New £2.5m Spa and Fitness for English Calcot Manor

The historic hotel in Gloucestershire has confirmed it will be opening a new å£2.5m spa and fitness facility in April 2003.

Calcot Manor will see a 17,000 sq ft, brand new building housing a spa and gym designed by Corporate Edge.

The spa will have seven treatment rooms, presenting beauty treatments by Aromatherapy Associates and Guinot, plus a hammam and dry flotation tank, sauna, steam room, relaxation space and sunbed area. An enclosed courtyard garden will boast an eight-seat hot tub and external log fire.
The development will also include a 16m swimming pool and children’s pool, plus a fitness suite equipped by Technogym.

Hailed as one of the finest country house hotels in England, set deep in the Cotswold Hills,Calcot Manor, has been in private ownership since its conversion to a hotel in 1984 and has remained under the watchful eye of Richard Ball ever since. The hotel prides itself in maintaining a happy balance between formality and friendliness, and the warm courtesy of staff together with the complete tranquility of the country setting certainly seem to achieve this.

This is a major development in the hotel’s history. The 14th century courtyard, flagstones and English oak remain, but the original cottages and outbuildings have been converted into bedrooms. Each has its own en-suite bathroom, some with whirlpool baths. All the rooms are beautifully furnished and many are located in the main house. A number of cottage suites have also been created for the needs of families. Calcot has two restaurants, tennis courts and croquet lawn, with attractions in the surrounding area ranging from historic sites to golf courses and wildlife parks.


Set in stunning countryside, amid rolling fields and with a history spanning centuries, Calcot Manor retains all the character of a handsome farmhouse while providing the fine levels of service that has won us many accolades. Calcot has enjoyed a place in history since the time of William the Conqueror when the Hamlet of Calcot was first documented in the Doomsday Book of 1066.
