If you’re seeking a relaxing rural vacation with a touch of luxury in the heart of some of Britain’s most picturesque countryside, Dormy House will not leave you disappointed. Set within a 17th-century farmhouse with splendid views across the Cotswolds, this elegant hotel and spa is full of stylish country charm. Boasting cozy corners, log fires, and luxuriously comfortable interiors, there is no better place from which to explore the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is the north Cotswolds.
Dormy House is perched at the top of Willersey Hill, high above the honey-coloured stone village of Broadway, a classic Cotswold market town perfect for antique hunting and boutique browsing. The hotel is superbly located for enjoying the many attractions that the Cotswolds have to offer. Discover one of Britain’s best-known literary heritage sites, Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, or pay a visit to Cheltenham’s prestigious race course, both only a 25-minute drive away. Lose yourself in the spectacular gardens of Hidcote Manor, or escape to the outdoors on any number of walks through the woodlands, hills, fields and villages of the beautiful British countryside on the hotel’s doorstep. Drive to Dormy House from Birmingham Airport in an hour, or catch a train from London Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh, a 15-minute drive away.
Each of the 38 rooms and suites in this carefully converted farmhouse complex emanates country charm and have been individually furnished to provide cozy comfort. Choose from individual rooms in a variety of sizes, each with modern bathrooms, and the option of an extravagant four-poster bed, or opt for one of the hotel’s more spacious suites. For ultimate privacy and indulgence, stay in Rose Cottage, a traditional Cotswold cottage with its own private hot tub and courtyard.
