Racy Place to Spend Your Cheltenham Winnings

Ellenborough Park in Gloucestershire;

If the behaviour of one of its former residents is anything to go by, a stay at Ellenborough Park will be anything but dull. Once home to Jane Digby, whose romantic liaisons and globetrotting pursuits caused great scandal in 19th-century society, the manor is now home to a country-house hotel in the grand style. Within sight of Cheltenham racetrack, where the Gold Cup is awarded on 18 March this year, Ellenborough Park spreads over manicured grounds. Bedrooms are decorated in a traditional rural manner, with upgrades such as super-comfy Hypnos mattresses, rain showers and underfloor heating. The spa, with treatment rooms and outdoor pool, is another more modern addition. A meal in the formal, wood-panelled restaurant is an undoubted highlight, with delicate, imaginative dishes following one after the other in the tasting menu. Post-dinner, many guests choose to sprawl by the fire in the lounge with a gin or cognac delivered straight from the in-house pub.
