The 30 bedrooms, housed in the main house and the stable block, are unique and colourful, with handmade furniture, contemporary artworks and spacious bathrooms. Enjoy the panoramic views over the gardens and lakes from your private terrace.

Food and facilities

The spectacular restaurant has high ceilings, oak panelled walls and stunning views, and has a distinctive British menu that utilises organic and seasonal ingredients in its dishes, such as Wye Valley asparagus and Dorset crab. The bar is the perfect spot for snacks during the day and cocktails in the evening, and has a fireplace to cosy up by when the sun goes down.

Activities at Cowley Manor

Cowley Manor has an award-winning spa with two spectacular pools, one indoors and one outdoors, where in the summer you can chill out on a sun lounger and order a refreshing drink from the bar. The spa also has four treatment rooms offering a range of therapeutic treatments, which make the most of the natural spring waters and herbs in the manor’s gardens. There’s also a billiard room and a colourful lounge, where you can order a treat from the all-day menu and savour the panoramic views. Doors open on to the terrace, which wraps around the house, with the gardens beyond. Take a stroll to watch the swans gliding across the lakes and visit the 13th century church that sits in the grounds. In the summer, enjoy a picnic and catch a visiting Shakespeare production. Further afield, visit the spa town of Cheltenham and the charming Cotswolds villages of Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water.
