About the spa
The House Spa is utterly devoted to luxury and decadent time out, whether it’s just for you, a girly getaway, or a romantic break. The swimming pool is a jewel at the centre of the experience – a 16-metre infinity pool offset by mood lighting. Then there is a thermal suite, nail parlour, rasul hot mud therapy, a juniper Finnish sauna, lavender sauna, drench showers and ice experience, a spa terrace with a hydro pool, and a gym and a personal training studio.
There are also six treatment rooms where therapists use Temple Spa products, which combine Mediterranean botanical extracts with cashmere textures and cutting-edge science. The spa offers a wide range of treatments, including a selection of bespoke therapies using items such as locally-sourced lavender to really bring the experience to life. To complete the picture there is also The Greenhouse Spa Lounge for light meals and drinks.
About the accommodation
Having started life as a 17th century Cotswold farmhouse, the hotel still has its log fires, panelled walls and views across 400 acres of surrounding countryside on the wider Farncombe Estate. The rooms themselves fall into different types and categories, ranging from Intimate and Comfy to The Attic and the sumptuous little Rose Cottage within the grounds. Whichever suits your stay, they are all individually designed, cosy, and incredibly beautiful.
There are two main dining areas at Dormy House; The Garden Room, which is a light-filled environment where seasonal country food, both farmed and foraged is served overlooking the Vale of Evesham; and The Potting Shed offering the country pub experience at its finest. Afternoon tea is an absolute must on a lazy afternoon, and when the weather is good make sure you take advantage of the grounds by heading out with a Dormy Hamper!
