WHY WE LOVE IT...
Calcot Manor is located in the Cotswolds amidst 220 acres of classic Cotswold countryside. The hotel has 35 bedrooms located in the main building overlooking the courtyard and beautiful gardens and includes a number of different types of rooms (from £199 per night) as well as a number of family rooms which are located around the main hotel in what must be old converted barns. The Conservatory restaurant in the main house is a light and spacious restaurant overlooking the Calcot grounds, and serves simple but very tasty food. The Gumstool Inn is their very own village-style pub adjacent to the main house, complete with open fire, our fireside grill and serves proper British pub food. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, restaurant and bar.
the spa & MORE
The facilities are top notch, with a pool, gym, sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub (which had a number of people in it enjoying a glass of wine!) and includes 7 treatment rooms.
There is also a tennis court available and bicycles available to use free of charge to explore the local surroundings and further afield and a woodland gymnasium. There is also a crèche open from 9:00am – 5:30pm (excluding lunch 12:30pm – 1:30pm) so you can relax completely even if you are with your family.
EATING & DRINKING
Having visited Calcot Manor recently for a mini break we were instantly taken with the relaxed but professional service we experienced. Upon arrival the staff instantly made us feel at home and we were very happy with the room we had chosen in which the decor was of the highest standards. The surrounding countryside is stunning and we did not delay in taking advantage of the Spa (we had pre-booked before arriving as it is extremely popular) and it did not disappoint! On the first night we opted for the main dining room and feeling relaxed from our massages we were ready to sample the rest of the hotel so we headed for the bar where they had a whole wall dedicated to just gin! The menu was exceptional and made it hard to choose! We opted for the Seared Scallops, baby fennel and brown shrimps and the Iberico Ham with Toasted Venetian Almonds followed by Seared Hake Fillet and the rack of lamb, both of which were cooked to perfection. This was followed by a very spoiling cheese trolley.
