Expect a friendly and relaxed atmosphere at this stylish country-house hotel. With its tasteful Farrow & Ball-painted walls, Chesterfields and other comfortable furniture, it's a perfect bolthole for recharging the batteries. We loved the local artworks, fresh flowers and real fires in winter.


The owners and the rest of the staff offer welcoming yet unobtrusive service. Glewstone Court is licensed for both weddings and civil ceremonies and can be booked for exclusive use. There's also plenty of parking.
