Huge Cotswolds manor becomes luxury hotel and private members club

A large new luxury hotel and private members club in the Cotswolds is upping the glamour stakes with a cave cellar featuring 5,000 bottles of wine and a 3,000 sq m Roman-inspired spa, due to open this autumn 2023.

The man behind the reinvention of the iconic Gleneagles, has launched his latest big reveal — a 108 bedroom rural retreat on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Sharan Pasricha, the CEO of Ennismore, has transformed a Grade II-listed landmark house set on a 60-acre estate, surrounded by over 3,000 acres of parkland, into a playground for discerning travellers.

Part private members club and part luxury hotel, Estelle Manor is the countryside companion to Mayfair's exclusive private members club Maison Estelle, tucked away down an oak tree-lined driveway close to Burford. 

The hotel greets guests with four restaurants; 108 vintage-dressed bedrooms with self-care mini bars; an outdoor 25-metre swimming pool; a living room and library; a lifestyle gift shop; and a whole host of outdoor activities from foraging to falconry, and axe throwing to archery.

There's also the manor’s cave cellar to explore featuring more than 5,000 bottles from 1939 through to the present. 

A 3,000 sq m Roman-inspired bath house and spa, Eynsham Baths, is also in the pipeline.

Hidden in an ancient woodland, the baths promise sculpted columns and carved marble details with a vast tepidarium bathing hall, five pools, a relaxing lounge, and 10 treatment rooms, including couples’ suites and thermal cabins.

There will also be an open-air hideaway and bar with a hidden pool and a cascading waterfall surrounded by natural wildflowers and woodland ferns, when it opens later this year.

Members have access to their own private clubhouse complete with a gym, studio, padel courts and workspace, with the addition of their own hair salon by the end of the year.

Described as a ‘hosted home’ it claims to uphold old school values of personalised service and discretion.
