With a history dating back to the 11th-century, when Torteword Manor was recorded in the Domesday book, the estate at Tortworth has been the ancestral seat of the Ducie family for 350 years and counting. Today, on the north-west edge of the estate, the Grade II* listed De Vere Tortworth Court hotel brings together a wealth of original features along with 21st-century style.
Found at the southern fringes of the Cotswolds, rural England’s foodie capital, local, fresh produce is sourced from good suppliers and served daily at both restaurants, one housed in a 60-foot high atrium. Heading upstairs, the recent refurbishment has created elegant guest bedrooms and suites to reflect modern British heritage.
The meeting facilities have capacities ranging from 6 to 400 delegates. The Westminster Suite is a light and airy space with its floor-to-ceiling windows and doors opening out to the grounds, ideal for the larger events. Filled with character, thanks to their wooden panelled walls and high ceilings, the Victoria and Kitchener rooms are popular for the smaller meetings with capacities of up to 50 guests in both. The Orangery offers the most impressive space. Built in 1874, this Victorian conservatory reveals ornamental glass ceiling and windows along with period detailing for up to 100 guests. Outdoor dining and seating is also available directly outside.
The hotel has 30 acres of estate grounds which are ideal for team-building activities. All found just 20 minutes from Bristol with easy access to J14 of the M5, 10 minutes to Bristol Parkway station and 40 minutes from Bristol airport.
I went to stay at the hotel to see for myself and I can say from first hand experience that the refurbishment looks amazing! Please see some photographs below…..
