Luxury country house and spa resort found on the edge of the Cotswolds
Situated just outside of the small Wiltshire town of Cricklade, the Cricklade Hotel itself is found on the 30 acre grounds of a picturesque country estate.
Visitors to the property, found between the towns of Swindon and Cirencester, can enjoy a wide range of recreational facilities as well as comfortable and well-decorated bedrooms, all surrounded by tranquil, natural green spaces and landscapes.
The hotels 46 guestrooms are all equipped with en-suite bathrooms, whilst colour television, trouser press, hair dryers, telephone, radio, and beverage making facilities come as standard. Views from inside the rooms look out over the hotels terrace and on to the Vale of Cricklade and the Wiltshire Downs.
Before dining, guests can relax in the hotels bar and luxurious conservatory lounge with its splendid views of the region. Here informal dining is served throughout the day, whilst a range of beers and cocktails can be enjoyed. For something a little more formal, the hotels dining room restaurant serves us a variety of hearty, traditional European meals made up of organically sourced produce. The Snug offers a third location for guests to relax, this time in a far more informal manner.
Elsewhere in the hotel guests are able to enjoy the Beauty Source, a spa service offering extensive treatments fit for queens and princesses. An indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, solarium, and gym are all on the menu for those looking to enjoy an enhanced dose of well-being, whilst massages, pedicures, and the likes are provided by fully trained staff.
The Cricklade Hotel grounds also host a nine-hole golf course which can be accessed by guests for a nominal additional charge. The registered short course offers an enjoyable and competitive set of holes for novices and high-handicappers alike. Its not a bad way to unwind either as the course winds around the picturesque grounds. Those that fancy something a little more energetic may enjoy the tennis courts.
Indoors the hotel also houses a ballroom and library, for varying degrees of entertainment. Whilst the library makes for a quiet locale to see away the day in peace and quiet, the ballroom can be a lively venue. The room accommodates any kind of celebratory event, from weddings to business weekends away.

For those fancying a little break from the hotel, the town of Crickdale offers a traditional high street, a few picturesque parks, as well as a number of buildings of historic interest. For those looking for something slightly more raucous, the town of Swindon is readily accessible using the A419. To be honest though, such is the peace and tranquillity offered by the Cricklade Hotel many wont feel the need to depart.
