A Cotswolds Staycation at Ellenborough Park

15 June 2021

April French Furnell

Steeped in over 500 years of history and heritage and set amidst 90 acres of sprawling countryside, this former stately home offers a quintessential British experience.

The five star hotel has all the luxuries you might expect: a spa, a heated outdoor pool, countryside walks with Dubarry wax jackets and wellington boots at your disposal, and culinary options including alfresco dining in newly launched Carriages for the summer.

On the south-facing terrace – which is the ideal suntrap - guests can enjoy the newly launched alfresco dining menu. It is here that you'll find the Carriages, which are covered, lit and heated seating booths for between four and six people, the perfect spot for enjoying the English summer, come rain or shine.

Also launched for this summer is the Tattinger Horsebox, a beautiful outdoor bar to ensure guests don’t go thirsty. The horsebox is a true testament to Ellenborough Park’s location which is just moments from the iconic Cheltenham Race Course.

Tip: For those on a family trip, the lawn opposite the terrace has plenty of space for little ones to explore whilst in full view and there is a swing in the grounds.

Nearby family friendly trips include the Cotswold Water Park, Cotswold Farm Park, Cheltenham’s Sandford Parks Lido and Daylesford Farm.


Prices: Rooms start from £209 inclusive of breakfast, for more information visit
