At a Glance

This award-winning hotel pairs cheerful, friendly service with the best in amenities–the hotel even has an on-site cinema.


Closed for renovations as of April 2024

This pretty 17th-century manor combines country house charm with a sleek contemporary design. Behind the mellow stone façade is the kind of ultracool setting that will reassure the most die-hard urbanites: the split-level stable-yard rooms feel more Manhattan loft than cozy Cotswold cottage, all clean lines and funky lighting. Beds are enormous with crisp white goose-down duvets, while upstairs, splendidly smart bathrooms impress with gigantic showers and freestanding baths. The Home Farm Cottage, which can accommodate six people and occupies a former farmhand's house, is particularly lovely. And then there’s the spa. Tucked behind an ancient temple, it boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that frame glorious views of rolling green countryside. Go holistic with Reiki, Shiatsu and a Thai massage, then hop into the steaming outdoor hydrotherapy pool, deliciously warm even in chilly weather. Go in the spring, when the blooming gardens won’t disappoint.

Who Should Stay

Couples or families with older children looking for traditional luxury combined with fantastic amenities. The hotel does not allow children under 14, so families with young children should look elsewhere.
