A hidden oasis in wonderful Cheltenham

Lakeside Manor

Shhh… don’t tell everyone.

Keep this little gem to yourselves!

When you close your eyes and think about a luxurious and grand manor house, this is what you will imagine. Sitting in seven acres of spectacular gardens, with a private lake and an Italian walled garden, the house looks simply stunning. And, best of all, it is not miles away up difficult to access country roads, but it is a secret hideaway right in Cheltenham itself. With twelve individually-designed guest rooms, six wonderful function rooms, including the West-wing Ballroom that can hold up to 250 people, the opulent multi-room Rock Bar featuring a vintage-style jukebox and games room and private club room, this is a property to savour. And it can be hired exclusively for you and your family, friends or colleagues. But best of all, our staff can attend to your every need allowing you to get on and enjoy yourself.

Victorian opulence in a fantastic location

This is just the place to relax and forget the hustle and bustle of daily life. The lounge areas are designed to be cosy and relaxing while still exuding opulence and grandeur. You are bound to find a comfy place to read a book, and area chat with friends over a coffee, somewhere to play cards or just have a gentle afternoon snooze after a heavy lunch. The dining rooms and function suites are dazzling with their grand oak panelling set off by the welcoming open fireplaces. The ballroom is perfect for large parties to celebrate a special event or hold a corporate product launch, with the dining room providing the perfect setting for a more intimates meal for all the guests. With 150 years of fascinating history, if walls could talk they would relate many an interesting tale. And located to the thriving town of Cheltenham, gateway to the Cotswolds, this is a great place for exploring the beauty of this wonderful area.

Sleep in luxury

There are twelve luxurious double bedrooms, each differently designed but all finished to the highest standard with unique furniture, modern facilities and top-drawer service. The Manor Suite has silver décor and a magnificent king-size four-poster bed. As well as the en suite there is an adjoining parlour and a balcony that is just perfect for morning tea. Then there is the a formal luxury suite with a dark oak king-size four-poster bed and matching furniture. With views to both the Italian Garden and the main garden avenue, it too has a balcony. The third room has another king-size ornately carved four-poster bed and a marble bay-window bath. The adjoining parlour can serve as a dressing room or as a linked single bedroom. Room four is a beautiful double room with a large en-suite bathroom and a large window with views to the south. Room five reflects simple French elegance with its wrought iron bed, half panelled walls and stylish period furniture. And in complete contrast, room six reflects Colonial America with its elegant four-poster bed and Queen Anne furniture. It has en-suite bathroom and an interconnecting parlour with a single bed and a roll-out bed option for those with a young family. The next room with its gold-painted furniture and four-poster double bed has the air of a stylish 1920s Hollywood mansion. Room eight is bright and refreshing: aqua and cream tones mixed with traditional dark oak. Room nine brings a touch of the Orient and Room ten evokes a cosy cottage atmosphere. And, of course, there is WiFi throughout.

Let’s start with breakfast: continental choices include cereals, yogurts, juices, pastries and breads. The Full Cotswold Breakfast is our variation of the ‘Full English’ but with produce sourced from as many local suppliers as possible! And our King’s Breakfast features smoked salmon, cream cheese, bagels, waffles, pancakes with icing sugar and maple syrup. You’ll need to book this one in advance! And in the evening, whether you want a huge banquet or a family meal, we have the team on hand to do it. Indeed, we pride ourselves in our attention to detail and we can help you have the dream Cotswold experience.

Do as much – or as little – as you want

The house is such a fantastic retreat with so much to do that you may never want to leave its intoxicating charms for the duration of your stay! And why should you? Stroll round the magnificent grounds, enjoy a good book, have a game of pool or play table football, get back to a more relaxing era with a family board game or a game of charades. But if you do venture outside, away from the house there is so much to see and explore. You may never journey beyond Cheltenham with its shopping, theatre, racecourse, festivals and so much more. Explore the many top class restaurants or just immerse yourself in the vibrant café culture. But beyond that you have the 800 square miles of the fantastic Cotswolds to discover. Historic Buildings to explore; horse riding, cycling and walking to enjoy; gardens to cherish. And no matter how many times you have been, there is always something new to experience.
