Whatley Manor and Spa in Wiltshire has become the latest luxury property to join the prestigious Pride of Britain Hotels consortium.
Set in a 19th century Grade-II listed Cotswold manor house, Whatley Manor holds five AA red stars and joins Pride of Britain’s collection of luxury, independently-owned UK hotels.
The property is home to 15 bedrooms and eight suites and has recently appointed Niall Keating as executive chef of its two restaurants, The Dining Room and Grey’s Brasserie.
There are also two bars and three lounges.
The hotel’s Aquarias Spa includes a hydrotherapy pool which extends outdoors, a tepidarium with heated stone recliners, salt scrub showers, a thermal suite with a caldarium, steam grotto, laconium (dry heat room) and sauna.
The spa features ila’s ‘beyond organic’ treatments and is the first hotel in the UK to have a permanent Natura Bissé Pure Air Bubble Suite.
A major attraction of Whatley Manor is its 12 acres of garden, many parts of which are based on the original 1920’s plans. The gardens are divided into 26 distinct areas, featuring both woodland and pretty herbaceous borders.
The hotel also boasts a 40-seat private cinema and offers many active pursuits in the surrounding area, from horse riding to go-karting and hot air balloon rides.
