Oakfield Gardens and Events is new wedding venue
Oakfield Gardens and Events is new wedding venue in the grounds of Worcester-based The River School....
Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa sets the scene for a perfect family getaway and an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones. Following its £5.6M refurbishment, the hotel is fully equipped for a relaxing pre-or post-wedding staycation.
This 125-year-old property boasts charming grounds, complete with an 11th-century church and a listed, ornate topiary garden. Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa has designed a scavenger hunt to encourage children to explore the grounds and learn along the way. Shakespeare famously wrote lines from his play As You Like It from the library and as such many nods to Shakespeare can be found around the hotel from handcrafted feather pieces to more traditional artwork, which no doubt will be included in the scavenger hunt! The scavenger hunt will provide a day of discovery and challenges and will no doubt leave children entertained.
Feed the swans
Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa encourages its guests to visit the iconic swans of Stratford-Upon-Avon and will provide grains and seeds to feed the birds. Enjoy an idyllic stroll along the River Avon and watch the elegant swans in their natural habitat; an activity for the whole family to enjoy.
Wander the grounds
Families can explore the beautifully landscaped grounds and discover the exquisite, listed topiary garden. The garden was planted over 125 years ago and has been curated and shaped to form giant chess pieces, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. For those wishing to spend time outside, exploring the beautiful countryside will find several idyllic country walks which reception will be more than happy to map out.
Be pampered at the spa
For adults, the Billesley Manor Spa promises a tranquil escape, where guests can indulge in a variety of Decleor treatments at the newly refurbished spa for the ultimate relaxation after a day spent exploring the hotel’s surrounding gardens and countryside. Guests can take a dip in the pool followed by a steam and a sauna or make use of the secluded yoga hut and fantastic gym facilities.
