Why We Love This Hotel

  • This “flamboyant” (The Daily Telegraph) hotel occupies a 19th-century former hunting lodge
  • The property is near the Cotswolds, with its “delightful tangle of golden villages” (Lonely Planet) and is a 20-minute drive from Stratford-upon-Avon
  • There’s a “remarkable” (The Daily Telegraph) wood-panelled interior and elegant formal gardens
  • You’ll find “focused modern cooking” (The AA) in the upmarket restaurant


Set between the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills, both designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Wood Norton offers a “wonderfully intriguing” (The Daily Telegraph) stay in a historic countryside setting. This grand mansion-style hotel is housed in a former 19th-century hunting lodge, used as a BBC broadcasting centre in World War Two, plus an annexe, and is a 20-minute drive from the quaint village of Broadway. Both Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of Shakespeare, and Hidcote Manor Gardens, “one of the most delightful arts and crafts gardens in England” (The AA) are within 30 minutes’ drive of the hotel, and Royal Leamington Spa, known for its Regency architecture, is approximately 45 minutes away by car.

The Wood Norton’s ornate facade opens to “fabulously rich” (The AA) interiors lined with oak panelling and hung with chandeliers. Dining options include a brasserie with rural views, and a contemporary-style 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, and there’s a “sleek” (The Daily Telegraph) bar with a pewter-topped counter, where snacks and afternoon tea are available. Other amenities include a fitness room and a games room with a pool table, as well as extensive grounds.

Split between the main house, and the former stables and coach house, the 50 guestrooms are varied in style, ranging from “ritzy to modern” (The Daily Telegraph), and include free Wi-Fi, TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Rooms in the main house add details such as sitting areas and roll-top tubs, plus wood-carved bedsteads and oak-lined walls. Rooms in the main hall also have air-conditioning. Breakfast is included.
