Dormy House, Farncombe Estate

Sat along a quiet lane and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, is this little sanctuary of comfort imbued with ‘hygge’: the sense of cosiness afforded by life’s simple pleasures.

Dormy House, Farncombe Estate

Dormy House, named after the golfing term for an unbeatable round, is a family owned property that is part of the 400-acre Farncombe Estate alongside two other luxury hotels: The Fish and Foxhill Manor.

The hotel is set within a 17th century farmhouse, which was renovated by its Nordic owners to integrate the buildings heritage with the chic of contemporary Scandinavian design. Throughout you’ll find ancient wood beam ceilings, roaring fires and stone floors that are paired with contemporary colours and fun modern prints, lending an interior that exudes relaxed, country glamour with a merry, characterful lilt.

Accommodations are rooms and suites that can be found within the main farmhouse or within a private cottage. Whether you are a couple, or a family there is a room option to suit you. For couples, we especially recommend the Hot Tub Courtyard Suite, which boasts its own hot tub.

Though small, Dormy House offers plentiful dining options. Opt for fine dining at The Back Garden, low-key easy-going fare at The Potting Shed or surprising creations at the new MO restaurant. As if that were not enough, there are also three private dining rooms and nooks that can be hired for more intimate occasions, and picnics can even be prepared for you to take the taste of Dormy House into the hills with you.

After a day exploring the picturesque local village of Broadway, or ambling along the Cotswolds hills, the award-winning House Spa offers such an impressive range of treatments and therapy rooms to visit, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you can’t choose, you don’t have to. Join the House Spa for a specially designed spa day to experience a range of different treatments, before slipping to The Green House, the chilled-out spa café, for a post-spa wind down drink. Decadence at it’s finest.
