We all need to escape from the hectic and embrace the harmonious once in a while, and you can do just that at the superb Ellenborough Park Hotel. Set amid 90 acres of stunning Cotswold countryside yet just a short distance from the centre of Cheltenham, this idyllic retreat lends itself perfectly to both days and stays that are dripping with elegance.
The world-famous Cheltenham Racecourse is within easy reach from here, while shopping in the town centre is a must for fans of retail therapy. There are picturesque walks to be enjoyed in Pittville Park, and if you’re a culture vulture be sure to visit both The Wilson and the Holst Birthplace Museum. And of course, exploring the Cotswolds is always special.
Days of decadence are sublime at Ellenborough Park, of course, but overnight stays are even more exquisite. You can unwind in style in one of the spa’s seven high end treatment rooms and there’s a terrific gym here as well. Later, you can savour some truly delicious dining in the two rightly popular eateries.

A few hours of indulgence in the hotel’s sumptuous spa is enough to put the spring back in your step and the smile back on your face. You’ll be tingling with total pleasure by the time your pampering session comes to an end.
There is a stunning list of temptations on the treatment menu, so take your pick and settle back for an unforgettable experience. And you can savour even more rewarding inspiration afterwards in the dramatic 15-metre swimming pool.
Aiming for your targets is a pursuit of pleasure at Ellenborough Park, thanks to a stunning fitness suite and a delightfully welcoming atmosphere. The finest Technogym equipment enables every visitor to create the workout of their choice.
If you prefer the wide open spaces and the fresh air, there are designated walking and jogging routes throughout the area. You can also test your golfing skills at a number of local Cotswold courses, all of which offer stunning views along the way.
One of the finest foodie experiences in the area can be cherished within the iconic oak-panelled luxury of The Beaufort Dining Room. This sumptuous establishment is perfect for special occasions when only the very best of things will do.
A more informal setting is provided by the excellent Brasserie, a place which specialises in delicious temptations amid wonderfully relaxing surroundings. And if you’re looking for the ultimate indulgence, make sure you sample the afternoon tea.
The service from start to finish in the spa was amazing. The treatments were fabulous. The venue stunning, just a shame it's a short walk outside to the outdoor heated pool, as you scurry past e.g. gardening staff and other guests walking by. I have mixed reviews about the horse box restaurant (feedback via trip advisor). The food was yummy but the timing available was a little disappointing and service varied dependent on waiter.

I stayed here as part of a babymoon break with my wife who was 8mths pregnant.
The room, food (in the Horse Box), facilities and breakfast were all excellent.
There was a mess-up in the spa as my wife had booked a pedicure that had to be cancelled, however she was given a facial free of charge as an apology.
Only other negative was that the steam room was out of order. All in all a great trip and would definitely go back!

What a wonderful spa
Booked this spa deal with SpaSeekers for a special birthday treat for my daughter. The price was incredibility competitive for the spa at this five star hotel. The treatments were good in a highly relaxing environment
The icing on the cake for me was the outside heated pool which was lovely warm and clean. Overall the facilities were great the service impeccable and the cream tea delightful. Beautiful location there is nothing I did not like about this beautiful old house which is steeped in history.
