Managed by the Forestry Commission, the internationally recognised Westonbirt Arboretum is a 15 minute drive from the hotel off the A433. Here you will find a fantastic location for playing, walking, relaxing and learning about nature and its species. Throughout the year live concerts are also held here as part of the Forest Live programme. For more information visit the Forestry Commission website.
The golden Cotswold stone of this charming manor – originally a farmhouse – creates an atmosphere of solidity and tranquillity.
The outbuildings have been transformed to complement the main house. Calcot Spa, with its pool, sauna, steam room, gym and hot tub, offers a wide range of treatments. A medieval barn has been restored to create The Barn at Calcot, a self-contained venue for weddings and business meetings.
With a wealth of interesting places surrounding Calcot – the historic city of Bath, the ancient wool towns of the Cotswolds and the Cotswold Way footpath, the hotel is a perfect place from which to explore. Antique-hunting in nearby towns can absorb many enjoyable hours, as can walking or relaxing by the pool or a log fire.
There are two restaurants at Calcot: the pub-style Gumstool Inn and the elegant Conservatory Restaurant, offering very different dining experiences.
Calcot warmly welcomes families with children, and special facilities are offered to ensure their comfort and entertainment while not intruding on the enjoyment of other hotel guests.

Christmas & NYE
Christmas & New Year at Calcot
Discover your country side this Christmas and let us take care of all the details! Enjoy three days at Calcot & Spa—your very own country house retreat—and indulge in whatever you like… wonderful food and drink, sublime spa treatments, fresh air… and celebrate the season with us!
Christmas Eve – A very special Calcot Christmas begins on Tuesday 24th December, when we welcome our guests with tea or coffee, Christmas cake and mince pies in front of our roaring log fires. Then join us in the drawing room for a pre-dinner glass of fizz followed by dinner in The Conservatory. Later in the evening, there’ll be a visit by local choristers for a spot of carol singing. For those wishing to attend Midnight Mass, we can arrange that for you, followed by warming hot toddy and scrumptious mince pies on your return!
Christmas Day – A very Merry Christmas begins with a Champagne breakfast, enjoyed either in The Conservatory or in the cosy comfort of your bedroom whilst still in your PJs! The spa will be open between 10:00am to 1:00pm.
Then, let the feasting begin! A fabulous traditional Christmas Lunch will be served from 12 noon until 2:30pm in The Conservatory. Then open a few more presents, take a cheeky nap or, for those feeling a little more energetic, we can recommend some lovely walks to revive your appetite for the evening… an informal candle-lit buffet served in our very own pub, The Gumstool Inn. Boxing Day Do as much (or as little!) as you like on Boxing Day, whether it’s a lazy lie-in, a visit to the spa or, if you feel like going out to play, a clay-pigeon shoot in our grounds (ask the reception team for details). We’ve 220 acres of gorgeous grounds to explore and can point you in the direction of some idyllic Cotswold villages and walks, including the magical Westonbirt Arboretum, just 10 minutes away. There are also some first-class watering holes in the area. Our very own Village Pub at Barnsley, near Cirencester is highly recommended… even if we do say so ourselves!
Your final evening with us begins in style, with a Champagne reception followed by dinner with some specially selected wines.
Lunch will be available in The Gumstool Inn and The Conservatory Restaurant on Boxing Day, but this is not included in the price of the break. Guests are advised to reserve a table in advance.

We’ve also bought a bit of Vegas to Calcot, so try your luck on the tables in our in-house casino, especially created for the evening! The casino is just for fun only, so no money is needed, as we’ll supply a number of chips to each guest.

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.
