The Manor House and Ashbury hotels have long been hailed as one of the UK’s best places to go for a leisure break and with tennis courts at the heart of the site, they remain one of our favourite places for some well-earned tennis R and R.

Set in over 600 acres of beautiful countryside on the foothills of Dartmoor National Park, Manor House and its sister hotel The Ashbury proudly calls itself a “three star hotel with five star facilities”.

With a total of eight indoor and four outdoor tennis courts (complete with stunning views across Dartmoor), you can enjoy unlimited tennis for free, and group coaching is available from just £4 per hour and if you wanted to sneak off for a private 1-1 session with an LTA accredited coach, lessons are available on request and cost £20 an hour.

The dedicated tennis team is on hand to pre-book courts and lessons before you arrive and book private coaching with resident tennis coach Roger Froud. The friendly staff at Manor House and Ashbury Hotels can also put together a package to suit any individual or group of players looking to enjoy the facilities.

And if playing tennis isn’t enough for lovers of other racket sports, like badminton and short tennis there are 12 courts to use as well as two squash courts.

In June and July the hotel is offering breaks from only £65 per person per night. The cost includes breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as accommodation in an en suite bedroom, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities. There’s also a choice of bars and lounges, some with live Sky Sports and other peaceful places to soak up the tranquility of the Devon countryside.

As dedicated followers of Manor House and Ashbury Hotels will know there are loads of other activities to try alongside the tennis from bowls to ice-skating, archery to crafts. If you find yourself at the end of a long busy day, why not relax in the pool, sauna or steam room in the hydro spas or just chill out on a poolside lounger?
