WHAT MAKES IT SO SPE­CIAL? Off the beaten track of Chip­ping Cam­p­den and Stow-On-The-Wold, Foxhill is found nearer the gen­tler, earth­ier Cotswolds town of Broadway. It’s more like a rich rel­a­tive’s manor house than a ho­tel, with eight invit­ing rooms.“Treat it like your home,” you’re told on ar­rival, and this isn’t a ho­tel plat­i­tude. There’s a chef in the kitchen who will cook up what­ever you want (hun­gry at mid­night? Chef al­lows any­one to help them­selves to his fridge and kitchen); there’s a larder out­side your room cu­rated by, it would ap­pear, Willy Wonka, and cake in the draw­ing room at teatime. Dogs are al­lowed, wellies are loaned, while din­ner is served in any house­hold nook that takes your fancy.

THE ONLY DOWN­SIDE: Be­ing told it’s time to leave and pay up.

WHO GOES? Cou­ples with un­der­stated class. That said, a live­lier scene can be found down the road at Foxhill’s sis­ter prop­erty, Dormy House, where there’s an amaz­ing restau­rant, The Gar­den Room (book ahead), plus a gym, spa and all the beau­ti­ful peo­ple you could ever want to min­gle with. IT WOULD BE A CRIME NOT TO… Re­turn again. That, or use the spa. It’s won ev­ery award go­ing. The mas­sages are ex­cel­lent but the mani/pedis are pure fun, with a pros­ecco bar to keep you en­ter­tained.

From £359 per night, in­clud­ing break­fast; Foxhill manor.com
