Golfers plotting their roadmap back on to the fairways have been pointed in the direction of The Manor House for their spring and summer getaways.
With the UK restrictions set to ease over the coming weeks, there are some tempting packages to release the golfing shackles and make the most of the captivating Cotswolds.
Based in Castle Combe, Wiltshire, The Manor House is a fabulous championship-standard 18-hole course with 365 acres of breathtaking rolling countryside as the backdrop.
Designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, the mature oak and beech trees that line the manicured fairways combine with the immaculate greens and the River Bybrook meandering through the middle to bring both drama and beauty to the 6,500-yard parkland course.
Alongside the luxurious stately hotel and The Castle Inn pub which make up the estate, it’s an ideal location for a memorable golf break and an opportunity to reunite with family or a group of friends as soon as restrictions allow.
The Manor House hotel is a luxury 14th-century stately country house with a Michelin starred restaurant, al-fresco dining and a dedicated gin bar. Complete with 50 comfortable, individually styled rooms and suites – with 29 of them located in mews cottages – the hotel is full of character, charm and traditional quirky features.
The Castle Inn is a cosy 12th-century country pub which sits in the heart of the village, opposite the adjacent main hotel, offering 12 unique en-suite bedrooms and delicious homemade food. The pub is particularly popular among groups of golfers looking for more affordable accommodation and a pint or two of the local beer on offer.
Golf Club Manager, Andrew Ryan, said: “Golfers have been planning their escape from lockdown and The Manor House provides a fantastic setting for some much-needed leisure time.
“Overseas travel is still uncertain for many, but that doesn’t mean that golfers cannot explore and enjoy a different challenge, while making the most of the hospitality at The Manor House.”
Self-catering breaks, which are permitted with one’s own household from 12th April in line with the government’s roadmap, are now bookable, with Ludlow Cottage and Baker’s Cottage available for three-night weekend breaks or four-night weekday breaks from £1,000, a week’s stay starts at £1,400. The Waterfall Lodge, located by the 18th green on the golf course, is available from £129pp and includes accommodation, breakfast and 36 holes.
Packages at The Manor House hotel, between 17th May and September, start from £239pp and include bed and breakfast in a Cosy room, a £32 per person allocation to use towards dinner at The Castle Inn, use of the driving range and 36 holes of the best golf in Wiltshire. Guests can upgrade to the Michelin starred Bybrook restaurant for just £43pp.
A similar package at The Castle Inn for the same time period start from £169pp and include bed and breakfast in a Standard room, a £32 per person allocation to use towards dinner, use of the driving range and 36 holes of golf. Guests can again upgrade to the Michelin-starred Bybrook restaurant at The Manor House for just £43pp.
The above packages are dependent on government restrictions and some facilities may not be able to open straight away following the lockdown. The pricing and packages will be adjusted accordingly and there is a 48-hour cancellation policy in place to allow flexibility.
