Calcot & Spa – Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire
Calcot suits many occasions – honeymoons, family gatherings, spa breaks, country weekends – with equal success. With roots going back to the 14th century, the present stone manor became a hotel in 1984. Since then, the surrounding farm buildings have been revived and brought into appropriate play over the years: Calcot is brilliant at moving with the times and this year sees a fresh new look for both The Conservatory Restaurant and The Barn. Today, it has 35 rooms, refreshed and reinvigorated, a gorgeous spa,The Barn for private events, an Ofsted registered crèche and two restaurants. Rooms in the manor house are designed with couples in mind, while family rooms and suites are in converted cottages and barns; deluxe suites have their own private garden. As well as the open-fire cooking of The Gumstool Inn, the hotel’s principal restaurant, The Conservatory, cuts a scintillating dash for an occasion. The sweeping, open-plan space is a buzzing, easy-going, all-day arena, witha diverse menu to match.
