Colescomb Manor Hero 1

Colescomb Manor Heart of England

A luxury Cotswold hideaway to capture your heart

Colescomb Manor is a historic, golden-stoned manor in the heart of the Cotswolds. It stands at the end of a tree-lined driveway, hidden deep within a 2,000-acre estate, close to the Regency spa town of Cheltenham. Embodying the very essence of Cotswold charm, this 500-year-old country house has been lovingly refurbished and is now available for exclusive rental.

Step through the Lutyens porch and spread out among the four reception rooms, where tasteful design goes hand in hand with home comforts for a truly magical experience. Let the music follow you via the Sonos sound system as you discover the bespoke bar and enjoy a glass of wine from Colescomb’s cellar; the kitchen, with every appliance you could ever hope for; or head to the friary wing to the gym, where you can work out, before heading to the house spa.

Step from the house spa to spend sunny afternoons around the sheltered, heated outdoor pool, dipping in and out the of the hot tub, sauna and cold plunge pool. Make time for a wander through the beautiful four-acre gardens - designed by celebrated British horticulturalist, Gertrude Jekyll and overlooking the peaceful English countryside.

After a barbecue at the outside dining area, or dinner in the magnificent medieval-style banqueting hall, followed by a game of pool or a movie in the club room, retire to the sumptuous bedrooms, where most of the bathrooms are ensuite and one even has its own in-room roll-top bath.

Colescomb Manor is a romantic Cotswold escape, the perfect setting for a country house party with your friends and family.

There is a highly skilled private chef that lives in separate accommodation on the Estate, who works together with talented wait staff to ensure the smooth running of the house (additional charges apply). Prior to confirming a booking, we will work with you to create a staffing plan to make your stay a truly memorable experience.
