HALLMARK HOTEL THE WELCOMBE
The stunning 157 acres of landscaped grounds surrounding the hotel. There's also an 18-hole championship golf course, a recently refurbished spa and charming four-poster bedrooms.
Sizing it up:
The Welcombe is a brilliant all-rounder, a 19th-century former country mansion house, with 4* facilities including 78 bedrooms and seven apartments, varying in décor from fabulously historic to tastefully modern, offering plenty of choice and variety to suit.
Dinner is served at the Trevelyan Restaurant, a romantic setting overlooking the idyllic gardens. Menus feature modern British and European cuisine with regional produce, prepared with flair, passion and imagination. A selection of bar snacks and traditional afternoon teas with sandwiches, homemade scones, jam and clotted cream are also available throughout the afternoon.
Location and grounds:
Superbly located for exploring Stratford-upon-avon - just a short stroll and you’re in the heart of town, or it's just a short drive south to the picturesque Cotswolds - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous towns and villages in England.
A good time to visit:
