About Cleeve Hill

Otherwise known as the Cleeve Cloud, Cleeve Hill is the highest point of the Cotswolds rising to a height of 1083 ft. Spread out below is the town of Cheltenham and its famous Prestbury racecourse, home of the Cheltenham Gold Cup meeting which was always attended by the late Queen Mother.

This dramatic airy upland remains one of the most breathtaking viewpoints of anywhere in England, with commanding views across the landscape to the distant dramatic outline of the Malvern Hills.

Mingling with a golf course which offers excellent visitor facilities is the remains of an Iron-Age hill fort.

Running along the winding road leading to the top of Cleeve Hill are a number of houses built in the days when Cheltenham was a fashionable "Spa" town, these are mostly converted to provide comfortable hotels and restaurants.
