Malmesbury Abbey

An ivy-clad manor house hotel in the southern Cotswolds, with an acclaimed spa and innovative dining – includes breakfast, dinner and a suite option

Housed in a Grade II listed building, and part of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection, this 19th-century manor house has been transformed into a boutique hotel that’s rich in charm and character – and has a Pride of Britain Hotels accolade to prove it. Behind its ivy-clad façade, Whatley Manor is home to 23 individually designed accommodation, an award-winning spa with a hydrotherapy pool, lounge bar and a duo of restaurants, including The Dining Room, serving up modern British dishes with innovative East Asian and French twists.

Set in the southern Cotswolds town of Malmesbury, this beautiful abode is nestled among 12 acres of garden-dotted grounds and overlooks the rolling Wiltshire countryside beyond – perfect for walking, jogging and cycling (hire bikes are available). Throw yourself into the quintessential English lifestyle with a spot of clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, polo lesson or round of golf, or perhaps take to the skies to soak up the picture-perfect vistas from a hot air balloon.

Nearby, a string of chocolate-box Cotswolds villages are ripe for exploration, from the historic abbey of Malmesbury and the quaint boutiques and antique shops lining Tetbury, to Castle Combe – a knot of picturesque streets and honeyed buildings earning the title of ‘Prettiest village in England’.
