Address
The Fish Hotel
Farncombe Estate
Broadway
WR12 7LH
United Kingdom

The Fish Hotel sits pretty on the rolling grounds of the Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds.

Planes

Birmingham Airport is the closest and roughly an hour away by car. Bristol Airport is a 90-minute drive from the hotel and London hubs are further afield: London Heathrow is 82 miles away; Gatwick, 117.

Trains

The depot at Moreton-in-Marsh is 20 minutes from the hotel. First Great Western trains (www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk) arrive direct from London Paddington in 90 minutes, Reading in an hour and Oxford in 40 minutes.

Automobiles

The drive from London without traffic is about two hours via the M40 and A40, and there’s free parking onsite.

Worth getting out of bed for

Strewn across 400 rolling country Cotswolds acres, the Fish lures ramblers of all stripes; the hotel has a dedicated boot room (a partnership with the Original Muck Boot Company) waiting when you return. Tramp across verdant fields and in 45 minutes you’ll wind up on the High Street of Broadway Village, lined with antiques shops, boutiques and cafés. And for fragrant souvenirs, make the 10-minute drive to Cotswold Lavender, a fourth-generation family farm that makes oils, soaps, candles and scents. Feeling sporty? Lace up your trainers for one very scenic jog.

Local restaurants

Book ahead for a table at the award-winning Russell’swith modern British cuisine from chef Neil Clark. Ingredients are locally sourced and so fresh that the wild duck comes with a warning: may contain shot. Set on the same estate as the Fish itself, the elegant Garden Room at Dormy House wows with its tasting menu and dishes such as Tamworth pig toad-in-the-hole, nettle risotto with sunflower-seed pesto and lemon posset with elderflower.

Local cafés

Broadway Deli is just the spot for picking up picnic provisions and sandwiches to go (they’ll create the ultimate gift hamper for you, too). Or, check the list of daily specials and squeeze in with the locals to catch up on the day’s news over coffee.

Anonymous review

By Alice Tate , Globetrotter

I’m in my pyjamas in bed in my Cosy Luxe room at the Fish and I hear… nothing. Sweet, blissful nothing. The silence you don’t get anywhere when you live in a city; the one that really lets your mind wander, your body relax and your whole soul drift off into a heavenly, peaceful slumber. 

This is why you come to the Fish: to relax, zone out, escape the digital world (though there is excellent WiFi if you wish to connect), lie in, explore the countryside and eat well. And whether you’re here with your partner, a group of girlfriends, kids, or parents, you feel at home, welcome and in good company. Unlike a lot of boutique hotels, the Fish’s demographic is seemingly broad. Looking around the breakfast room while eating my eggs and soldiers on Saturday morning, there’s everyone from young couples and elderly lovers to sets of couples making up tables of six and four-generation-spanning families. To be here alone is frankly quite odd, and the waitress doesn’t hesitate to tell me, chuckling as she removes the extra placement. People obviously don’t do that so much here. Nevertheless, I quite like a solo retreat, and I’d argue that the Fish is a great place to do it: the rooms are pretty compact so you don’t feel lonely and there are plenty of sofas in the lounge on which to curl up with a book; then there’s the vast expanse of countryside that’s perfect for long walks and getting your thoughts together. 

Getting here from London couldn’t be simpler. You hop on the train at Paddington and an hour and a half of countryside later, you jump off at Moreton-in-Marsh station, and take a 15-minute taxi to the hotel. Everyone around here knows the Farncombe Estate, and the drive across the grounds is certainly a lovely one, with picturesque views of the patchwork fields stretching right over to North Wales. Check-in is quick and easy; though with my room being down in the Stables and arriving in the dark, I could have done with a little more assistance in getting there. Call me fussy, but even if I am travelling with the smallest backpack of all, I do still like to be accompanied to my room. 

My room, 98, is comfortable yet modest. It’s homely. Compact. Basic luxury — that’s the vibe of the Fish throughout, prices and all. It’s modern country chic with a nod to the Scandi aesthetic: a sheepskin rug on a leather basket chair; a statement blue rotary telephone; and a cream vintage radio on the desk. The bed is huge and wonderfully comfortable, with a green-upholstered headboard, piled up pillows and a rich, woollen bedspread. There’s a desk with tea and coffee supplies (a Smeg fridge in the foyer offers more fresh milk), a large mirror, bedside table lamps and, in terms of storage, a chest of drawers and hooks and hangers for clothes. The bathroom is pretty low-key. There’s a bath tub with an overhead shower and a basic Bramley toiletries — so you’ll be stung if you forget your toothbrush, razor, nail file and the like. 

Dinner is a delight; unsurprisingly, it’s popular with residents as well as locals. There are tables of twos, tens and even a larger 80th birthday group. (Though after being advised to make a reservation, I do struggle somewhat with the restaurant not answering the phone for four tries!). The sea bass ceviche is delicious and surprisingly authentic — I was in Peru the month prior so it seems like the obvious choice — and the spring green risotto I have for my main is mammoth in size and equally big on flavour. Delicious.

Come morning, I’m struggling to prise myself out of the sheets. I’ve got until 12pm so there’s no real rush, but I’m determined to get out and soak up just a little more of that country air. Honestly, you could walk for miles around here. Down the hills, up the hills, around the little lake complete with lily pads, or up to Dormy House and Foxhill Manor. 

While there is a modest fitness suite and a nice yoga studio, that’s about it when it comes to the leisure facilities. I mean, I could have splurged on a cross-country segway session or archery, but even with my country-girl roots engaged, I’m not sure I’m so interested in spending on those! If you’re craving a little TLC, you can book in for a treatment at Dormy House (which has one of the most sumptuous spas in the whole of the Cotswolds), though it can be tricky to score availability. However, for those satisfied with country air, a comfy bed and good food, the Fish is the perfect Cotswolds bolthole.

We loved

The tranquility and setting of the Fish is wonderful, within easy reach of lovely Cotswolds towns too. The restaurant food is amazing, sadly there were a few things that weren't available which we would have chosen but nevertheless the alternatives were fabulous. Breakfast was fantastic too. There were lots of dogs and children at the hotel so it's obviously friendly for both!

Don’t expect

Night life or a spa.

We loved being able to take our dog and include him throughout the whole holiday; eating in the bar and being comfortable and welcomed with our dog present is such a plus. The property is top notch, the grounds, staff and rooms are all excellent in their own right but being able to take the dog to such a quality establishment makes it special for us.

We appreciated the guest Muck Boots for exploring the footpaths through the countryside. Also, I was really impressed by how dog-friendly the space is.

The service (staff all friendly and helpful), the location and views, the hotel layout, the food.… we loved everything! We stayed in a Treehouse for the weekend celebrating my husband's birthday and had a wonderful time, my husband was kindly given a birthday card from the hotel team too. The food served at both breakfast and dinner was great and we loved relaxing in the bar area beside the fire after dinner. The boot room is a great idea and we took advantage to go on a long country walk. Highly recommend the Treehouse, the baths outside are such a quirky and fun addition and the Treehouse itself is so comfy and homely feeling. We will definitely be back.

Everything about our time at The Fish Hotel: the ambience, the environment, the service, the quality, the food…literally everything. We stayed in one of the Hilly Huts, overlooking the beautiful panoramic view, and were completely secluded from the rest of the guests. We were lucky with the weather in the middle of October half term, but even if it had poured down all throughout our stay, the hotel's well-stocked Boot Room for wet and muddy treks and warm fires for book-reading sessions would have happily sufficed.

Raucous entertainment; a gaudy, nightclub-style environment or casino-like loucheness. The Fish is the epitome of tranquillity and hygge.

We loved everything about this hotel, from the moment we entered the gates of the grounds we knew we were in for an amazing stay we weren't disappointed. The ladies on the reception were lovely and welcoming, plus we were upgraded, which was a really lovely surprise. The room we stayed in was amazing, lots of room for the three of us – the bathroom was gorgeous. We enjoyed a drink from the bar outside as it was a beautiful evening, the restaurant looked very welcoming but sadly due to having a baby we decided to have a pizza to our room, which was great. We all slept so well the following morning enjoyed the most wonderful breakfast, as we sat eating our meal we said we have to come back here again next year. I'm more than sure we will do.

We loved the size of the room – we stayed in the coach house. The peace of the entire estate was brilliant. The views are stunning. Check-in staff were not that engaging and perhaps should have been less tied to sitting behind their desks. We had supper in the restaurant and the atmosphere there was lovely – I imagine in winter it would be very cosy with log fires etc. Although it's a fish-based menu, I ordered the steak and was mortified I had to send it back as it was over-cooked. Breakfast was great.

Don’t expect

The post code for the hotel in google/apple maps takes you to the wrong entrance, although this is marked we should have been told beforehand! No air-conditioning in the room and it was very hot with no way to cool it down as the windows are tiny and behing large curtains.

They've thought of everything from electric points next to the bed and mirrors (always a bugbear for me) to utilising every little bit of space in the hut for storage. The huts are beautifully decorated, the space is really private (romantic) and the breakfast hampers are a really nice touch. We already want to book our next stay.

We loved the separate buildings that the accommodation is housed in. We were in room 24 in the coach house, no other rooms adjacent. The room was spacious and not pretentious at all. It had a retreat feel to the place, and the food was fab. We are in the Hook restaurant for dinner on the first night - the seabass was superb. We also had afternoon tea, which catered very well to my gluten free diet. The bar were very accommodating and made us lots of espresso martinis that were off menu! The local village of Broadway was a nice walk (not very buggy friendly... we didn't have a baby with us but saw a couple struggling with their pram over fields). Beautiful views over the vale of Evesham after dinner in the Hook restaurant. We can recommend visiting Broadway Tower, Snowshill Lavender Farm and the Potting Shed restaurant at Dormy House. You could try some local Cotswold activities such as quad biking and clay pidgeon shooting and make sure you take a trip to Chipping Camden village.

Pop down to Broadway for a peruse of the shops and a pint in one of the old local pubs. Relaxing with afternoon tea, so many different flavours to chose from and devious little bites to eat. Hook was fantastic, a plentiful wine list and a great relaxed atmosphere whilst maintaining high standards of service to match the excellent food. Our Small Suite, was spacious with a really comfy bed, large and luxurious shower, a great little touches like the coat and boot area by the door, Nespresso machine and mini fridge. Being able to relax by the fire with a glass of wine or coffee and book was hugely relaxing and really good way to round off the mini-break.

The Fish was the perfect escape from the city.

We loved the cosy Hilly Huts which were unique and finished to a very high standard. All of the small details had been considered. We stayed in December and the huts were certainly warm enough. Our own private hot tub made the stay even more special. The outdoor pursuit opportunities were a great additional extra. We enjoyed the Segway Safari and had our own guide who was very attentive. We had a super meal at the Lygon Arms in Broadway. Broadway itself is a lovely, quaint Cotswold village.

Don’t expect

Gourmet restaurants with vibrance. We ate at the hotel one night but it was a little quiet and lacked atmosphere. Luckily Broadway and other Cotswold villages are very close by so it is very easy to get out and about to more special places to eat. Taxis can be expensive so it might be worth considering driving.
