LuxeGetaways Magazine – Fall 2016 | Ellenborough Park is a 15th century manor house located in the heart of the Cotswolds, adjacent to the famous Cheltenham Racecourse. The hotel boasts a world-class spa and gourmet restaurant, and is comprised of 60 large bedrooms and suites designed by Nina Campbell. “More than just a view” is a term commonly used to describe the Cotswolds. The region is famous for its picturesque views and limestone villages, but also presents lively cultural and sporting events, festivals, quirky shops and a wealth of pubs and restaurants.

Ellenborough Park is the quintessential countryside getaway, where guests enjoy English elegance, lavish amenities and a wide range of activities. The hotel has all of the best features of an award winning country house hotel – an extensive wine cellar, Indian-themed Spa and swimming pool. This luxury Cotswolds destination hotel also has its own private access to the famous Cheltenham Racecourse, which is the host to eight steeplechase races per year. The Great Hall is a picture-perfect location for Afternoon Tea, and is a daily affair not-to-be-missed when enjoying time at this countryside estate. In addition to limited edition tea occasions throughout the year, the iconic cakes and sandwiches are perfect compliments to their list of black, green, white, herbal, oolong and even homemade infusion teas, such as hot ginger and fresh mint.
