Owlpen Manor


OWLPEN in its magical Cotswold valley setting has long been recognised as one of the most romantic places in England. The famous Tudor manor house (1450-1616) stands in an early formal garden of magnificent yews at the heart of the estate, steeped in 900 years of history. Owlpen and its hamlet of secluded Cotswold holiday cottages form a relaxing hideaway, surrounded by private woods and hills in the most dramatic landscape of the Cotswold hills. Owlpen’s luxury offers peace and seclusion such as you will find nowhere else in southern England.

The licenced Cyder House restaurant is set in an atmospheric medieval building where home-cooked, seasonal meals are served for private parties, with an emphasis on the fresh produce of the working farm and garden. The restaurant, manor house and holiday cottages adapt as the Cotswolds’ most romantic setting for weddings, celebrations, gatherings of friends, meetings and corporate events.
