An outstanding address on the outskirts of Cheltenham, Ellenborough Park is an immaculately restored, sumptuous Cotswold-stone manor, parts of which date back to the 15th century. In the 1830s, it was home to the Earl of Ellenborough, former governor general of India – the influence of his travels is visible in the Great Hall and Minstrels’ Gallery. Legendary British designer Nina Campbell has reinvented the interior, with 61 classically-English bedrooms furnished with antiques, rich fabrics, heavenly beds and roll top baths. There’s an outdoor pool which is heated all year around, and an intimate spa, as well as a private path leading to Cheltenham Racecourse. Food is contemporary, serving British classics with a twist. Spring and summer months see an al fresco dining delight in quirky dining carriages, decked Cedar Pavilion and sunny Taittinger Terrace. Guests can enjoy a glass of house Champagne from the converted horse box trailer bar while watching the sunset across the racecourse. Dogs are very welcome, with treats and their own wash area – The Paw Spa.
