This wonderfully restored Georgian country house offers the perfect retreat either for a quiet, luxurious weekend, or bring the house to life with festivities and party celebrations. Step through the classic entrance doors to Ewelme Manor and discover this beautiful Georgian home.

Designed by Anthony Keck in 1760 and once a 'Coming of Age' present to the late William Purnell, Ewelme Manor is the architect's earliest identifiable Gloucestershire country house, also closely associated with Highgrove, Berkeley Castle and Rodborough Manor to name just a few.

The perfect house for entertaining in style, with a superbly equipped kitchen, the Aga, with companion, warming the heart of the home, numerous impressive reception rooms, all with magnificent period open fireplaces, and a recently added outdoor pool complex with cinema room, provides a more contemporary 'spa like' feel and an additional entertaining area.

Start your day by taking morning tea under the verandah by the fountain. Enjoy a long, leisurely lunch with family and friends under the pergola on the south facing patio, overlooking the pool. Sip a cocktail before dinner in the study infront of the open fire and then dine with style in the 17th century dining room. Alternatively, you could just cosy up on a feather sofa in the 'snug' with the flickering flames of the woodburner, or settle down infront of a movie in the cinema room - the choice is yours to make.

Take the time to unwind in one of the marble-clad bathrooms in an elegant roll top bath before retiring to your choice of spacious bedrooms, sumptuously furnished. The perfect end to the perfect day!

Ewelme Manor even offers a 'feature bedroom' that your children will love!

With a huge variety of local attractions and sporting activities and entertainment, it makes Ewelme Manor the ideal choice for adult and family celebrations alike, steeped in English History and classic Cotswold charm.

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds, also known as 'The Heart of England', are the hills and valleys that make up the two famous counties of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, drifting into the boundaries of some of the neighbouring counties. Literally translated as "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides",The Cotswolds is an area characterised by attractive small towns and villages built of the underlying, famous golden coloured Cotswold stone. In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous as it still remains today, and some of this money was invested into the building of churches so the area has a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". Designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the rolling hills and hidden valleys hide picturesque villages, period Rectory's and Stately Homes nestled amongst, without a doubt, some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Home to the Royals and with the famous cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Bristol on the doorstep, the area offers something for everybody - outdoor pursuits, scenic walks, city thrills or extreme sports. From the serenity of walking the Cotswold Way to a day out at Cheltenham Gold Cup, you won't be disappointed!


The house is situated in an elevated position with far reaching views across the Uley Valley, in a conservation area and a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The famous 'Cotswold Way' walk is directly outside the gates and if you prefer walking, a gentle stroll into the local town takes less than 8 minutes with all your local amenities at hand . There are a huge amount of local activities available to suit a wide variety of interests from relaxing to the more extreme sports, and many historical places of interest if you're looking for culture. From 'Highgrove' to 'Cheese Rolling', you'll find plenty to entertain.

"Fabulous house ideal for special celebrations"

Family and close friends helped me celebrate my 50th birthday last weekend. We all had a fantastic time, the house was beautiful and the owners went above and beyond to ensure the weekend was extra special.I would fully recommend this venue to anyone who is planning a party or special event it was really lovely.

"Idyllic week in the Cotswolds"

we spent an idyllic week in the Cotswolds with our extended family and friends to celebrate Mum's 80th Birthday. Ewelme Manor is perfect for such an event and our stay was made extra special by little touches like flowers in the rooms and a birthday gift for my Mum on her arrival. The house is exactly as advertised and the pool, gardens and outdoor area is wonderful allowing kids of all ages to find their own amusement. There are great walks from the house and the local pubs and excellent butcher in town gives options to dine out or cook in the well equipped kitchen. While we didn't meet Candida during our stay she was available to answer any questions and has provided an information pack of good pubs, walks, restaurants in the area and is happy to provide any local advice to help make your stay more enjoyable. We would not hesitate to recommend Ewelme Manor to anyone looking for a place to host a families get together, it is perfect. Candida, everyone had a great time - thank you again Best regards Steve and Karen Taylor

"70th Birthday / Family Reunion"

This beautiful luxurious house was the perfect venue for our special family reunion on my birthday. A huge thank you to Candida, Simon and Kristina for their help in organising everything and all the lovely extra little touches such as roses and slippers on the bed, chocolates on the towels for the kids and even a bottle of champagne and flowers on arrival. The heated pool was a huge hit with all the children, gorgeous garden and plenty of space inside and outside for everyone. Would love to return - will be recommending to everyone. Thank you again!q

"Magnificent Family Home"

The owners of this property were very helpful in accomodating our large family group which varied in age from 5 weeks to 90years!They made it very welcoming with lovely extras such as fresh flowers ,chocolates and champagne for the birthday duo, and freshly laundered bathrobes for all guests. The self contained unit by the pool was ideal for my aged parents - large walk in shower- all on one level -with lovely views- close enough to the kitchen(which is very well equipped) and main house and able to enjoy lovely entertaining area around the pool. The young children loved the large garden with trampoline and the pool. Dining Room is magnificent and seated 20 adults for celebratory dinner. The house has lots of character and is well situated for exploring places such as Tetbury Cirencester and National Trust properties. Sainsburys and other supermarkets are a 5 min drive or within walking distance and we used very good outside caterers for our main dinner.

"Luxery in every corner."

I must say that everything was considered in this manor house. We had twenty guest for my husband's 50th birthday celebration and everyone was accomodated in style. The details and decor made everyone feel like they were being pampered. The gounds were great for exploring and kept everyone entertained in spite of the bad weather. We enjoyed it so much we are thinking of making it an annual family get away.

"The perfect house-party feel"

We had a fabulous and memorable weekend and having Ewelme Manor as the venue played a major part in its success. From the outside the building and its grounds are genuinely beautiful, and inside it's pretty much perfect. The rooms are light and airy with a comfortable drawing room and dining room (16 for dinner was no squash at all) and the kitchen diner is simply stunning; a great deal of care had clearly been taken over the contemporary design. We used all 9 bedrooms available which were a pleasing mix of Cotswold tradition and modernity. Our visit was in early spring so a little chilly for sitting outside or swimming, but the look had us all dreaming of summer parties. It was a 10/10 winning experience.

"Incredibly gorgeous, stunning and homely all at once - a perfect glam party pad"

We all thought the house was utterly wonderful; gorgeous decor and facilities - there was literally a room for every necessity! We had a lovely time in the cinema room watching a film and sipping cosmopolitans, had an amazing catered dinner by candlelight in the formal dining room and enjoyed wine tasting in the sumptuous drawing room. Utterly perfect place for a party with friends or family alike. Thank you so much to the owners for making it so wonderful for us all.

"Awesome family get together, fabulous place for a weekend house party"

Family arrived from across the UK and Ireland to this wonderful house. A warm welcome from the owners, who showed us round and made us feel so welcome. Surprised me with a bottle of champagne, chocolates and flowers for my 60th birthday. By the time all 12 guests had arrived and chosen their bedrooms we were well settled for a fun weekend. Lots to do in the surrounding area, Slimbridge wildfowl park, Berkeley Castle, Stroud farmers market, direct access from grounds for walking the Cotswold way to mention just a few of the things we did. We self catered one night and then used one of the recommended caterers for dinner on Saturday, just great. We paid a bit extra for a hot tub which was wonderful in the chilly afternoon with yet more champagne for some. We didn't get round to using the cinema room or the table football, maybe next time. Candida and Stephen the owners made the booking process really easy and provided lots of info before we arrived. The house is even lovelier than it looks in the photos, and there is so much space we never felt crowded and there was always a peaceful space for those who needed to escape from the chatter for a while. Just wonderful. Beautiful decor, comfy beds, lovely feather duvets. Would love to visit in the summer to use the swimming pool and BBQ and outside dining area. Highly recommended.

"Exactly what we were hoping for"

Booked Ewelme Manor for a long weekend for my wife's 65th birthday to celebrate with 18 friends and family. Ewelme Manor turned out to be exactly what we were hoping for. A grand home with nine well appointed individual bedrooms with great character. We wanted to be able to have formal dinners in a beautiful setting which the dining room and lounges provided. Candida recommended Mint Catering who were excellent and Kristina provided great help on behalf of the owners. The kitchen was very well appointed and had everything we needed. Ewelme Manor is a house full of character and a quirky style which we loved.
