Contemporary Country House With The Cotswolds Warmest Welcome
Set high on an escarpment overlooking the Severn Vale this 45 bedroom country house hotel lies between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and Regency Cheltenham. Hatton Court provides the right balance between traditional hotel service and all the benefits you would expect from a contemporary hotel. The Tara Restaurant is renowned locally. It is an ideal place from which to explore the Cotswolds.
Hatton Court is a reassuring size; not large and impersonal, nor too small.
As a former splendid Cotswold home the feeling is of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand
Nothing is hurried. The reception is very much a lounge, with leather sofas, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush.
The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service, is complimented by the thought that has gone into creating the Tara restaurant.
Warm soft furnishings balance the picture windows that allow you to take in the broad horizons beneath the escarpment to the Malvern Hills and the Severn Estuary.
The peace of the surrounding countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a goodnights sleep ready for another day exploring the Cotswolds.
The Tara Restaurant at Hatton Court
With large panoramic windows that take full advantage of the breathtaking views of the Severn Vale and the distant Malvern Hills, the spectacular location of The Tara Restaurant is matched with genuinely warm hospitality, fine food and an extensive selection of wines.
In summer months you can enjoy alfresco dining on the terraces or just simply enjoy an aperitif and canapés, coffee and petit fours, or a glass of champagne as the sun slips behind the distant hills. During the winter, log fires roar in the reception and lounge, the perfect spot to indulge in a fine Vintage Port or aged Cognac.
Fully refurbished in late 2009 the natural colours and soft lighting make a relaxing environment for friends and relations to enjoy each other’s company. Private dining facilities are available in the equally well appointed Cotswold Room.
The Tara Restaurant is open every day for hearty English Breakfasts, Morning Coffee and Cakes, Lunch, gloriously indulgent Afternoon Teas and candlelit Dinners. Traditional delicious roasts served every Sunday Lunch. Non residents are particularly welcome.
