    However, there’s much more on offer on site besides golf. Celtic Manor boasts a range of indoor activity experiences from gin, cocktail, Welsh cake and chocolate making classes, wine tasting sessions and chef’s kitchen cookery courses. For those looking to simply relax, the hotel features exceptional spas and state-of-the-art health clubs. There are also seven restaurants on site to choose from.
