Explore Hotel

A peaceful getaway on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Set in 30 acres of secluded grounds in the glorious Wiltshire countryside, Cricklade House Hotel is the ideal retreat for those in search of tranquillity, relaxation and traditional home comforts.
Located near the pretty Cotswold town of Cricklade between Swindon and Cirencester, this tastefully restored and extended country house has 45 spacious bedrooms, plus three function rooms perfect for weddings and business events.
If you want to unwind, you can enjoy a leisurely lunch on the terrace, swim in the pool or round of golf on our nine-hole course. You can also sun yourself in our wonderful Victorian-style glass conservatory that runs the entire length of the original building.
With lots to enjoy in the hotel itself, we can't blame you if you just want to stay put during your visit, but if you do fancy heading out and about, the historic town of Cirencester is only a 15-minute drive away. Also nearby is Cotswold Water Park, where you'll find nature reserves, water sports, clay pigeon shooting and even a beach! Shoppers can pick up a bargain at the Swindon Designer Outlet Village and Orbital Shopping Park, while sports fans can enjoy speedway and greyhound racing at Swindon Stadium.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that we were not able to supply the ramp as requested. The wheelchair ramp is not hidden, but stored away in the same place for the last 12 months and used regularly - I'll try to identify the member of staff who didn't know where it was. Whilst clearly beneficial for those in a wheel chair, presents a hazard for those that are not in a wheel chair but unsteady on their feet as identified on our risk assessments, hence the reason why it is not out permanently. I am glad, however, that you enjoyed your afternoon tea. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards,
