The traditional country house hotel goes all contemporary chic at 30-bedroom Cowley Manor, where a stately exterior belies the cool, modern design and relaxed vibe within. Set in 55 acres of
glorious Cotswold parkland, the estate is dotted with meadows, woods and lakes. The 16-seater Private Dining Room and 50-capacity Garden Room both open out onto an expansive terrace, while the
Private Sitting Room, with LCD screen, offers an informal breakout space for up to six delegates. To add to the laidback feel of the place, there is a crowd-pleasing all-day dining menu which
focuses on seasonal, local produce. There is also a bar and billiards room, a high-end spa with a gym, four treatment rooms and gorgeous indoor and outdoor pools. The property is available for
exclusive hire all year round, with discounted rates available in the winter (between October and March).
