Fabulous Cowley Manor sits in the Cotswold village of Cowley, just under two hour's drive from London and within easy reach of Cheltenham and Cirencester.
There is a wonderfully laid-back vibe to the hotel with a real focus on comfort and, surrounded by over 50-acres of rolling parkland, it's a place to really get away from it all. Rooms are very spacious and stylishly designed, featuring bespoke furniture and fabrics from top British designers.
The award-winning on-site C-Side spa is a sight to behold with both indoor and outdoor pools and some fantastic treatments on offer - perfect if you're looking to pamper yourself. And the Malt restaurant and bar are incredibly inviting places to retreat to at the end of a hard day's relaxing.
Cowley Manor is very child-friendly with the Exceptional Rooms offering plenty of space for extra beds. There are also lots of games to keep little hands busy and dedicated children's swimming slots at the C-Side pool.
There are also a couple of pet-friendly rooms available and the property is available to hire for weddings.
Design, location and brand are important but it’s all about service. Luxury is about the service being right, that you don't want for anything - you've got everything you need at your fingertips. You decide you want something, you call and the team here will arrange it for you. It's about the experience that you have that makes you come back and feel that you really understand a place better. That's the trick of travel, the trick of life philosophically – it’s about filling yourself with experiences.

The wood-panelled Malt restaurant at Cowley Manor serves delicious British food for lunch and dinner and there is also a private dining room which seats 14. A new menu has a focus on local and organic ingredients and was created by a team passionate about real food and flavours.
Snacks are also available throughout the day at the bar, which also offers a special children's menu.
Each of the 30 rooms at Cowley Manor is modern and unique, designed by outstanding British Designers. The en-suite bathrooms are large, light and spacious. Half of the rooms are in the main house with the other half enjoying the privacy of the stable block.
Relaxation is the order of the day at Guests have plenty of options during their stay. You may choose to take tea on the beautiful outdoor terrace, relax in a hammock or wander the Grade II-listed grounds. An impressively well-stocked bar is just the place for a cool drink and there are plenty of places throughout to relax and unwind.
Cowley Manor is home to the multi-award-winning C-Side Spa which has been cleverly sunk into the landscape and uses its own line of products sourced from sustainable natural resources. You can enjoy some time in the gym, relax with a treatment, swim in one of the heated indoor or outdoor pools or enjoy a session in the sauna or steam rooms.
The hotel is close to a number of historic and cultural attractions, including the gorgeous market town of Chipping Camden which is just under 40 minutes' drive away and, of course, Cheltenham.
