Our favourite rooms
All the rooms have light, muted, Farrow-and-Ball-esque colours, but the Feature Spaces are each individually styled to show off original elements of the building, such as bare beams or exposed, centuries-old brickwork. One has a loft bathroom that lets you bathe in regal comfort. But our favourite is 103, for its copper bath tub on a wooden floor next to the bed.
Down in the vast vaulted basement is the Spa, with four treatment rooms, a relaxation room, sauna, steam room, hot tub and experience shower. The experience you have is up to you, of course. Treatments include massages and aromatherapy, with mother and daughter packages and treatments designed for those aged 12-16. Products are Lubatti and Leighton Denny. A two-hour session in the spa's Wet Area – the hot tub, steam room, infrared sauna, experience shower with a variety of jets and heated relaxation area – is £10 a person for guests (free for guests who have booked treatments).
Bring your casual clobber for muddy walks in the country. A dash of tweed wouldn't be out of place.
Pets are accepted in all room types, for £10 a night, and are welcome in the lounge/bar (where bowls are provided), but not the restaurant. Dogs larger than a labrador/retriever unfortunately cannot be accommodated. See more pet-friendly hotels in Cotswolds.
Under-12s can stay in cots (£15 a night) and extra beds (£30 a night) on request in Superior, Deluxe and Feature rooms. High chairs are available in the restaurant.
