The Prestbury House

The Prestbury HouseThis 300-year-old large country guest house is in gardens and grounds beside Cheltenham Race Course, with en suite rooms, outstanding breakfasts and a location close to some of Cheltenham's best restaurants and bars. Just 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from central Cheltenham, Prestbury House has clear views of the Cotswold countryside, including nearby Cleeve Hill, the regions highest point. With croquet on the lawns in summer, and log fires in winter, Prestbury House mixes traditional relaxation with more modern facilities. Flat-screen HD TVs (with SKY) are in every bedroom and there is free Wi-Fi access throughout. Opposite is an award-winning restaurant, the Royal Oak, dating back to the 17th century. Rated by both the AA and Visit Britain as a 4-star Guest Accommodation, the Grade II listed Prestbury House keeps the feel of an historic private home. Each room is different, with family photos, pictures and many stories to tell.

The 14 rooms at Prestbury House are split between the main house and its 400-year-old coach house. All have en suite bathrooms. Whilst all have the same modern comforts, each room is different and personal, as you would expect from a family home.

Hotel details

The Capel family lived at Prestbury House for 300 years, before the current owners bought the house and turned it into a hotel. With a rich history, the house was famous during the English Civil War and has a few ghost stories to keep you entertained. Prestbury House has Category 1 Access status, with 3 bedrooms on the ground floor (there is no lift). Highland Cattle and Golden Guernsey Goats wander the hotel grounds. You can watch them either from the hotel garden or the rear car park. The car park is large and secure, and there are even full facilities for up to 3 aircraft - just in case you want to bring your helicopter!
