Review: Calcot Manor, Cotswolds


Book A Stay

Calcot Manor & Spa offers stylish rooms, a sublime spa, and top-notch dining, set within 220 acres of rewilded Cotswolds countryside.


Calcot Manor & Spa is set in a 14th-century weathered stone manor house located three miles from Tetbury and amid the rolling Cotswolds hills.

Style & Character

Calcot Manor & Spa offers a gorgeous spa with an indoor pool and outdoor hot tub, an additional outdoor pool, a kids’ Playzone, and two restaurants, all sitting within its 220 acres of meadowland.


This luxury hotel has 35 modern-country-style bedrooms in the main house overlooking the courtyard and gardens and more family-orientated rooms in the outbuildings. The rooms in the main house are for couples only.  Family rooms overlook the outdoor pool. Suites are available to families or couples and are in one of the outbuildings. They come with private gardens.

All of the Calcot Manor bedrooms and suites are spacious with satellite television, magazines, fresh fruit, and biscuits. The bathrooms come fully loaded with fluffy towels, robes, walk-in showers, free-standing bathtubs, and Aromatherapy Associates toiletries. Of the family suites, Woodchester is an excellent choice, with its private garden and first-floor bathroom with two baths (see photo below).

Service & Facilities

Calcot Spa is a few seconds walk from the main house. The spa includes a swimming pool, treatment rooms, a gym, a lounge, and an outdoor hot tub surrounded by lavender and overlooks an open wood fire.

Calcot Manor is possibly one of the most child-friendly hotels in the UK, although nowhere is quite as good as Four Seasons Hampshire. Facilities extend beyond the family bedrooms to include an all-day crèche, an overweight entertainment area, a kids’ tea daily, and a special swimming pool for little cherubs.

If you get the relaxation guilts, the Manor supplies complimentary bikes for the three miles of cycles paths around the grounds, as well as tennis courts, mini football, horse riding (at certain times of the year), climbing frames, an outdoor pool, running routes and a woodland gymnasium.

Food & Drink

At Calcot, fabulous fine dining in the Conservatory restaurant or tasty gastro-pub fare in The Gumstool Inn is available. The Gumstool Inn is on-site and gives you everything you would expect from a cozy pub, from a log fire to comfy seating. It serves local real ales as well as excellent warming pub food.

The Conservatory serves dishes infused with a Mediterranean flavor from his wood-fired oven, all made from fresh, local ingredients. Offering stunning views of the Cotswold countryside from all around, you’ll never miss out on the sunshine when dining in The Conservatory. The big windows and beautiful skylights make it a restaurant experience that will lift your spirits.


I prefer to relax when I am away, to take a stroll on the grounds, to snuggle up on one of the inviting fireside sofas, to indulge in the spa, and to end the night in the hot tub with champagne under the Cotswold stars. This luxury gem in the Cotswolds will not disappoint wherever your mood takes you.
