Nuzzled into the 400 acre Farncombe Estate and clinging to a hillside that peers over pretty villages and countryside, The Fish Hotel at Broadway in the Cotswolds is an exciting country retreat that combines village houses, huts and private farmhouse.
The Fish is so much more than a place to stay; it’s a fabulous giant playground for outdoor activities and experiences. Also home to Foxhill Manor, it’s sister hotel, the magnificent Farncombe Estate is made up of woodland and patchwork fields, just perfect for cycling, hiking and picnicking, not to mention the endless range of activities such as tennis, Segway, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting. And it’s not just the kids and adults who can have all the fun, the dog can come along to The Fish Hotel too.
The minimalist, contemporary rooms here really add to the ethos; this is simplicity at its best and encourages you to ditch the daily routine and escape to a less complicated lifestyle where you can get back to nature. But don’t let that fool you into thinking that the home comforts and luxuries we all love have been neglected. There’s a really cool and subtle richness to the place, which makes you feel warm on the inside. Natural colour palettes create calming backdrops to the rustic-chic design of the rooms.
If you love to explore idyllic chocolate-box villages, amble among ancient market towns or simply watch the world go by at an artisan café, you have certainly come to the right place. The Cotswolds is known for being one of the most beautiful areas of the country and is filled with delights. Alternatively, you could visit the cultural city of Oxford or step into the world of Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon.
If all this isn’t enough to whet your appetite, The Fish Hotel offers some serious food for thought. Abounding with wonderful local produce, the Cotswolds is foodie heaven. You’ll never find the chefs or staff at The Fish resting on their laurels, as they’re far too busy working together to deliver the finest dishes and faultless hospitality.
