Picture a perfect break; impossibly charming surroundings in the English countryside, a grand period country manor house, straight out of the pages of your favourite interior magazine.
Add wine, exceptional food, views of manicured gardens, acres of rolling countryside. Throw in a chic spa and instructions to do nothing but wind down. Now open your eyes, you’re in Calcot & Spa, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Step through the stone arched doorway and contemporary country living is the order of the day. Take in the impeccably designed spaces, a picture of modern rustic chic with pale wood, iconic Scandi design, exposed stonework, heavy linen and warm tones. A designer’s dream. Retire to a room with a bed seemingly designed solely with lie-ins and room service in mind.
Hit the internal ‘out of office’ button, it’s time to relax. In impeccable style, of course.
Re-opening in February, subject to government approval

Weddings at Calcot & Spa
Calcot is a wonderful retreat from everyday life – discreet and intimate, warm and welcoming. The Barn is set alongside a pretty courtyard of lime trees and ancient stone barns and stables, built by 14th Century Cistercian monks. Their charm certainly accentuates Calcot’s very special appeal as a place to marry and celebrate your big day in great style.
At Calcot, we believe that every wedding is as individual as you are and that our role is to provide you with the setting, fine food and wines, and service that is both friendly and unobtrusive. That means we listen to all your ideas, perhaps offering a few of our own, and then give you maximum flexibility to decide on table layouts, menus and wines. We will endeavour to accommodate your every wish, so that your wedding becomes a totally personal occasion.
