The hotel, which launched House Spa in February has been named winning spa hotel in the Sunday Times Ultimate 100 British Hotels, a hugely-influential list for travellers at home and abroad.
“Most luxury spas fail to grasp that while good design is appreciated, great massage is essential. This 17th-Century farmhouse outside the time-warp town of Broadway delivers both style and substance. The spa interiors are cool and spacious, the therapists excellent. Choose from naughty, nice and nutritious menus at the cafe, hang out at the champagne nail bar (men, too – their demand for manicures is rising) or soak yourself in the alfresco hydro pool before dinner in the Potting Shed pub or the dressier Garden Room.”
“I am immensely proud of all the team,” said Farncombe Estate CEO Andrew Grahame. “These are fabulous achievements and very well deserved. To win the Sunday Times Spa category in just six and a half months is quite extraordinary.”
