Ellenborough Park
Ellenborough Park


The stunning 15th century Cotswold Manor House, Ellenborough Park, is the only five-star hotel in Gloucestershire and has recently added a private Spa Garden Retreat to its many other prestigious and luxury facilities.

Our homes and gardens have become so important to us since lockdown that enjoying a garden spa is one of our favourite new things. Ellenborough Park may have been around for hundreds of years, but the new Spa Garden Retreat is very much 21st century.

The Retreat is hidden away in a secret, secluded, serene space in the private walled garden that got its inspiration from the Chelsea Flower Show.

It is approached via a honeysuckle-enriched arched walkway that can be roped off to deter anyone daring to trespass uninvited into this cloistered enclave. The alfresco relaxation zone has sun loungers, flowers and plants in borders and on the walls, garden decorations, a sauna cabin and a hot tub set under a Norwegian aluminium pergolux with louvred ceiling designed to use all year round. 

To keep hydrated, guests are provided with a jug of iced and fruited water and can also avail themselves of the Taittinger champagne from its own stylish yacht box – just five exist in the world and Ellenborough Park’s is the only one on dry land. QR codes are conveniently dotted around to allow guests to order more drinks and light bites without leaving their repose, and guests can also use the QR codes to connect to the in-house Sonos system for their own relaxing background music.

This private and personal pamper space can be booked for groups of between two and twelve people for 90 minutes. So, it’s great for an indulgent pamper party à deux to spend some quality time with a loved one or enjoy with a group of friends or family to celebrate a birthday or anniversary or just to escape the hustle and bustle of normal life.

After a relaxing 90 minutes in the Spa Garden Retreat, why not indulge in a spa treatment from an extensive menu of treatments including massages to facials; pedicures and manicures or de-stressing body rituals. Or enjoy lunch or dinner in the grand main restaurant lit by beautiful chandeliers, the more informal Horse Box Brasserie or alfresco on the lawn or in one of Ellenborough Park’s quirky carriages. 

This age-old Cotswold Manor Spa Garden Retreat spoils its guests with total relaxation and indulgence in the heart of the Cotswolds. It is also easy to find – situated just outside Southam and about two and a half miles northeast of Cheltenham town centre.
