If you didn’t think the Cotswolds – that quintessential hilly and green slice of the English countryside – could get any more idyllic, try soaking up the area’s serenity from a hot tub, champagne in hand. Whether you choose to visit Chipping Campden or Moreton-in-Marsh, the Cotswolds is full of peaceful, charming English villages – not to mention luxurious hotels with a growing number of private jacuzzis. Here are our picks of the best hotels with hot tubs in the Cotswolds – bookable with Culture Trip.

Tewkesbury Park, for all-inclusive luxury near Cheltenham

Nestled between Cheltenham and the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Tewkesbury Park is an all-inclusive hotel and spa in the heart of the western Cotswolds. Family-run, this extraordinary complex houses a spa and fitness centre that includes a pool, hot tub and treatments, and an 18-hole golf course on the site of the Battle of Tewkesbury (1471). Its 93 plushly furnished rooms feature quality Hypnos beds, Instagram-ready views and, in the Opulent Historic Suite, high-quality, handcrafted retro furnishings.

Beaumont House, for a manor stay in central Cheltenham

Looking for a Cotswold lodge with a hot tub, king-size Hypnos beds and plenty of other luxuries, all wrapped up in a picturesque manor house? Look no further than Beaumont House. Built in the 1850s of Cotswold stone in the centre of the spa town of Cheltenham – a fashionable retreat since the 18th century and the most complete Regency town in Britain – the Beaumont is a beauty. For a touch of tropical-themed pampering, opt for the Out of Africa suite.

Cotswold House Hotel and Spa, for a stay in a Regency townhouse in Chipping Camden

A honey-gold Regency townhouse sets the tone for a blissfully restorative Cotswolds escape in picturesque Chipping Campden. Stroll through gardens of scented cypresses and neatly clipped hedges to the old coaching house, now transformed into a swish spa with a hydrotherapy pool, steam room and treatments such as vitamin-glow facials and personalised essential-oil massages. Private whirlpools beckon from your terrace in the hot tub suites.

The Greenway Hotel and Spa, for a centuries-old manor retreat in Cheltenham

Wandering around this elegant 500-year-old country manor outside the Regency town of Cheltenham, you will inevitably be tempted by the sparkling Elan Spa – with original-period wood beams, exposed brick, moody lighting and a heated hydrotherapy pool. Best of all is the outdoor hot tub on a private terrace – perfect with a glass of Veuve Clicquot. The Mini Spa Day package includes a blissful Espa treatment, pool and hot tub time, and afternoon tea. Graceful country styling extends to the rooms, where you can lay your head in an antique four-poster bed with Cotswolds views.

Charingworth Manor, for a private outdoor hot tub in Chipping Camden

The story goes back 700 years at history-packed Charingworth Manor, near Broadway and Chipping Campden – TS Eliot once stayed here. Settle into the Cotswolds lifestyle with a soak in your private outdoor hot tub – just two rooms of this kind – and a trip to the seductive spa, which has a heated pool, a sauna and a steam room infused with eucalyptus oil. In the evening, roam the expansive grounds and feast on daily-changing Gloucestershire-rooted delights such as wild-mushroom risotto and pan-fried sea bass.

The Manor House Hotel, for superb on-site dining in Moreton-in-Marsh

In lively Moreton-in-Marsh, the gold-tinged Manor House started life as a sumptuous 16th-century home. Walled gardens extend beyond the art-filled, smart-casual mansion – afternoon tea or cocktails on the terrace, overlooking the 300-year-old mulberry tree, are a highlight, as is the respected modern-British Mulberry Restaurant. Our top pick of the plush rooms – all with Molton Brown toiletries – is the self-contained Apple Cottage, with its own secluded terrace and hot tub.

Ellenborough Park, for old-world charm in Cheltenham

Another Cheltenham jewel, this elegantly modernised, gold-stone 15th-century manor blends oak beams, stained glass, antique furniture, original fireplaces and other charmingly historic goodness with bright contemporary design. In the tranquil spa, you’ll find a sauna, steam room and hot tub, not to mention luxury Elemis treatments such as the Couture Touch. The outdoor pool, bordered by cheery flower beds, stays warm all year. Grab a house-special G&T in the pub-bar, and then linger over inspired British-French cooking by the fire, all a stone’s throw from Cheltenham Racecourse.

Dormy House, for an award-winning spa in Broadway

Built from a 17th-century stone farmhouse, uber-stylish Dormy House is part of the rambling Farncombe Estate between Broadway and Chipping Campden. The romantic Rose Cottage delights with a hot tub on the patio, floral-feast decor and exposed wood beams – or go for a Scandi-chic hot tub courtyard suite. But the award-winning spa steals the show, with its candlelit infinity pool, juniper-infused sauna, salt steam room, al fresco hydrotherapy hot tub and tempting treatments starring Temple Spa and Natura Bissé products. Dining highlights include market-fuelled picnic hampers, vegan afternoon teas and gourmet tasting menus.
