A Pub Gone Green in the Heart of the English Countryside

Sarah Lonsdale September 24, 2013

Add eco-chic hotelier to the list of titles bestowed on Lady Bamford, the founder and inspiration behind Daylesford, the UK’s most glamorous and more importantly, organic farmshop. Lady B has applied the same rigorous attention to detail in her newly opened The Wild Rabbit, a small hotel with pub and restaurant in nearby Kingham, Oxfordshire. The original building, formerly the Tollgate Inn features chalky white interiors, typical of the stone in the area, and dates back to 1750. Renovated by Lady Bamford, the inn was opened in September and was renamed The Wild Rabbit.
