A stunning 15th century manor house in glorious parkland, Ellenborough Park is Gloucestershire’s only 5-star hotel, just a few miles outside Cheltenham and right on the gateway to the Cotswolds. This peaceful 90-acre country estate has original stone flags and wooden beams, glorious vast open fireplaces that speak to its rich history and 61 luxury guest rooms, each designed by Nina Campbell. Guests can take afternoon tea in the Great Hall, choose from a rich menu of sumptuous dishes in The Restaurant, or dine alfresco in the Cedar Pavillion Tent and the Horse Box Bistro dining carriages – fittingly reflecting the equestrian influence of neighbouring Cheltenham.
The hotel has a small Elemis spa and an outside pool, a beautiful space for wedding receptions and events and a Boot Room from which guests can borrow a wax coat and a pair of Dubarry’s in order to explore the nearby rolling countryside. Dog friendly rooms make it the perfect countryside retreat for the entire family.
