Hatherley Manor is an attractive 17th Century manor set amidst a 37-acre parkland estate – surrounded by mature gardens, a walled garden and an orchard – in the heart of the rolling Gloucestershire countryside.
Gloucester’s historic city centre is 3 miles away and the Regency spa town of Cheltenham is a 6 mile drive; the hotel lies between the two, offering guests the very best of Gloucestershire.
It is rumoured that Hatherley Manor was built for the illegitimate son of Oliver Cromwell; however, the history of the site stretches back much further, to the time of Edward the Confessor.
Executive and Feature rooms offer charming heritage, many with original features, such as oak panelled walls and period fireplaces; all offer free Wi-Fi, LCD TVs and 24-hour room service.
