Description: Ellenborough ParkEnjoying a magnificent location on the edge of the Cotswolds, just outside Cheltenham, Ellenborough Park is situated in a magnificently restored and maintained historic country mansion, originally built in in 1533.

Ideally placed for relaxing visits to Cheltenham, the hotel adjoins the racecourse and has a private access shuttle for guests on race days. All of Cheltenham's attractions - theatres, festivals and conference centre, along with many of the Cotswold's most beautiful towns and villages, are all within easy reach. On site, the hotel boasts a heated outdoor swimming pool, plus a fully equipped spa area, with a sauna, spa Jacuzzi pool, steam room, and seven treatment rooms for an extensive range of massages and therapies.
The proud holder of three AA Rosettes, the oak panelled Beaufort Room is a fine dining restaurant, offering unique menus created by executive chef David Kelman, based on the finest locally sourced ingredients from the Cotswolds. For more informal dining experiences, guests can choose the Brasserie, which features an excellent country house menu.
