This 14-century farmhouse just three miles from Tetbury is a real gem. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, Calcot Manor is the perfect countryside retreat for couples and families alike, with stylish rooms and over 220 acres of meadowland to explore.
Calcot Manor is appealing to both families and couples. Parents looking for a rural retreat with activities for the little ones will not be disappointed.
In summer the outdoor swimming pool and play facilities allow children to be children by blowing off steam and enjoy the sunshine, while The Mez, filled with games consoles, computers and even a small cinema, is a perfect bolthole when the weather is not so kind.
For those days when mum and dad need a break, there is also an Ofsted registered crèche.
Calcot Manor has 35 individually designed rooms. Choose the rooms and suites in the barn if you are staying with the family, of which there are 10 to choose from. Couples will prefer the peace of the rooms in the main building. Super-comfy hideaways with extra touches.
Choose a cosy bolthole made for two, or a generous family pad with room to stay and play… All of these rooms and suites are overflowing with style AND substance. Beds just made for a lazy lie-in and room service, and beautylicious bathrooms just begging for bubbles… in the tub and in a glass!
Welcome to your Cotswolds home-away-from-home.
They say the best things come in small packages. Packed with character and country style, these Cosy Rooms offer the perfect Cotswold retreat for two.
With bags of style and plenty of room, we’re talking elegant, comfortable and downright indulgent. Enjoy Cotswold style and all the modern comforts you could wish for.
These Generous Rooms are (you’ve guessed it) marvellously generous in size. Plus, they feature a few little extras. If you’re seeking somewhere rather special with more space to stretch out, these rooms will suit you down to the ground… and right up to the ceiling!
Cosy, yet spacious enough for snuggling up family -style. These family rooms are generous enough for two small guests and two grown-ups to sleep soundly in the same room.
Bring the whole clan and make the most of their Family Pads. Each one comes with an adjoining kids’ room so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Sleeping two adults and two little ones, these rooms are perfect for family adventures.
