Whatley Manor in Malmesbury is a beautiful 17th century farmhouse set in 12 acres of interesting manicured garden. Explore the classic English Rose garden, kitchen garden and the more contemporary Loggia Garden to name a few. This striking manor house really does have the wow factor with its cutting-edge spa and gardens that you could only ever dream of.

Food and Drink at Whatley Manor

Executive Chef, Niall Keating was awarded a Michelin star in 2017 for his culinary skills in The Dining Room. The food is mainly Modern British with a twist and is inspired by Niall’s worldwide travels. Grey’s Brasserie has a more contemporary feel and is great for a relaxed lunch or dinner. We recommend dining al fresco on the terrace when the sun is shining. The Kitchen Garden also offers a very relaxed social affair, with tapas-style small plates and wonderful cocktails.


The 23 rooms at this luxury hotel in Malmesbury are seriously stylish and blend modern design with wooden floors, tactile fabrics and leaded windows. The views here are to die for and will make you want to linger with breakfast in bed.

Aquarias Spa

The Aquarias Spa at Whatley Manor is a perfect place to relax and also recharge those batteries. Guests can make use of the indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy pools, thermal suite and a well-equipped gym. The Natura Bissé Diamond Ritual was created especially for Aquarias Spa and includes a lavender back massage and facial to energise the skin and restore youthful elasticity.

Beyond the hotel gates, the delights of Malmesbury, Tetbury await.

Whatley Manor welcomes children from the age of 12 years.
