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 rooms offer free Wi-Fi, LCD TVs and 24-hour room service.
