The Dormy House slogan, “a bit like home, but better”, could not be more accurate for this 17th-century Cotswold retreat perched high above the village of Broadway, where flickering fires and cosy corners in rooms with sumptuous interiors welcome you to spend some time getting back “home” to yourself.
Stunning bedrooms and suites in unique contemporary cottage styles with exposed rustic features are offered alongside private access to courtyard hot tubs and a high-end service at a restaurant committed to delivering only the finest ingredients in combinations to satisfy and nourish all appetites.
For a thoroughly wellness-enhancing break, the outstanding House Spa provides some standout hydrothermal and treatment facilities as well as the highest level of professional care to ensure you go “home” feeling brand new.
House Spa intends to make its guests not just feel well and “at one”, but “absolutely fabulous” as well. Lined with comfortable loungers, the atmospheric Bathing Room includes a 16m indoor infinity pool while the Scandinavian-inspired Thermal Suite will leave you soothed and invigorated by its hot juniper sauna, salt-infusion therapy room, steam room, drench shower and ice experience. A high-tech i-sopod isolation floatation experience is said to help relaxation, stress and offer pain relief.
An outdoor spa terrace provides a hydrotherapy hot tub to warm you on even the coldest of days; the Fitness Suite is a haven of state-of-the-art cardio and weights equipment.
Expert therapists welcome you to six tranquil treatment rooms and a couple’s room for treatments ranging from rejuvenating facials to exfoliating body scrubs using Temple Spa products. A collaboration with Beata Aleksandrowicz and Wellness for Cancer makes the benefits of the spa’s specialist Therapeutic Touch treatment available to all.
For a chilled-out café break post-treatment, the Greenhouse provides soothing drinks and nutritional lunches and snacks.

Hot Tub Courtyard Suite
The jewel in the the Farncombe Estate, a 17th Century farmhouse perched in a glorious Cotswolds setting, Dormy House offers a Scandi-chic, country escape. The cosy lounges and roaring fireplaces that scatter the bustling entrance create a comforting atmosphere and, combined with the friendliness of the staff, you immediately feel at home.
Dormy’s nearby younger sibling Foxhill Manor is a private house hotel with just eight unique bedrooms and suites. A Grade-II listed Arts and Crafts country manor refreshed and revitalised for the 21st century, Foxhill is a new type of stay: all the character and charm of a boutique-hotel hideaway, served up with heartfelt personal service and an easy-going at-home atmosphere.
Both properties can make use of the wonderful, award winning House Spa…
Named best UK Spa Hotel by The Sunday Times and winner of ‘Best Spa’ in the Smith Awards (judged no less, by me!) the stunning state-of-the-art spa was created by celebrated spa specialists Sparcstudio.
The spa’s hub is The Greenhouse, a healthy eatery where you can chomp on delicious salads or sip a juice whilst taking in views of the breathtaking Cotswold backdrop. The spa boasts an infinity swimming pool, outdoor hydrotherapy pool, tranquil thermal suite, relaxation rooms and training studio. There’s also a delightful ‘Champagne Nail Parlour’!
Drift Away Massage: Definitely one for the evening – the uber-relaxing massage is designed to iron out stress and allow the body to unwind, encouraging a good night’s sleep. A base of soothing olive oil is blended with lavender, black pepper, bitter orange and sleep enhancing myrrh, in combination with a relaxing full body and indian head massage, leaving you positively horizontal and ready for zzz’s.
Diamond Indulgence – With treatments by luxury spa brand Natura Bisse, The Diamond Indulgence includes the Diamond Life Infusion Ritual, a full body massage and a champagne lunch in The Greenhouse, along with full use of the House Spa & leisure facilities.
The Outer Glow – A combination of a gently uplifting sugar body scrub to polish your body and a breakfast smoothie face exfoliation create an invigorating and refreshing all-over treatment, leaving the skin revitalised and hydrated from top to toe.
Rooms range from ‘Intimate’ to ‘Top Notch’, with several individually designed suites – all are delightful. We stayed in the Loft Suite, with spectacular views of the rolling countryside viewable from a roll top bath!
Pleasantly styled in honey hues and taupe tones, our suite had a cosy open plan lounge and the bathroom was kitted out with a generous amount of Temple Spa products.
Opt for The Potting Shed for informal lunches and lively suppers. The pub style eaterie serves food all day and offers hearty fayre, such as chicken breast with smoked onion rosti, fish and chips and tasty risottos.
The award-winning Garden Room Restaurant is the invention of Head Chef Jon Ingram and serves up a wonderful tasting menu, which includes hand dived orkney scallops and a delicious pine nut meringue with caramel.
The Greenhouse serves up delicious nutrition focused lunches, juices and snacks.
