The Calcot Collection is a renowned yet small and eclectic group of luxury hotels, inns, restaurants, and spas.
Each establishment has its own unique personality and story to tell. However, they all share a common vision: delivering outstanding and uplifting hospitality experiences in inspiring countryside locations. This vision is carried out with genuine passion, responsibility, and a focus on personality.
The collection is made up of three beautiful properties across The Cotswolds and Northumberland. The flagship hotel, Calcot & Spa, is where it all began, and The Painswick, an elegant Palladian house, are both nestled in the beautiful Cotswolds. The Lord Crewe Arms, known as the collection’s ‘rogue northerner’, sits on the edge of the wild landscape of the North Pennines. Whichever you choose, the collection is proud to welcome escapees, romantics, adventurers, and fully-fledged foodies for an escape to the countryside.
Let us introduce you to the collection…
