The Bowood Golf and Country Club in Wiltshire is set to gain a new hotel complete with spa and meeting rooms, according to caterer.com.
The hotel will offer 43 bedrooms, two lounges doubling as meeting rooms, a bar and a restaurant capable of accommodating over 80 people. Six suites will be incorporated into the accommodation. The Bowood estate covers 2,000 acres and has been the home of the Landsdowne family for over 250 years.
The Shelburne Bar and Restaurant will be integrated into one side of the hotel and the new spa on the other.
Building the new meeting rooms should attract more business tourism to the premises, with many firms sure to take advantage of the close proximity of the golf course as a means of facilitating a more laidback atmosphere.
Bowood's rich history is a major pull for businesses seeking a grander backdrop to their conference venue.
According to the Telegraph, figures from the English Golf Union show that nearly 50 per cent of golf clubs in England have suffered a decline in membership in recent months.
