At the beginning of the month, I was very lucky to be invited to visit the Costwold House Hotel & Spa along with other wedding planners and bloggers.
Set in two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens this grade II Regency luxury townhouse, in the heart of Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, makes for the perfect location for your Civil Ceremony, Wedding Reception or special occasion. The hotel is available on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis.
The hotel has a warm, friendly and personal feel. On arrival I was checked in earlier than expected and my bag (it was heavy!), kindly taken to my room.
The room itself was modern, light and airy but with traditional features such as wooden beams. There are 28 air conditioned en-suite bedrooms at the hotel with most providing fabulous views out onto the manicured gardens or the pretty high street. There are luxurious suites available for the bride and groom.
Food & Drink
We were served a glorious afternoon tea with a wide selection of tea to choose from and 3 tiered stands with miniatures cakes, scones and smoked salmon sandwiches.
In the garden there is a charming gin bar where we enjoyed gin from local business Cotswolds Distillery,
I was lucky enough to dine in the 2 rosette awarded restaurant Fig. We were served a 5 course tasting menu and it was simply gorgeous. I thoroughly enjoyed each course and can imagine that the wedding and special event catering at this venue would be of the same very high quality standard.
Wedding & Event Spaces
There are two rooms available for us for weddings and events:
The Montrose is a lovely light-filled room with a pitched roof and beams seating up to 90 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast and 120 for an evening reception.
The Fig restaurant encapsulates the original Regency Manor House but with contemporary decor. This room can seat up to 45 for a ceremony and 30 for a wedding breakfast.
The hotel boasts a beautiful spa in a separate garden through the pretty gardens. There is a full menu of treatments available, a hydrotherapy pool with jacuzzi and relaxation area, an aromatic steam room and relax room, retail area and changing facilities. All guests are offered complimentary robes, towels and slippers on arrival. Complimentary Herbal Teas can be taken at your leisure. I loved the sorbet I was given after the treatment – very refreshing!
Chipping Campden is a quintessentially English Cotswold town. It really is stunning! There are some fabulous businesses on the high street who can cater for your wedding or event including:
www.thebaytreeatcampden.com – Flowers
www.louisepocock.com – Millinery
www.aneatabootedesign.simpl.com – Silver smith
www.robertwelch.com – Luxury cutlery and tableware
I had a wonderful stay at the Cotswold House Hotel & Spa. The staff were incredibly helpful and gave great customer service, the room was comfortable, the spa relaxing and the food exquisite. If you are looking for a boutique hotel to hold your wedding or event, look no further than this hidden gem of a venue – you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Craig and Mandy!
