Luxury UK Spa Staycations – Foxhill Manor Hotel, Cotswolds
Where? Foxhill Manor Hotel
Exactly? Cotswolds, South West England, UK.
As part of my Luxury UK Spa Staycations series here is my guide to Foxhill Manor Hotel, Cotswolds
Set within 400 acres of spectacular Cotswolds countryside, Foxhill Manor is the little sister hotel of neighbouring spa hotel Dormy House and converted-inn, The Fish.
With only eight perfectly appointed bedrooms in total, the service at Foxhill Manor feels like it’s completely bespoke and customised to each individual client.
Best time to go?
Whether it’s cold and wintry outside or the sun is shining, anytime of year is the perfect time to visit the beautiful spa hotels of the UK and Foxhill Manor, is in my opinion one of the loveliest.
I visited in November when the weather was crisp and the autumn leaves covered the valley in a beautiful blanket of gold.
Overlooking the quintessential English village of Broadway, the views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular. Whether you’re sat in the hot tub on the deck (pictured above) or enjoying breakfast from the cosy window seat in the dining room, it’s a completely peaceful and tranquil experience from the moment you arrive.
The elegant ‘arts and crafts’ era manor house has been restored and refurbished to its former glory and all modern, luxury amenities have been subtly introduced.
From roll-top baths, heavenly rain showers and designer apothecary toiletries, to trendy healthily stocked mini bars and blue tooth surround sound speakers, the rooms are perfectly equipped.
There are eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, three are suites and all named after the trees in the hotel gardens. If you want the suite with the double bathtubs overlooking the valley, check-in to the Oak Suite.
The service is completely personalised, from champagne and canopes on arrival in the living room, to sitting down with the chefs who take your personal dinner order and ask which room or bedroom you’d like to dine in. The attention to detail and service is exceptional.
Eating and Drinking
The in-house chefs use only the best locally sourced, organic, seasonal ingredients to cook up the delightful dishes on the daily changing menu.
They go through the menu with you individually, discussing taste and dietary requirements, right down to what time and which room you’d like to take your food in.
My favourite spot (apart from breakfast in bed) was the sun-filled window seat in the dining room (pictured below).
And for those partial to a little tipple, the hotel runs an honesty bar policy, so you can serve yourself whatever alcoholic drinks you like.
Activities – What To Do At Foxhill
If it’s outdoors activities you’re looking for, apart from the obvious hikes around the area, the hotel offers some very typically English sports such as archery, falconry, clay shooting and even axe throwing (I didn’t try this!).
But if like me you’re more interested in rest and relaxation, join the yoga classes, have a dip in the outdoor hot tub or simply curl up in front of roaring fires, whilst flicking through the beautiful coffee table books on display with a cup of earl grey tea.
There’s also a chic private cinema room which is available for guests to book out and watch their favourites films on the big screen and sofa.
If you’re looking for pampering, a swim and a spa treatment, you can book in to the spa at neighbouring Dormy House (the sister hotel), which is literally 5 minutes drive or a lovely countryside hike up the road.
That’s all from Foxhill Manor for now. I hope that you enjoyed my ‘Luxury UK Spa Staycations – Foxhill Manor Hotel, Cotswolds’ blog post.
