathered Nest, too, as new head chef Rene Pinedo continues to take the kitchen from strength to strength.

Fusing inspiration from his Caribbean heritage with his training from the kitchens of Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, his menus offer a creative take on British cuisine, incorporating fresh seafood — which is brought in daily — and open-grill cooking, as well as sourcing herbs and vegetables from the pub's own garden.

One to watch for foodie experiences, the pub also offers a six-course tasting menu with optional wine pairings — boasting one of the largest wine selections in the Cotswolds, with 25 options available by the glass in both the bar and restaurant — and hosted an exclusive pop-up event with Rene's former boss, Michelin-starred chef Ollie Dabbous, in March 2024.

As well as attracting visitors to the Cotswolds as a popular foodie destination, The Feathered Nest is a community pub for the residents of Church Westcote and Nether Westcote — with the village's wet-led trade set to benefit from its latest plans to invest in overnight accommodation and grow its income streams.
