    Dormy House, above the picturesque Cotswold village of Broadway, has officially opened its doors following a multi-million refurbishment and brilliant transformation. Keeping all that is best about the Cotswolds – oak panelled beams, flagstone flooring, Cotswold stone and open log fires – the hotel has been imbued with a new spirit and stunning “Farmhouse Chic” interiors. Since the early 17th century, the original farmhouse has stood; first as a family home and for the past 36 years as a much-loved family-owned hotel. It has re-emerged with stunning interiors by London-based Todhunter Earle, following a dramatic redesign which has opened up the heart of the hotel and seen the creation of two new restaurants.

    A stylish, open-plan reception leads onto The Potting Shed – the natural hub of the hotel: by day a rustic, informal but buzzy place to meet and by night a destination bar and restaurant. The new Garden Room restaurant complements this all-day eatery, serving dishes created with passion by Head Chef Paul Napper. Large glass windows cleverly bring the outside in and overlook a landscaped garden by Chris Beardshaw – the Chelsea RHS Gold-winning garden designer and TV presenter. The transformation completes with the opening of House Spa in early 2014 – a brand new spa by award-wining spa designers Sparcstudio and Howard Spa Consulting.
