This grand, Grade II Listed Queen Anne country house stands upon 10 acres of well-tended grounds and boasts magnificent views that sweep out across the Worcester countryside and across to Wales. The Elms Hotel & Spa in Worcestershire is the kind of place that conjures up all those wonderful images of a quintessentially English country house.
The 18th century building holds on to its rich historic past with charming period features – ornate cornicing, carved oak fireplace in the hall, sash windows and the stained glass rotunda all vie for your attention. But its not only these fascinating aspects that make The Elms at Abberley so special; accompanied by a cosy, family friendly atmosphere, award winning restaurant and contemporary spa, this has become one of the best Cotswolds hotels for anyone seeking sophistication in a relaxed environment.
This isn’t a hotel just for romantic occasions, everyone is welcome here, even guests of the four legged kind. Children will love to explore the enchanting gardens or enjoy a game of croquet and tennis. They also have a dedicated children’s menu.
Don’t be deceived by the grand exterior of the building, there is no stuffiness here. Inside, the cosy Lounge invites you to sink into oversized armchairs by the fire or perhaps indulge in a spot of afternoon tea with friends, while the Library Bar is filled with books and leads onto the terraced garden and orchard.
Great food and drink is at the heart of the hotel, with the 1 AA Rosette Brookes restaurant delivering British seasonal dishes created from locally sourced ingredients and produce sourced from The Elms kitchen garden. The extensive wine list also ensures the perfect accompaniment for your meal.
Tucked inside a timber framed and glass building behind the hotel, The Elms Spa is a true oasis of calm with contemporary and luxury facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, cedar wood sauna, thermal suite and fitness suite.
