About

History is never far away in Stratford-upon-Avon. But after time spent walking in the footsteps of the Bard, head to a place that has just as much historical wow-factor as Shakespeare’s Birthplace itself. More than a hotel, the Welcombe Hotel is a spa and golf resort that’s an architectural landmark in its own right - and it’s just a gentle 20-minute walk from the centre of the Warwickshire town.

If you’re planning an occasion when only the best will do, the Welcombe Hotel will be the venue of your dreams. Sweep up the winding, tree-lined drive to the fairytale mansion. With all the romantic appearance of a grand Jacobean palace, it’s set in 157 acres of stunning grounds with formal Italianate gardens, a lake and a waterfall. But what makes it even more special is that it’s an exceptionally rare 18th century example of a calendar house, with seven entrances (days of the week), 12 fireplaces (months of the year), 52 chimneys (weeks) and 365 windows (days of the year). 

Stop counting for a moment and step inside. Grand on the outside, inside it’s a masterpiece of luxury, from the sweeping staircases and twinkling chandeliers to antique oil paintings and huge marble fireplaces. Luckily, leisure facilities are every bit as abundant as the period features, thanks to an immaculate 18-hole golf course, tennis courts and a well-equipped gym.

Enjoy memorable fine dining at The Trevelyan restaurant, or settle in for the night sampling the local gin at The Trevelyan bar. But the star of the show has to be the opulent, Roman-themed spa. You’ll be tempted to spend all your time here, unwinding with a Temple Spa or Elemis ritual or revelling in the warmth of the 15-metre swimming pool, Swedish sauna, steam room and outdoor vitality pool.

If you do decide to leave the comfort of your fluffy robe, adventure awaits. Explore the grounds, or take a longer walk through the Welcombe Hills and Clopton Park Local Nature Reserve to reach Stratford-Upon-Avon on foot. Here you can enjoy a boat trip along the River Avon, see a play at the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre, visit Warwick Castle or head to Stratford Butterfly Farm. Or just simply spend time foraging the antique shops, boutiques and local markets for treasures  to take home.

But when you’re tired of shopping and seeing the sights, the Welcombe hotel will be there to welcome you. With 85 opulent bedrooms, including self-catering apartments and suites with four-poster beds, this magical mansion makes the perfect venue for any occasion - whether it’s a spa weekend with the girls, a golfing trip with old friends or an intimate getaway for just the two of you.

The Spa & Wellness at The Welcombe Hotel, Best Western Premier Collection

The Romans knew a thing or two about spa-going. And after a day spent sightseeing in Stratford-upon-Avon, there’s nothing more relaxing than revelling in the Roman-themed surroundings of The Welcombe Spa. Housed in the hotel’s former stables, this exquisite haven blends the magic of contemporary facilities with all opulence of ancient thermal rituals, for an experience you won’t forget.

Go on a thermal journey Julius Caesar himself would envy. From the warmth of the laconium to the invigorating chill of the ice fountain and polar shower, each element is designed to invigorate your senses.

Wallow in the 15-metre indoor pool, bask in the warmth of the Swedish sauna, then embrace the mist of the steam room. If you’re here with a group there’s an outdoor vitality pool with room enough for all of you. Then retreat to the thermal loungers and curl up with a good book.

Dedicated treatment rooms offer a tapestry of decadent spa therapies. Sink into this sumptuous sanctuary to enjoy Elemis and Temple Spa face and body treatments, alongside manicure, pedicure, and beauty treats to pamper and polish you from head to toe.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll arrive at this beacon of indulgence feeling frazzled, and leave feeling so much lighter and brighter.

The Gym & Fitness at The Welcombe Hotel, Best Western Premier Collection

Whether you're a fitness fanatic or just want to stay active during your stay, smashing your cardio goals is no sweat at The Welcombe Hotel. At its well-equipped gym, you can hop on one of the Peloton bikes for on-demand and live classes.

Get a top-to-toe workout with free weights, resistance equipment and power plates. Hit the treadmill to work up an appetite for your afternoon tea. Or just head to the exercise studio for a group class - fitness is much more fun with friends.

But should you wish to venture out, you’ll find plenty of ways to work up a sweat in the fresh air. Sporty types can meet their match on the tennis courts, or swing by the beautiful 18-hole golf course for a round. 

Just make sure you bring your walking boots because the hotel has 157 acres to explore, with hikes through the Welcombe Hills and Clopton Park Local Nature Reserve a particular favourite.

In summer they fling open the patio doors to the al fresco terrace so you can see the countryside panorama - see if you can spot the wild deer.

The Trevelyan Bar

Lovely spa day! Pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were great. Massage was lovely. Afternoon tea was average (not enough choice of sandwich fillings, scones chewy, cakes good).

Fabulous time at The Welcombe! Standard of facilities was first class and staff very friendly. Facial was best I’ve ever had. My only ‘gripe’ was the pool was too cold for me and the coffee was quite tepid and no facility to make it hotter. Otherwise, lovely time and would certainly go back.

Lovely spa was fairly busy though as nearly all beds round pool taken. Pool water bit cold, outdoor pool was warmer. A few things not working, Foot spas, Warming loungers. Hot shower controls need attention. Sauna, steam rooms and salt rub room to use. Take your own locker padlock as no locks on lockers. Light lunch was not available at spa, only at hotel, so had to get dressed, but it was lovely sitting out on terrace for lunch. Seemed a bit short staffed. Lovely view of gardens and saw some deer. Actually only place to sit outside as nowhere by spa building, but worth doing as gardens so nice. Cream tea was nice, two scones with cream and jam, tea or coffee. There was a gym, was air conditioned, but didn't use it. We did have an issue arriving due to huge roadworks being done, road was one way, which is a 20 minute diversion to go round! We were not aware of this until we arrived, so arrived late.
