Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa is a luxurious hotel in the heart of rural Warwickshire nestled in 11 acres of countryside, just three miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. Following an extensive £5.6 million refurbishment over 2020, guests can expect newly refurbished bedrooms complete with rich, warm designs, upgraded guest spaces with a contemporary twist, a stunning restaurant featuring original 16th century oak panelling, and a newly renovated spa and wedding venue. The unique 125-year-old property boasts charming grounds, complete with an 11th century church and a listed, ornate topiary garden, steeped in history. One of its most famous visitors includes none other than William Shakespeare himself, who allegedly married Anne Hathaway in the All Saints church next to the hotel, and who’s granddaughter followed suit by getting wed in the very same church. The exquisite, listed topiary garden planted over 125 years ago, has been curated and shaped to form giant chess pieces, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. A variety of conference spaces have also been refreshed, and an ambient library adorned with a ceiling of floating books provides a light filled area for relaxation or inspiration, said to be where William Shakespeare wrote his famous comedy ‘As You Like It’.
