The nostalgia of the road-side inn with pub and rooms upstairs has come a long, long way.
The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Oxfordshire, UK doesn’t conjure up tired, old rooms where pungent travellers rest their weary heads (after drinking and eating too much in the pub downstairs). Far from it.
Built in 1950, The Wild Rabbit was renovated last year to a high standard. With a very nice restaurant and traditional village pub attached, guest are welcome to stay in one of their 12 very comfortable rooms. Their rooms have sweet names such as the Hare, Otter and Mouse rooms.
Every room has a TV, iPod docking station, Nespresso, complimentary coffee, tea and biscuits, fridge, wi-fi, bathroom with powerful shower, dressing gowns and complimentary toiletries. Individually hand crafted beds, plush linen, stone walls, muted colours, sweet artwork. You’ll feel right at home…if your home happens to be as well styled as this.
I’m in love with their whole aesthetic. They really are the “whole package”. I could imagine a weekend away and not having to leave The Wild Rabbit building at all.
Unfortunately, being an English countryside restaurant, they do serve rabbit on the menu, but I am willing to overlook this.
