Ellenborough Park

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Deluxe Double room

An award-winning, five-star Cotswolds spa hotel at the foot of Cleeve Hill, with views over Cheltenham racecourse – includes breakfast

Located on the edge of the Cotswolds, Cheltenham offers the perfect balance of town and country. Here, in the exclusive outskirts, you'll not only have an array of honey stone cottages, boutique shops and restaurants within a short driving distance, but some of the most idyllic villages and unforgettable views in England.

That said, there's every reason not to set foot outside of Ellenborough Park's grounds. This truly magnificent 15th-century estate comes complete with a luxury Indian-themed spa, two newly renovated restaurants and beautiful gardens. To help you take advantage of the stunning surroundings, the hotel team are on hand to organise everything from polo lessons and golf to clay pigeon shooting and riding lessons.

Once you've had your fill of fresh air and exercise, relax in the sauna or whirlpool bath or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool – one of the most sought-after spots in the county on a cloud-free day. Unsurprisingly, Ellenborough Park scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
