Easter Holiday Inspiration, Where to stay….

Ellenborough Park is the ideal venue for luxury family holidays. A five-star country house hotel nestled in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, they are the perfect hosts for some family springtime fun. The hotel sits in 90 acres of land on the old Cheltenham Racecourse estate and is right on the doorstep of Cleeve Hill, a popular local walking destination due to its stunning views over the city. The specially kitted out boot room lets guests borrow Dubarry boots and jackets and Hunter wellingtons to make sure they’re well equipped for exploring the Cotswolds. Ergobaby have partnered up with the hotel to provide them with a selection of our Adapt and 360 carriers, allowing parents to leave the buggy behind and baby-wear on any country walks or days out in the Cotswolds. Older kids are looked after too with welcome packs and milk and cookies turndown service being some of the ways they welcome little guests.


Where to eat

The hotel has two family-friendly restaurants, the 3AA rosette Beaufort Dining Room and the more informal Brasserie, and Cheltenham itself is host to all your usual family-friendly spots such as Prezzo, Côte, ASK, Café Rouge, Carluccios, Bill’s and Pizza Express.


For something a little different, The Ox does a great family roast dinner and Huffkins sandwiches and teacakes shouldn’t be missed!


What to do nearby:

There are a whole host of things to do with the kids both in and around Cheltenham. There are endless walks around the hills (with your Ergo!) or for something a little more organised check out the attractions below:
