Cheltenham Jump racing

With less than a week to the start of the Cheltenham Festival (12-15 March) there’s no time to lose to secure your accommodation for the four days of the world’s greatest Jump racing event of the year. Read on to find out how and where to book a luxury property in driving (taxi!) distance or a train ride to Cheltenham Racecourse…

Cheltenham was booked up months ago and we’ve heard that spare rooms (possibly even sofas!) are renting for silly prices. But don’t despair, we have availability at 12 of our luxury holiday cottages, from 25 minutes’ drive from Cheltenham Racecourse and the ‘Four Days of Extraordinary’. Giddy up, though, they won’t hang around for long!
