The feeling that this grand 14th century manor house, surrounded by its park-like grounds, imparts as you arrive at the impressive front door carries through to the beautifully maintained rooms within.
If the walls could talk, there would be tales of William Morris, Mark Twain, Frank Millet, Henry James, Edward Elgar, Oscar Wilde and John Singer Sargent. Their histories are intertwined with that of Abbot's Grange, and it comes through strongly.
The owners, Topsy and Richard, were gracious hosts in their magnificent home.
Topsy's sister, Faith, could not have been more helpful and informative.
The bedroom was beautifully furnished and comfortable, as was the great hall with its massive fireplace, and the dining room where the superb breakfasts were served.
A memorable place. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the lea of Broadway hill and standing in a little over eight acres of parkland grounds and gardens you will find the romantic Cotswold hideaway, Abbots Grange. Secluded, yet only 2 minutes walk from Broadway's 'picture perfect' village high street with its delightful array of independent boutique shops, restaurants and inns. This magical, award winning monastic manor has all the comforts you would expect from an AA five gold star 'highly commended' guest house. Bedrooms are equipped to a high standard with four poster beds, flat screen TVs and seating areas. Our premium accomodation, the magnificent Elizabethan Suite and Abbots Chambers can be booked directly through the Abbots Grange web site. Beds in all rooms and suites are dressed with the finest Egyptian cotton sheets to ensure a blissful nights sleep. Thick, fluffy white towels, bath robes and complimentary toiletries complete the en-suite bathrooms. The oldest dwelling in Broadway, Abbots Grange was built in about 1320 as the summer manor for the Abbot of Pershore. There are over 700 years of history to absorb here, perhaps while you unwind in front of the roaring log fire over afternoon tea... or by candlelight after dinner? Breakfast at Abbots Grange is a celebration of all things local. Served in the panelled dining room at the round table, you will find a mouth watering selection of fresh berries and seasonal fruits. Local sausages and smoked bacon together with Cotswold free range eggs. We offer a delicious vegetarian full English breakfast alternative, artisan baked breads and pastries from our own bakery - Huffkins - together with freshly brewed 100% Arabica coffees and loose leaf teas. ... more less
