Elegant, simple and surprising are the words that pop up each time one wanders around the estate. Cowley Manor, a Grade II listed villa built in 1855, was once the home of Sir James Horlick, the malted-milk magnate. Nowadays its a popular destination for those seeking a break from the mundane pressures of everyday life.
One of the elements that give Cowley Manor its individuality is its eclectic interior design; with use of bold block colours and intricate patterns throughout the hotel, it's much more than just your typical stately home.
Deep in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cowley Manor is situated in a landscape straight out of an Arcadian scene from a Thomas Hardy novel.
The size of the rooms is consistent with the interior architecture of an important English country house, but the interior, an uncompromisingly modern space, has nothing to do with the heritage of the building.
Dine in a grand room with spectacularly high, colourful ceilings and gorgeous views of the grounds. The Malt Room offers a menu that promotes sustainability and uses ingredients derived from the local land to create inventive dishes that will leave you coming back for more.
A riot of colour, the funky bar also offers a sitting area and opens out to the terrace. It's the perfect place to share a glass of exquisite wine whilst watching the sunset over the glorious green hills ahead.
One of Cowley Manor's most memorable features is its magnificent holistic spa that was built to accentuate the immense beauty of the surrounding landscape. Whether you're here, in your room or on the terrace, you will have a constant reminder that you are in The Cotswolds; the place where nature and man live harmoniously in a sublime setting.
