Stay in a hotel with views of five counties

Arrive at the charming Rising Sun Hotel and you'll discover a traditional Cotswolds stone building in a stunning location with views into the five counties around it. Inside, you'll find a tastefully decorated inn with a blend of historic and contemporary decor. There's period furniture, oak beams and four poster beds in some of the rooms.

You can expect old fashioned levels of hospitality, but plenty of mod-cons in each of the rooms. The beds feature fresh linen and plump pillows, as well as contemporary en-suite bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. Dogs are welcome too - just remember to book in advance so you can enjoy the best of the Cotswolds with your four-legged friend.

Located on the western edge of the Cotswolds, in the heart of Gloucestershire, the hotel is perfectly placed for both exploring this stunning part of the world and for trips into Cheltenham. Simply head out from Cleeve Hill to discover the picturesque countryside, villages, market towns and historic sites found throughout the beautiful Cotswolds.

Finish off your day with a delicious meal

After a busy day exploring the best of the Cotswolds, make your way to the traditional pub and restaurant to enjoy a seasonal menu of British cuisine and pub classics all at great prices. The bar is stocked with a range of ales, premium lagers, fine wines, and more, so you'll always find your tipple of choice. You can drink indoors or head out into the beer garden to enjoy the weather and some truly spectacular views. And when you wake the next morning, you can tuck into a cooked or continental breakfast to set you up for the day ahead.
