Luxury self-catering accommodation near Cheltenham Festival

Books, poems and readings from world-famous authors make up this annual literature festival in Cheltenham, playing out over ten poetic days in October.

Every autumn, Cheltenham opens its beautiful Regency doors to a select number of eloquent writers, poets and speakers, over a series of events around the town. The literature festival has been around since 1949 and caters for book-lovers of all ages, hosted in various venues like the Town Hall, Imperial Square and Montpellier Gardens. Our luxury homestays in the vicinity are ideal for large group gatherings, providing luxury self-catering bases for book-loving groups enjoying several precious days of reading, listening, debating and writing.

 

Thanks to the event's central location in the heart of this stylish spa town, there are no shortage of food and drink outlets for guests to sample, as well as the secret visitor attractions to discover if there’s the need for a little break between the performances. Pop along to the town’s Art Gallery and Museum (also known as ‘Wilson’) and check for meets at the famous racecourse, also home to the annual Cheltenham Festival for jump racing. The area has a wealth of cultural experiences on offer for the well seasoned traveller.
