Dormy House – Broadway, Worcestershire
Hidden deep within the sprawling 400-acre Farncombe Estate, on a hill overlooking the picture-postcard village of Broadway, this 17th-century farmhouse-turned-boutique retreat underwent a £10 million renovation. Inside, flagstone floors, plush sofas and stone fireplaces offer a home-away-from-home level of comfort – albeit in a grander setting. Its 39 cheerful bedrooms and suites are the exemplar of quintessential country living with a touch of Scandinavian style. Dormy House is also home to an internationally renowned spa, offering utter relaxation in the form of thermal suites, lavender infusion saunas and an outdoor fireside hot tub. As for food, graze on light bites at The Potting Shed Bar, or for heartier fare, try The Back Garden restaurant’s seasonal, sustainable menu of local, high-welfare meat and responsibly cultivated veg. You’re free to explore the beautiful Farncombe Estate, or a short drive takes you to the village of Broadway with its exquisite houses, regal inns, manicured lawns, and art galleries. For spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, a short hike will take you to Broadway Tower, an 18th-century folly.
