From the talented team behind the Parisian-borne Experimental group, they have transformed what was once a fairly garish country house hotel into a thing of pure beauty. Located near Cheltenham, Cowley Manor Experimental is everything a weekend getaway should be; palatial living in a countryside setting with two pools, a C-side spa with sauna, steam and relaxation room and a celebrated British chef cooking up a storm in the kitchen. In fact, there’s nothing this hotel can’t do (families are also warmly welcomed offering babysitting, kids menus and children’s swimming times).
Spend your days sitting by the lake with a picnic at your feet, take an audio tour of the gardens or enjoy their outdoor cinema in the summer months. There’s tonnes to do locally as well from exploring distilleries for gin tastings or visiting all the local wildlife at Cotswold Farm Park.
