There are plenty of options when it comes to Stay & Play golf holidays in the UK but if you’re looking to escape for a weekend away towards the South if England, you’d be mad not to consider heading to Manor House.
We recently sent Youtube stars Mark Crossfield and Matthew “Coach” Lockey, as well as our very own YGT Rory and PGA Professional Dan Hendrickson to Manor House Golf Club to film an 18 hole course vlog, showing you guys the ins and outs of this beautiful layout, how best to play it…and in Rory’s case in particular, how NOT to play it too!
The guys had a great time and you can CLICK HERE to see the videos, but the course isn’t the only thing this charming resort has to offer.
Read on to and you’ll see 5 reasons to visit Manor House on your next golf trip…
1 – Bybrook Restaurant
Are you a foodie? You’ll simply love the Bybrook Restaurant if so. Taking its name from the river that runs through the grounds of the infinitely charming Manor House Hotel (located less than 10 minutes from the golf course), this Michelin Star establishment serves up delicious seasonal dishes which are perfectly complemented by fine wines which have been handpicked by an expert sommelier, creating an unforgettable dining experience.
2 – The Course
Designed by the legendary Peter Alliss, known by golfers around the world as “The Voice of Golf”, the course at Manor House is one of the most picturesque in the South of England and an absolute joy to play for golfers of all abilities. The undulating landscape on which the course sits lends itself to some quirky but truly remarkable holes. The 2nd is one of the best par 3s in the country, while holes like the par 5 12th and the par 3 17th just ooze fun and are sure to thrill visiting golfers.
3 – Escape to The Country
Manor House Hotel is set amongst 365 acres of pristine Wiltshire countryside, and throughout the beautiful woodland and parkland, there’s an abundance of activities to keep you busy during your time away from the golf course. Try your hand at fly fishing on the river, play a game of croquet on the lawns or simply stroll through the beautiful grounds, all the while forgetting the stresses and strains of everyday life; the choice is yours.
4 – Staying in Style
From the Waterfall Lodge, located a stone’s throw from the 18th green at Manor House Golf Club and an ideal base for groups of golfers who are travelling down with golf as the main focus, to the main Manor House Hotel and its luxurious Mews Cottages, among the most charming places to stay in all of England, you might find it hard to leave your room or suite of choice if it weren’t for the wealth of attractions just outside your doorstep.
5 – Out & About
Whether you’re based at the main Manor House Hotel or the Waterfall Lodge which overlooks the 18th green at the golf club, you’re never too far away from fascinating local attractions that are just waiting to be explored. From Stonehenge and the Roman Baths, both an absolute must for history buffs, to a day at Bristol Zoo or an adrenaline-fuelled track experience at Castle Combe Circuit; there’s plenty to do and see within a reasonable driving distance of Manor House.
