Having stood proudly since the 17th Century, the coaching house has an intriguing past filled with highwaymen and pilferage. Since been taken under new ownership in August 2020, The Ragged Cot has a modern, comfortable style – with dogs and wellies welcome! The shabby chic interior and deeply cosy bedrooms are the epitome of countryside cool.
Backing on to 600 acres of National Trust land, The Ragged Cot is a stone’s throw from the ancient market town of Minchinhampton and within easy reach of Tetbury and Cirencester. From the world-famous Gatcombe Festival of British Eventing to the award-winning local farmers’ markets, it is perfectly placed for access to the most popular Cotswold events and activities. This also makes The Ragged Cot the ideal venue for private hire and corporate stays.
At The Ragged Cot, we take great pride and care when creating our menu – following our core philosophy of “cooked with care and served with pride”. We create each dish and their components with fresh produce at its heart. We don’t use frozen vegetables; we only use fish which is either fresh from market or frozen at sea and our meats come from cattle and other livestock which have grazed green pastures and our poultry have been allowed to run free. In doing so, we support many local and UK producers, farmers and suppliers. We use biodegradable cleaning chemicals, we sort and recycle around 80% of our waste and our used oil is collected, cleaned and converted into biofuel. We don’t work with just anyone, we look for the highest accreditations, full traceability and sustainability so that we don’t harm our precious environment.
