Ultimate staycation aboard the ‘cruise ship on land’ with 337 bedrooms

Established last year, Heythrop Park looks to capitalise on the ‘staycation’ trend, which has seen Brits preferring to ‘holiday at home’.

For those who fancy a cruise-like getaway without leaving the country, the Heythrop Park estate, located just past the Gloucestershire border in Enstone, Chipping Norton, is worth a look.

The Grade II listed, 300-year-old hotel, revitalised in 2022 with a £40 million investment, provides half-board breaks that include indoor and outdoor activities, a top-class spa, plenty of walking grounds, and live entertainment, all at no extra fee.

The hotel houses 337 bedrooms, each with windows and a view. Its assortment of lounges and staircases adds to its charm. Evenings at Heythrop Park offer a range of entertainment options, from West End-style performances to intimate shows in the Theatre, or live music in the Late Lounge.

For meals, guests can choose between the buffet-style Market Kitchen and the Brasserie32 restaurant. An afternoon tea with panoramic views of the Cotswold countryside is also available.

Daytime activities include archery, rifle shooting, and laser clay outdoors, along with quizzes, cooking demos, and tasting sessions indoors. A cinema room, games room, and several bars, lounges, terraces, and reading rooms keep guests entertained.

The hotel’s 440 acres house an 18-hole championship Baimbridge golf course and a driving range. The spa and leisure facilities include outdoor hot tubs, a relaxation room, sauna, steam room, thermal suite, and a gym, offering a variety of classes.

Matt Williams, head of activities and entertainment at Warner Hotels, said: “In the UK, it can be hard to find space to create a resort similar to those abroad, but at Heythrop Park we benefit from acres of land to fill with activities and a large manor house for lounges, entertainment, and restaurants to make sure our guests get real value for their money.

“Whether our guests’ idea of fun is getting up to as much as possible, or they simply want to have a relaxing getaway the choice is theirs. While we won’t be setting sail any time soon, the ‘cruise ship on land’ is ready and waiting to welcome guests aboard.”
