The brand-new Frogmill in Shipton, near Andoversford, will welcome guests when it opens on Friday July 13 following an extensive transformation at the hands of new owners Brakspear

The largest project in Brakspear’s 240-year history, The Frogmill in Shipton has undergone major renovation, breathing in new life into the 16th century inn, transforming it into a boutique destination in the heart of the Cotswolds with delicious all-day dining, stylish rooms and attractive wedding and event facilities.

With Brakspear’s in-house design team leading the renovations, The Frogmill boasts an entirely new bar and restaurant layout alongside 28 plush en-suite bedrooms spread across three buildings; priced from £105 per room per night B&B.

An entirely new, large bar area has been created at the heart of the inn through clever use of former cellar space, with the site’s former bar area transformed into a cosy snug complete with open fire. The bar itself has distinctly traditional feel with timber-clad walls, reclaimed oak beams, flagstone flooring and mismatched vintage furniture, with a large beautiful oak bar as its centrepiece.

Much like the bar, the Frogmill’s new-look restaurant area has been extended with a spacious open-plan layout, affording the space with plenty of light for a bright, relaxed dining experience. Classic Cotswold-country hues give the restaurant a refined, elegant feel in keeping with the locality, with timber-clad walls, sandblasted oak dining furniture and eclectic artwork giving the space plenty of texture and personality.

The 28 en-suite bedrooms will house sink-in Feather & Black beds, statement wallpaper from William Morris and Zoffany, GP&J Baker fabrics and eye-catching light fixtures from Jim Lawrence; as well as vintage Ercol furnishings in several of the larger bedrooms. En-suite bathrooms will carry on the laid-back luxury feel of the rooms, with feature tiling, waterfall showers and beautiful freestanding baths in a selection of the rooms.

The Frogmill’s new food offering comes in the form of seasonally-changing breakfast, lunch, dinner and sunday menus, as well as daily specials and a speedy ‘working lunch’ midweek menu; each carefully crafted by Head Chef Jonathon Pons and his expert team.

Decorated in an elegant, classic French style, The Frogmill’s new-look wedding and events space features a minstrel gallery complete with traditional imported French balustrading; ideal for picture-perfect wedding shots. With a capacity of 150, the space will offer generous provisions for weddings, celebrations and corporate events alike.

The Frogmill’s outside space has been completely re-landscaped courtesy of landscape designer Justin Spink, the dog-friendly garden boasts a dining terrace and boules court, as well as a large lawned area; perfect for younger guests wanting to stretch their legs.
