The Elms Hotel & Spa, Abberley

A classic English Country House Hotel & Spa experience nestled in the rolling Worcestershire countryside. A Queen Anne-style bolthole that will enchant you with royalty-level luxury but with a warm and welcoming vibe.

Weekend Escapes

This majestic, Grade II listed Queen Anne country house has the wow-factor in spades. Wrapped by lush Worcestershire countryside and 10 acres of beautiful grounds it’s also a fabulously unpretentious and welcoming place to stay. With its grand rooms, sumptuous furnishings and attentive service it’s as close as you can get to feeling like the lady of your own manor for the day (or long weekend).


The superb Greenhouse Spa at The Elms has just had a stunning makeover and opens on 1 October – housed in a stunning oak and glass framed building tucked away behind the main house. You can check in for one of the bespoke Elemis therapies, try out the hydro pool. or sit in the thermal suite with cedar-scented sauna, steam room, ice fountain and fun rainforest shower complete with sound effects. There’s also a café, fitness suite, relaxation room and plenty of treatment rooms plus changing facilities.


This luxury hotel is a gem of a countryside retreat, and has a great reputation for its award-winning cuisine. Tuck into a laid-back lunch in the Badger Bar & Grill or a classic Afternoon Tea in the Great Chase Bar lounge area, all made with great British ingredients.


Each of the 23 has its own quirky name, such as Duchess and Black Worcester. You’ll get breathtaking views over the Teme Valley and royalty-level Queen Anne style beds and furnishings, with bathrooms featuring Elemis products. It’s also very dog-friendly, with all six rooms in the Coach House set up for furry friends.


And The Elms isn’t just about r&r, you can also check in for one of its brilliant events that happen all year round. Muddy loves the Autumn and Winter Cocktail Masterclasses – a chance to get together with friends or family and make your own delicious cocktails with the help of The Elms master mixologist.
