859-1/2/282 Tewkesbury Park Hotel
(Formerly Listed as:
Tewkesbury Park)


Large country house, now hotel. Late C18. Rendered, slate
roof, brick stacks.
PLAN: a long thin block with 2 full-height round bays on the
garden side, with slightly set-back wing to the E, and two
deep wings to the N (entrance side), one of these original,
enclosing courtyard. The courtyard now filled by late C20
hotel extensions, and considerable extensions to the west.
EXTERIOR: S front is 3 storeys and part basement,
1:3:1:3:1:2-windowed, all 12-pane sashes with face boxes and
stone cills; windows at first floor larger than at second
floor. The 3-window bows are to hipped roofs with weather-vane
finials. At ground floor is a pair of C20 French doors, left,
and to centre a pair of 2-panel part-glazed doors in C19
surround with a cornice on scroll supporters, on a flight of
9+4 sandstone steps to nosings. Large rendered stack at right
To right the lower set-back wing has 2 wide-spaced 12-pane
sashes flanking a slightly projecting and cropped eaves stack;
at ground floor a C19 lean-to glazed conservatory in poor
condition at time of survey. Main block has slight flat
pilaster ends and cap mould continued under eaves. Left return
is painted brickwork, with 12-pane sashes centrally, but
concealed at ground floor by new additions.
Back, now entrance front, has 3 wide-spaced 12-pane sashes at
first and second floors, and a central projecting porch, now
absorbed into the extension between the long gabled wings;
that to the left (E) side seems to be contemporary with the
house, in painted brickwork to slated hipped roof, with
display window under hip. The corresponding wing to the right
of the entrance is new or rebuilt.
INTERIOR has main stair in an open well to swept bottom
flight, square balusters, moulded swept handrail, open string
and scrolled ends. Several rooms and corridors have fielded
panelling and fielded panelled doors, including the boardroom
in the first floor of one of the bays, panelled throughout. At
base of stairs a screen of 2 stone Doric columns carrying
triglyph frieze.
The building is somewhat overwhelmed by C20 extension on the
approach side, but the main block masters the landscape on the
S side. The house is on the site of the C14 house of the
Despencers, and near the site of the Battle of Tewkesbury.
