It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Cowley Manor, with the return of its holly jolly Christmas offering.

Guests are invited to eat, drink and be merry at the Cotswold hotel, which was named SGGLA Hotel of the Year 2021, tucking into Christmas-themed afternoon tea or getting together with friends and family for a festive feast.

With roast turkey and cranberry finger sandwiches, scones with brandy butter and mince pie toasties, the festive afternoon tea menu is a seasonal favourite at Cowley Manor, with Christmas tea parties returning to the restaurant this December 2021.

Revellers can mistle-toast the holiday season too, with the option to add a glass of mulled wine or bubbly to their afternoon tea.

Or experience the full glitz and glamour of Cowley by hosting a festive gathering at its restaurant – with private dining options for those looking to host larger scale Christmas parties.

Diners can tuck into roast bronze turkey or steamed beef pudding, with vegetarian and vegan options including a chestnut, sage and onion polenta cake. The desserts are deliciously decadent, too, whether you fancy a cheese board or want to keep it traditional with a Christmas pud.

And for those seeking the ultimate Cotswold Christmas escape, there’s the opportunity to spend Christmas Day at Cowley Manor – arriving on Friday 24 and departing on Monday 27 December 2021.

Spend a relaxing Christmas weekend at the boutique hotel, indulging with champagne afternoon teas, festive dinners and winter walks through its glorious 55-acre gardens surrounded by Cotswolds countryside.
