Historic Worcestershire stay with prized fine dining

The Wood Norton, Evesham

Hall Double Executive room

An imposing Grade II listed hotel in Evesham, with double AA Rosette-winning fine dining - includes breakfast, dining discounts and dinner options

The Wood Norton is a recently revamped Grade II listed boutique hotel in the Vale of Evesham with a tale, or two, to tell. Once a hunting lodge, then a listening post during the Cold War, it was more recently used by the BBC as a Doctor Who location. Set across 35 acres of grounds, it still has a wealth of original features: beautiful wooden panelling in the main hall, original parquet flooring and immaculate landscaped gardens. It was already a place brimming with character and, after the completion of its four-million-pound refurbishment, it gleams with newly restored glory.

The restaurant takes a playful twist on British cuisine, and you couldn't ask for a better setting than the impressive dining room with its view of the grounds, while there's also a swanky bar serving cocktails and afternoon tea. It is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, or even take a hot air balloon tour over the area. All this and you're under an hour's drive from the bright lights of Birmingham and equidistant from Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. The Wood Norton pocketed a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
