Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, 9miles NE of Gloucester, 33miles SW of Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Spa & Leisure
Positioned amongst carefully tended gardens complete with their own bubbling brook, not to mention the wider context of Gloucestershire, the spa and leisure facilities at Cheltenham are designed for peace and harmony (and a little working out) in this postcard perfect part of the world. As a result there is a gym with fitness classes available, a 15-metre pool for some well deserved me time, a sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzi.
The spa sits a little separately from the leisure facilities, providing a cocoon of wellbeing bedecked with Decléor and Jessica product lines that deliver head-to-toe treatments from facials and massages to manicures and pedicures in a stylish and restful environment.
Hotel & Accommodation
Less than two miles from Cheltenham town centre, DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham dates back to 1848 and retains its Georgian exterior. After a £4.5m makeover in 2017 however, inside it is sympathetically revamped to include contemporary interiors. There are 148 light and airy bedrooms with large windows looking out onto the grounds, and it is an environment well-deserving of its four-star status.
Serving continental breakfasts and sumptuous dinners, The Lakeside Restaurant is a contemporary restaurant characterised by a fusion of natural furnishings and brightly colour accents. Meanwhile, lighter meals, afternoon teas and drinks can be found in the Lilley Brook Bar and Lounge.
