Calcot is one of the UK's top child friendly hotels and there is such good reason. Calcot manages to combine style and luxury with informality in a gorgeous 14th century English farmhouse, set on a glorious 220-acre estate. Offering a wonderful blend of child friendly activities, superb food and places to relax for the parents, including a to-die-for spa, this truly is the perfect retreat for a happy and relaxed family break.
Rooms & Suites
The rooms are situated in a converted barn set around a pretty courtyard in front of the main house. All are individually decorated and extremely comfortable with plenty of space for little ones to explore. The Generous Rooms are spacious in size with enough room for beds or cots as required and The Family Pads come with an adjoining children’s room with mini beds or bunks. For an added splash of luxury The Generous Family Pads and The Tetbury Suite are designed over two floors with two separate bedrooms and a private garden.
Those Little Extras
Each family room is provided with a baby box holding all of the essentials including bottle warmers, sterilisers, changing mats, nappy bags and bottle-brushes. There are also in room fridges are in rooms to store milk as well as grown up beverages! If there is anything you have forgotten just ask – this hotel won’t leave you stranded.
All family rooms have a baby monitoring service linked directly to reception allowing you to take dinner later if you should choose. Alternatively, baby-sitting can be arranged using The Playbarn team or members of the hotel’s nanny network at a cost of £10 an hour (paid directly to the sitter).
Child Friendly Facilities
Calcot is not just ‘child friendly’… they’re fully geared up for smaller guests. The Ofsted-registered purpose-built crèche, The Playbarn is a fun environment for kids to play in while you relax and have some time to yourselves. For the older kids (aged 8+), The Mez is an Aladdin’s cave with PlayStations, Wii consoles, Xboxes, computers and even a 12-seater cinema. So, you won’t have any complaints if you book them in for a few hours - in fact, they might not want to leave! Alternatively, you can explore the outdoors with activities like tennis, football, disc golf, Segway, cycling or simply head off on foot - there’s plenty of room for outdoor mischief in their 220-acre backyard. Also, throughout summer there is an outdoor heated pool as well as the indoor one that has a dedicated toddler pool alongside it. Children can use the indoor spa pool between 3.45pm and 5.15pm during the week and 8.45am and 10.15pm at weekends.
Sample the fabulous childcare options and take some time to unwind in Calcot Spa with its 16-metre pool, sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub, exercise studio, tennis and treatment rooms providing a wide range of therapies to relax, rejuvenate or energise. There is also a brilliantly equipped gym as well as fitness trails should you have the inclination.
From afternoon teas and lazy lunches, to full-on feasts and celebration dinners, Calcot is a favourite with lovers of great food. Choose from elegant yet laid-back dining in The Conservatory, or first-class, better-than-pub-grub in their Cotswold country inn, The Gumstool Inn. Whatever you fancy, they promise top-notch food served in a relaxed family friendly atmosphere. And, to give parents the chance to dine and wine alone in the evenings they serve an early ‘kids tea’ daily at 5.30pm in The Gumstool Inn.
