Great Tew is a tiny picturesque village in the Cotswolds and what really makes it worth your while is the fantastic 16th-century inn – The Falkland Arms.

Highlights
Location
  • From the moment we caught a glimpse of its front garden benches basking in the afternoon sun we knew we found it, our fairytale Cotswolds country inn.

    When booking this place, the saying “…too good to be true…” did spring to mind but, as it happens, we have discovered a definite exception to that rule. Priced for the locals rather than tourists, the 16th century Falkland Arms in Great Tew fulfilled our every fantasy of a traditional country inn. We loved its idyllic setting, warm welcome and the very generous home cooking.

    Good to Know

    The age of the Inn means that some of the rooms can be very cozy.

    We Loved

    Aside what’s been said already, the garden at the back is the kind where you easily spend a whole afternoon. The friendly atmosphere is infectious so much so you feel instantly at home here.
