The spa's the star at Cowley Manor
Just a 10-minute drive from Cheltenham, this Italianate country house sits in sprawling parkland. With its extensive grounds, funky decor and wacky bar, Cowley isn't your typical country manor. It's the place to be during summer, when it hosts a cool and totally original outdoor cinema season. Tuck into a plate of BBQ food, enjoy a drink then get cosy beneath the stars on the top lawn with movies like Romeo & Juliet and Pretty Woman. The spa and its many holistic treatments are another way to relax.
Enjoy a day out in Cheltenham
This attractive spa town has lots to explore, including the ornamental Pittville Park and Pump Room, and Cheltenham Racecourse, where you can take to the skies in a hot-air balloon as well as having a flutter on the horses. In the evening, catch a show at the Everyman Theatre. Whether you're into stand-up comedy or West End musicals, it caters for all tastes.
