The Fish Hotel, Farncombe Estate, the Cotswolds

A back-to-nature bolthole with a little touch of luxury

The gateway to a world of relaxation and outdoor adventure

Nick Halley

Set within the 400-acre Farncombe Estate is The Fish Hotel, sister hotel to well-known Dormy House and Foxhill Manor, relaunched in 2018 following a £4 million pound renovation.  Half boutique hotel, half glamping experience, the new-look countryside bolthole is also home to a new seafood-inspired restaurant, headed up by former two Michelin-star chef Martin Burge.

The main hub of the hotel is called The Lodge and has patterned tiles, 

mood lighting, nature-inspired artwork and 360-degree fire, spanning multiple rooms.  It is a great place just to chill or caters for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

There are a number of accommodation options with Rooms, Suites, Hilly Huts or Treehouses.  We did one night in a traditional room and one night in a Hilly Hut 

which comes complete with a personal hot tub and terrace with great views over the Cotswolds.  Broadway, a picturesque and classic Cotswold village, is just a 10 minute walk across the fields with great pubs, restaurant and shops.  We stopped at Daylesford Farmshop and Bicester Village on the way back to London to round off a great weekend!
