Ellenborough Park, where luxury, elegance and Cotswold history abound. Lose yourself in the distinct luxury of Ellenborough Park, a sumptuous Cotswold manor house hotel in The Cotswolds, situated on the outskirts of Cheltenham Spa. The main house of the estate dates back to the 15th Century when it was erected from iconic Cotswold stone, steeping the manor in layers of history and intriguing tales. Ellenborough Park is a quintessentially British destination, with a single streak of individuality inspired by Lady Ellenborough herself, Jane Digby. Jane married Lord Ellenborough at the height of her fame as a dazzling character who took 19th Century English society by storm with her striking beauty and scandalous behaviour. Grand but without pretentiousness, Ellenborough Park has become synonymous with country retreats and romantic breaks.
Ellenborough Park has been restored to contemporary glory in recent years, elevated to five-star appeal with casual and contemporary restaurants, a dual-level spa influenced by Indian wellbeing, as well as ongoing in-house and specialist training for staff to deliver exemplary service and leadership across every aspect of the hotel. David Kelman is Ellenborough Park’s multi award-winning executive chef, renowned amongst hotels in Cheltenham for his championing of the Cotswold larder in his menus for The Brasserie and 3 AA Rosette Beaufort Dining Room.
Mitch Duncan, the architectural photographer, was able to capture the luxury, tranquillity and classic simplicity of two of the guest suites named after famous racehorses, namely Istabraq and Kauto Star.
