Ellenborough Park

Winter City Break

A stunning 15th-century manor house in glorious parkland, Ellenborough Park is Gloucestershire’s only 5-star hotel, just a few miles outside Cheltenham and right on the gateway to the Cotswolds. This peaceful 90-acre country estate has original stone flags and wooden beams, glorious vast open fireplaces that speak to its rich history and 61 luxury guest rooms, each designed by Nina Campbell.  Guests can take afternoon tea in the Great Hall, choose from a rich menu of sumptuous dishes in The Restaurant, or dine alfresco in the Cedar Pavillion Tent and the hotel’s quirky dining carriages – fittingly reflecting the equestrian influence of neighbouring Cheltenham. 

The hotel has a small Elemis spa and an outside pool, a beautiful space for wedding receptions and events and a Boot Room from which guests can borrow a wax coat and a pair of  Dubarry’s in order to explore the nearby rolling countryside. Dog-friendly rooms make it the perfect countryside retreat for the entire family.

Nightly rates at Ellenborough Park start from £299 inclusive of VAT and breakfast based on a Cosy Double room sleeping two people. For more information please visit https://www.ellenboroughpark.com

Winter City Break

Following the success of Hotel Brooklyn Manchester’s opening in 2020, and with over 20 awards under its belt, the inclusive, super-friendly Brooklyn brand is expanding to Leicester, with a new opening on July 4th 2022. Like the Manchester hotel, Leicester will be inspired by the New York Borough, with an industrial aesthetic, impressive atrium and exposed brickwork. The hotel will have 191 bedrooms, and The Lair will be the hub of the hotel, with an open-plan bar, restaurant and vibrant living space. True to the Brooklyn brand, superb design and access for all and careful thought to anyone needing special care will be at the centre of the hotel’s philosophy. As with Manchester this hotel really does push the boundaries for what a hotel should be offering as ‘the norm’ across all of its facilities, and will be a key hotel opening for next year – watch this space!

Nightly rates at Hotel Brooklyn start from £99  on a B&B basis. https://hotelbrooklynlei.co.uk/
