One of the most child-friendly hotels in the Cotswolds

Ellenborough Park is the ideal venue for luxury family holidays in the Cotswolds. Nestled away in one of the UKs most sought after Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we provide a wonderful base for plenty of family fun days out and countless things to do, either at the hotel, or close by. There are picnics to eat, hill walks, 90 acres of lawns for children to play games on and an outdoor swimming pool to make your luxury family holiday as enjoyable as we think it should be.

We are located on Cheltenham’s doorstep but if you’re wanting to venture further afield, there are many attractions locally such as Sudeley Castle; a great day out for families, and a calendar of educational, musical and foodie festivals, taking place throughout the spring and summer months catering for children and adults of all ages. End your day in one of our restaurants, where children are welcome and where our friendly team will happily provide a children’s menu.
