Foxhill Manor comes up trumps in Sunday Times Hotel awards


 Foxhill Manor has been named the best hotel in the UK by The Sunday Times.

The private house hotel, part of the 400-acre Farncombe Estate in Broadway, the Cotswolds, won The Sunday Times Hotel of the Year 2015, just seven months after it opened for public use.

Consisting of eight bedrooms, the luxury boutique joins Dormy House Hotel and Spa and the Estate’s newest launch, The Fish as part of the Farncombe portfolio, and all three hotels were included in The Sunday Times Ultimate 100 British Hotels 2015 list.

Dormy House made the spa category and The Fish was named in the family section.

Speaking on Foxhill Manor’s win, Steve Bleach, editor of The Sunday Times travel section and one of the judges, said: "Foxhill Manor is absolutely the most romantic hotel I have ever stayed in. It is worth every penny and is subtly, seductively different from any hotel I’ve stayed in before.”

The Grade-II listed hotel can only host up to 16 guests as one time, but each bedroom is different, individually designed and many boasting views of the surrounding Estate. The food offering is special; guests can order whatever they want, whenever they want and the chef will cater to their needs.

Andrew Grahame, chief executive of Farncombe Estate said: “This is a wonderful recognition for everyone involved in all three hotels across the estate and we could not be more thrilled. But a huge well done has to go to our outstanding Foxhill Manor team; their dedication and passion to provide the best possible levels of service for our guests. 2015 has been a great year for Foxhill Manor and for Farncombe and I am even more excited about all we have in store for 2016.”
