Fed up of lockdown? Enter now to win a Cotswolds staycation
What makes a perfect weekend staycation? Aimless morning walks through gnarly woodland passages, perhaps? Afternoons spent cocooned with a book in a Chesterfield armchair? Farm-fresh dinner at a rustic-style pub? Better still, a pub with rooms so one can roll from the dinner table to the bedroom with ease?
We've teamed up with our friends at The New Inn to give one lucky SUITCASE reader and a friend all of the above and more. The winner will enjoy two nights at The New Inn - the exquisite new opening from culinary duo, Baz & Fred - as well as complimentary dinner on one evening and a meal at The Stump, its nearby sibling restaurant, on the other.
As you might have gleaned already, The New Inn is no ordinary "hotel". Set in the somnolent town of Coln, right in the heart of the Cotswolds, this restaurant with rooms takes pub grub to new gastronomic extremes. You're probably familiar with Baz & Fred. They're the brains behind some of London's most sought-after street food - just the thought of their oven-crisp pizza kiosk in Flat Iron Square is making us drool. Last year they opened The Stump to great acclaim, and now they're back, dishing up their signature hearty food and stylish rooms just around the corner.

The New Inn might occupy the timber framework of a 17th-century roadside inn, but there's nothing fusty or dated about its interiors. Each room is completely individual and designed in homage to The New Inn's rustic heritage - we're talking four-poster beds, roll-top baths and tastefully chosen antique furnishings. It's the sort of place you feel bad sullying with muddy boots, but that makes for a more-than-cushty embrace after days spent zigzagging up and down the Coln Valley.
As the evenings close in, there's nothing more comforting than knowing you have a bells-and-whistles country getaway on the horizon. Take the edge off lockdown number two; this one's on us.

The New Inn is an old roadside inn, in the picture-postcard village of Coln St. Aldwyns, which re-opened in September 2020 after a complete renovation. The vibrant pub in the heart of the Cotswolds boasts 14 ensuite rooms with an open kitchen serving Baz & Fred's exceptional food in an informal atmosphere.
