Have you ever dreamt of exploring the breathtaking grounds and grand rooms of an historic country house? Well, thanks to the Grade II* listed Tortworth Court, that dream can become a reality. Here you can take a stroll around 30 acres of private grounds and an arboretum before heading inside to admire the building's stunning period features.
Not far from Gloucester, Cheltenham and Bristol, Tortworth Court is ideal for those looking to retire to somewhere calm after a day of sightseeing, shopping or race-going. Boasting elegance and character in equal measure, the guest rooms offer a pleasing marriage of modern comfort and timeless luxury. Be sure to be pampered at Peels Spa during your stay - perhaps take a dip in the pool, or book a facial or massage. If your visit is for business rather than pleasure, you'll find excellent conference and meeting facilities available. The hotel is also a spectacular setting for a wedding or celebration, with a variety of function rooms and the stunning Victorian Orangery available to hire.
Those not staying at the hotel are more than welcome for some wining and dining, with two bars and a restaurant to choose from. The Atrium is one of the hotel's finest original rooms and has a 60-foot-high glass ceiling. In this light and airy space, guests can enjoy afternoon tea, light bites or pre or post-dinner drinks. Brunels Bar's ornate ceiling and classic furnishings make it a relaxing setting for enjoying light snacks and a variety of beverages.
Perhaps the most characterful of all is Moreton's Restaurant, which was originally the library and retains its oak panelling, ornamental archways and an impressive fireplace, not to mention beautiful views from the large windows. Diners can expect to enjoy starters such as pigeon breast, melon and cucumber salad with hazelnut dressing, and mains like roasted duck breast, creamed Savoy cabbage and Lyonnaise mash - accompanied, of course, by a glass of quality wine from the carefully chosen list.
