If there’s one village in the UK that has gained notoriety for its picturesque scenery, it’s the leafy village of Castle Combe in the Cotswolds (and if you’ve not seen it, then a quick Google of ‘the most beautiful village in England’ should do it). The Manor House fits in with the charming theme that runs throughout the area, as this 50 bedroom venue looks like something out of a fairytale with its ivy covered exterior, extensive but immaculately kept grounds, and union jack flag waving proudly upon arrival. However the beauty of this venue is more than just skin deep, as beneath the surface is a world of spa treatments, fine dining and event spaces perfect for getting groups together.
Boasting a Michelin starred restaurant, headed up by Executive Chef Rob Potter, guests can enjoy a 6 course tasting menu with an optional wine flight, in either the main restaurant space or in a choice of private dining rooms, where you can decide on anywhere between a space for 200 people, or something a little more intimate for just 10 guests. There are a variety of rooms on offer, along with beautiful terraces so that you can admire the grounds whilst you dine. To help take the guessing work out of organising, there’s a dedicated events coordinator to advise what will work best with your vision, from drinks and canapes, through to the table setting and and what food to put on the menu. Whether you’re after something informal in one of the multiple rooms available throughout the hotel, a quaint afternoon tea, or a lavish celebratory meal at the critically acclaimed Bybrook, there’s an option for every occasion here. Expect locally grown, seasonal produce, that is unfussy but considered, and will leave its mark in your memory for years to come.
