The Close, Tetbury
What a pleasing place, set in the very heart of Tetbury. The Close is a comfy-chic haven filled with arty flourishes. The walls are hung with modern paintings; the 18 bedrooms are spacious and beautifully devised. Dove has a four-poster; Nightingale’s bathroom features a slipper bath and also an armchair. There’s a clever arrangement of fabrics in each room, with chairs specially covered to complement curtains or bed-heads. The Close has become a hub for locals, who drop in for coffee and lunch; you’re very much in with Tetbury’s café society here.
