A Georgian manor house in the Berkshire countryside - includes breakfast and an optional dinner allowance
The 18th-century manor house of Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel is decadently set within 16 acres of beautiful, landscaped grounds. This wonderful example of Georgian splendour was once home to the poet Percy Shelley when owned by his mother for a period of time, and the grandeur of his age remains in the portrait-lined staircase and the lounge's fireplace. Located just five miles from Newbury and within easy reach from London, Bristol and Oxford, this country estate provides a tranquil retreat within the verdant surrounds of the North Wessex Downs of Berkshire.
Mecure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel makes the most of its situation and affords sweeping views over the Kennet Valley from the glass-sided Orangery restaurant - so when you're not dining on the area's freshest produce, you can gaze over the lands from whence they came. For a quiet stroll, head to the tow path of the Kennet and Avon Canal or, if a satisfying sweat is your way to unwind, hit the hotel's outdoor croquet lawn and tennis court.
