Discover Relaxation at Thyme Retreat in the Cotswolds

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, Thyme Retreat in the Cotswolds might be just the place for you. This Seventeenth-century village turned chic retreat is set on a 150-acre property dedicated solely to relaxation, wellness, and enjoying good food in peaceful surroundings. Founder Caryn Hibbert, a former obstetrician turned hotelier, created this oasis for her family back in 2002, and it has since become a haven for travellers seeking a countryside escape.

Thyme offers 32 accommodations across manor houses that blend old-world charm with modern amenities. The retreat features various activities, such as tennis courts, a swimming pool, a top-notch spa, and one of the most highly regarded restaurants in the area, located in a converted ox barn. The Ox Barn at Thyme has become a legend in culinary circles and is worth the trip on its own. The location is impressive, with a high-ceilinged dining room boasting exposed beams and industrial mood lighting. The menu makes use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, giving every dish a sense of place.

The overall atmosphere at Thyme Retreat is an elegant blend of country relaxation and refined details. The former lamb shed has been converted into a luxurious bar, lounge, and library known as Baa. Guests can spend a leisurely time enjoying a drink and browsing through coffee table books from Assouline. Thyme Retreat is first and foremost a sanctuary, and the accommodations are designed with comfort and tranquillity in mind.
