In the rolling hills of the Cotswolds lies a beautiful, family-owned country house hotel boasting recently refurbished luxury accommodations. Stylish and comfortable, there’s also an award-winning golf course, a spa to unwind, and 360° breathtaking views of the Malvern Hills, the Cotswold escarpment and the Severn Valley. With an array of facilities for everyone, including your furry four-legged friends, Zoey Phoon explores what makes Tewkesbury Park the perfect, peaceful staycation in the Gloucestershire countryside, away from the Big Smoke.
Tewkesbury Park, Cotswolds – Hotel Review
With 93 bedrooms, all with stunning views and premium features, Tewkesbury Park mixes rustic and vintage with pastel and neutral colour palettes across the interiors, plump beds and soft linens make for a perfect night’s sleep. From family rooms to historic suites to dog-friendly rooms, pampered pooches are also welcome, kitted out with memory foam dog mattresses, food and water bowls, and patio doors that lead straight onto grassy areas.
The Deerpark is Tewkesbury Park’s 6,554-yard, par 72-course golf course set in stunning parkland with panoramic views, water features, cross-cut fairways, veteran oaks and well-drained manicured greens. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or someone who’s just starting out, the wide range of golf facilities can cater to your needs.
For the more leisurely, there is a hot tub, sauna and sun deck – or book into the spa, fully loaded with Natural Spa Factory products from Bath, for head-to-toe pampering (but book ahead to avoid disappointment). There are in-room bundles to bring the spa to you, too – or if you’re looking to break a sweat, there is also a gym and an indoor pool.
All about relaxed and informal dining in comfortable surroundings, Mint at Tewkesbury Park serves delicious, locally sourced and seasonal, home-cooked dishes. For those who want a cheeky nightcap or indulgent afternoon tea, the cocktail bar and lounge are ideal. By day, wind down on the plump, comfy sofas and tuck into a tempting tower of sandwiches and cakes with bottomless tea and coffee.
THE FINAL WORD
A quick escape to the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Tewkesbury Park puts leisure at the heart of staycations, with a luxurious wellness centre and beds that make you sleep like a baby.
