Winner

Dormy House

All honey-hued stone on the outside and clean-lined Scandi-chic on the inside, this recently opened retreat has quickly won ardent fans, becoming a bit hit with Cotswolds spa-goers. The candlelit infinity pool may be its centrepiece, but the rhassoul-mud room, fragrant thermal suite, Veuve Clicquot nail bar and host of Temple Spa treatments are equally tempting.
