Tucked away on the handsome Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds, alongside Dormy House and Foxhill Manor, The Fish Hotel is a boutique property with some extraordinary features. A recent £4 million revamp heralds the arrival of several new additions to the hotel: alongside new rooms and suites in The Coach House and Farmhouse, there are now three show- stopping luxury treehouses accessed via rope bridge (perfect for a family escape) and a collection of five converted shepherd’s huts dotted around the grounds, with cosy double beds and freestanding baths. A stroll down the hill leads to Hook, the restaurant helmed by culinary director Martin Burge. Unusually for the Cotswolds, he’s introduced a delectable new maritime-inspired menu. Eat on the large paved terrace, or in the airy dining room, with an open kitchen for watching the skilled chefs at work. It’s a fabulous spot for families and dogs: alongside the cinema and children’s woodland playzone there is an agility course specifically for canines and – are you ready? – an outdoor ‘dogtub’.
