"Superb and unique."
Superb and unique. We stayed two nights and I can honestly say that this is one of the best experiences of a hotel/spa that I have ever had. Cowley Manor is tucked away in a tiny village, away from the hustle and bustle. Combining a lovely old manor house building and stable block with modern, stylish, comfortable design and chic but unpretentious and warm atmosphere and a superb spa/pool area. There are large, lovely gardens also. The main building has a grand sandstone facade – and inside is a combination of original features and Swedish style modern design, with relaxing areas and a bar and separate restaurant etc. We stayed in a room titled ‘exceptional’, in the coach house, just in front of the main building. The bedroom had a large floor area, and was very comfortable, with a separate, private balcony which had loungers and chairs. The room included a king sized bed, plenty of pillows, large soft cotton towels, robes, a bath area in the room with separate shower/loo, tea/coffee, a kettle, real coffee maker, mini bar and fridge, large television, bose docking station, CD player, and like the rest of the hotel, the room was stylish, clean and well maintained. It is clear that the owners have made a considerable investment in the building and all of the facilities. Some ‘coach house’ type buildings in hotels pale in comparison to the main building – however, the out buildings accommodation at Crowley was part of the original set of buildings and so blends in very w
