Luxury rules at this converted 17th-century farmhouse overlooking the Vale of Evesham from high on the Cotswolds ridge. Having been firmly brought into the 21st century, it now has the best of approachable contemporary design, both indoors and out. You can make a visit to the sumptuous spa or cozy up in a firelit lounge before making your way to the guest rooms, each with high-end individuality and a luxurious bathroom. The sophisticated Garden Room restaurant (£45 fixed-price menu) fronts a flower garden designed by a Chelsea Flower Show Gold winner, while the Potting Shed has more rustic style and fare. The hotel is 2 miles north of Broadway.
