Barely has Cheltenham recovered from the excesses of the Gold Cup and along comes another event in the town’s glittering calendar. And what better place to rest your weary head during the proceedings of this year’s star-packed Budvar Cheltenham Jazz Festival than at the gorgeous Cowley Manor? Taking place from 27 April, both new talent and old (jazz) hands will be taking to the stage, while gig-goers will be washing down the performances with some expertly-mixed cocktails back at the hotel’s sleek bar. The only way to do a festival, in our humble opinion, is from the comfort of a five-star hotel.
