Where to find hotels with tennis courts Summer in the UK evokes visions of strawberries and cream, sparkling wines and afternoons spent watching, or better yet playing, tennis. From country house hotels with lawn courts to coastal escapes with a brisk sea air to add a little extra challenge, the best of the UK's hotels would not be complete without a tennis court or two. Play amongst the scandalously decadent Cliveden House and its National Trust gardens, or enjoy a game amongst a catalogue of leisure activities such as swimming, fishing and water sports at the likes of The Atlantic Hotel overlooking St Ouen's Bay in Jersey. Foodies can delight in the accompanying splendour of produce from summer gardens at many of the hotels as well - the ideal post match reward after an afternoon in British summer gardens, whether you holiday in the mountainous peaks of Snowdonia or the coastal bliss of Cardigan Bay. The likes of Hell Bay Hotel in the Isles of Scilly, for example, offers guests the most peaceful of locations, surrounded by the bliss of natural beauty and almost complete isolation. It's wild and rustic, while others may prefer the refined gentility of Headlam Hall, the Robinson family's stately Jacobean manor which stands in walled gardens, with farmland sprawling beyond. Surrounded by woodland and extensive formal gardens, the Bowe family's Regency style Marlfield House on the other hand, is a decadent and romantic hotel that allows for sumptuous dining as well as leisurely tennis matches in the gardens. It is even amongst the Guide's dog friendly hotels. For those looking for an active family holiday however, there is also the likes of Trefeddian Hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay, which, in addition to tennis, offers guests a games room, library, seaward lounges and indoor pool for plenty of diversions.
