Golfers searching for a summer staycation can combine thrilling golf, luxurious accommodation and exceptional dining options with a visit to the country’s ‘prettiest village’, Castle Combe, home to The Manor House.
Voted the UK’s prettiest village by FBM Holidays, golfers can whet their golfing appetite in Castle Combe with a range of stay and play packages available from £140 per person, per night.
The Manor House is renowned as an exceptional destination for avid golfers with some of the most idyllic scenery which can be seen on an English golf course, in addition to the Michelin starred Bybrook restaurant and The Castle Inn, recently crowned number 37 in Estrella Damm’s Top 50 Gastropubs.
The delightful championship-standard 18-hole course is immersed in the enchanting surroundings of the Cotswolds, with 365 acres of breathtaking rolling countryside as a backdrop.
Designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, the mature oak and beech trees that line the beautifully manicured fairways, together with the immaculate greens and the River Bybrook meandering through the middle, bring both drama and beauty to the 6,500-yard parkland course, which is rightly considered one of the best in the south west.
The Manor House hotel is a stately 14th-century country house full of charm and traditional quirky features. 50 comfortable, individually styled rooms and suites can be found across the estate which includes a picturesque row of cottages.
The Castle Inn is a cosy 12th-century pub which sits in the heart of the village, opposite the adjacent main hotel, offering 12 unique en-suite bedrooms and delicious homemade food. The pub is particularly popular among groups of golfers looking for more affordable accommodation and a pint or two of the local beer on offer.
Golf club manager, Andrew Ryan, said: “We are fortunate to be located in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, which is perfect for golfers looking to get away for some well-needed time on the course and relaxation during the warmer, brighter summer months.
“Our parkland course offers a brilliant challenge for golfers of all abilities. Our dedicated team across the golf club, hotel and gastronomy work tirelessly to ensure that golfers experience the finest offerings in every area of their stay.”
