The Elms Hotel & Spa


The Elms Hotel & Spa

Where luxury country hotels near Worcester and Birmingham are concerned, our beautiful Queen Anne mansion with its extensive grounds is just as impressive inside as out. For years, the house served as a grand family home. Now, it offers an equally warm welcome to guests as a privately owned English country house hotel.

The Elms was built in 1710 and designed by Thomas White, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren. White’s other work includes the Guildhall at Worcester, which contains many features similar to the house. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the carriage drive was once lined with elm trees, though these have long died out and been replaced with limes.

We never forget that The Elms was designed to be a home, as our guests we would like you to have an experience to remember.

With 10 acres of outdoor space you have plenty of gardens to explore, whilst the more energetic can play Tennis or Croquet.

Use us as a base for venturing out to local attractions such as the West Midland Safari and Leisure Park. Alternatively, simply relax in our spa, complete with swimming pool, sauna, and treatment rooms.

When it comes to dining, our food and drink is highly regarded and our fine dining has been recognised with the award of two AA Rosettes. Fruit, herbs and vegetables are grown in our garden to ensure the very best quality and zero food miles. We’ve even got our own expert kitchen gardener, who’s happy to stop and chat.

With all this, plus comfortable and elegant rooms to relax in, quality relaxing time is one luxury that’s never in short supply.
