Country House Hotel Grounds
Tortworth Court’s immaculate grounds are a spectacular feature of this Cotswolds country house hotel. Explore the 30 acres of tranquil parkland at your leisure. Overlooking a lake, it is hard to imagine a hotel with grounds which so perfectly reflect the spirit of English country house hotels. The decorative flower beds and mature landscape enhance the character and grandeur of this splendid historic hotel.
The hotel also has its own mature arboretum of over 300 rare and protected trees. A fascinating Gloucestershire arboretum, it is recognised as one of the finest of its types in the British Isles.
Each tree is labeled with a number and there is a booklet obtainable from the Hotel Reception, which identifies all the trees, many of which are very rare and several are the best example of their species in England. There are two superb specimens of Davidia Involucrata, (Paper Handkerchief tree) and it is suggested that the tree numbered 143, Kelkova Carpinifolia (Caucasian Elm) may be the largest in the British Isles with a girth of 6.52m and well over 30m high.
Whatever time of year you visit Tortworth Court Arboretum, the range of trees and picturesque grounds will prove to be a memorable part of your stay.
