THE LOOK AND FEEL

A number of honey-stone buildings, old and new, make up Ellenborough Park - and at first sight you might think this is small village. At its core is a Tudor house with many historic features: today its great hall is a spectacular yet relaxing lounge. There are very traditional furnishings in some parts, strikingly sleek, modern features in others.

THE FACILITIES

Staff are exceptionally efficient and cheerfully friendly - It's a joy to be served by such an enthusiastic team. Facilities include the much applauded spa; a large boot room with Dubarry and Hunter boots to borrow, even coats as well; private rooms for parties; and several well devised areas for weddings.
