The Dormy House Hotel is set on a hill above Broadway in the Cotswolds, a special place, where over twenty two years ago we stayed on our wedding night having got married in Tetbury. Then, it was a farmhouse style hotel; cosy and country. Recently it has been closed for many months for a massive refurbishment, interior designer Emily Todd Hunter has worked her magic on it and now it is open and quite glorious. The owners are Danish, the decor has elements of Scandinavian design without being at all cold or too pared back. The fabrics and the lamps are wonderful – I wanted to touch everything!
But the real Pièce de résistance is the spa – a beautiful new building housing an infinity pool, sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub, gym… My facial was sublime and the relaxing area with wood burning stove, magazines and juice bar was somewhere to relax for the entire day.
Treat yourself ! Broadway itself is beautiful, the shops are wonderful ( home of the original Sue Parkinson store – my favourite clothes store) and the countryside is breathtaking.
