  • Overview

    Boutique Hotel? Houses? Huts? Actually The Fish Hotel is a combination of all three and affordable with it. Hidden within a the 400 acre Farncombe estate, not far from sister hotels Foxhill Manor and Dormy House, The Fish Hotel is the first of its kind in the UK. Come here, to the heart of the Cotswold countryside, to enjoy the outdoors, to stay in a quirky hut or cosy up by the fire. Whoever you come with this stylish outdoorsy retreat is a breath of fresh air and we love it.

    The village of Broadway is a bracing 20 minute walk away across the 400-acre estate which is yours to explore during your stay. There are plenty of country pursuits to choose from including archery, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, pistol shooting or Segway Safari. They can be booked for an hour, two or try a combination and book a multi-activity day with friends or on your own, and you don't have to be a pro, beginners are welcome! Need to have a pow-wow with colleagues? Fitness fanatics will love the sprawling countryside, perfect for running, hiking and biking. Book a night away, nab one of the meeting rooms or get the team at The Fish Hotel to organise a picnic. If you are a fair weather friend it is still a great year-round hideaway! The games room has plenty to keep the competitive spirit going with a pool table and darts and with the bar next door drinks and snacks are not far away. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the activities or fireside then head out and potter about the charming Cotswold villages, pop to Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham or Oxford. Or, if like us you hope for a rainy day so you can snuggle in and watch a film, do it anyway! The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the year in the Cotswolds and takes place in the second week of March and is one of the best jump racing dates of the year where the best horses, jockeys and trainers compete for over £4million prize money. There are other festivals (wine, jazz and art) that take place throughout the year.

    If you are after a house party up to 12 (it actually sleeps 13, but we all know that is an unlucky number) then book the Farmhouse which has beautiful countryside views and is only a few minutes walk from the Lodge, home to the restaurant and bar. In addition to the 8 en-suite rooms, it has a large sitting room featuring a big cinema screen.

    Dogs are accepted so let us know when booking and The Fish will provide a bowl, bed and treats.

    The chefs at The Fish Hotel are busy in the kitchen throughout the day, creating mouth-watering dishes using local and seasonal ingredients from the Cotswolds. The restaurant welcomes guests at any time of the day, 7 days a week and serves afternoon tea every day. Soak up the views from the terrace and tuck into a succulent Sunday roast and enjoy the best of British food throughout the week. Kids menus are available.

    How to get there?

    From the north

    If you’re coming from Birmingham way, exit the M5 at junction 6 and follow the A4538 towards Evesham. After two miles, turn onto the A44 southbound (signposted Evesham). After 10 miles, the A44 joins the A46 to bypass Evesham. Rejoin the A44 (Broadway Road) at the second roundabout (first exit, signposted Broadway), and follow the road beyond Broadway for around six miles. When you reach Fish Hill (the road will bend sharply left), look out for the entrance to Farncombe coming up on the left. Turn onto the estate road, and follow it, taking the left fork, until you reach The Fish.

    From the south

    If you’re up from that London, junction 8 on the M40 will put you onto the A40 towards Oxford and Cheltenham. Head past Oxford towards Woodstock and Evesham, and at the Headington roundabout take the third exit onto the North Way, then the fourth exit at Wolvercote roundabout onto the A44 (signposted Woodstock). The A44 will take you through Woodstock and Chipping Norton. When you reach Moreton-in-Marsh, turn left at the mini-roundabout onto Moreton High Street, then right onto the A44 at the next roundabout, following signs to Evesham and Broadway. After about seven miles, you’ll pass the turn-off for Broadway Tower on the left – the entrance to Farncombe is half a mile further on the right. Follow the road up, then take the left fork to The Fish.
