    Playful treehouses and bookable ‘hideaways’ are being added to the Costwolds’ luxury The Fish hotel as a part of its £5 million renovation and expansion plans.

    The luxury Cotswolds hideaway is undergoing a Herculean expansion, which rolls out throughout the first half of 2018, with some of the accommodation ready for guests by March, and others by June and July. New accommodation veers from historic rooms in the converted stable of the countryside property, to newly built huts, with modern day amenities, in the middle of nature. All accommodation has been designed to recreate the splendour of gentle British countryside living, just with modern day amenities.

    Private baths big enough for two out on the deck

    Hideaway Huts have been designed by joining two bespoke Shepherd Huts together. They have underfloor heating, and L-shaped living rooms with a log fire, as well as private baths big enough for two out on the deck, under the stars.

    The Fish hotel say treehouses are one of the childhood memories we can take with us into adulthood. These grown up-sized houses immersed within the woodlands of the Cotsworlds are slightly more functional than the Hideaway Huts, with two bedrooms, able to accommodate four in total. Each has its own tree incorporated into the design, rising up through it.

    For groups of us to 15 guests, The Farmhouse provides more of a conventionally homely experience, within the comfort of four actual brick walls. Originally the farmer of the land’s private home, the house has views out over the stirring countryside.

    Or rest in the Coach House, which has been segmented into a selection of traditionally fitted bedrooms, all with sweeping countryside views.

    A new seafood restaurant is to open in March called Hook, led by the hotel’s gourmet chef, Martin Burge. Options to ‘gather’ your own food, or ‘feast’ outdoors, on the decking, will also be available when the hotel re-opens.

    The Fish reopens 6 March 2018 and new treehouses are available from May, check website for specific booking dates
