The Fish Hotel, Cotswolds

The Fish Hotel

Situated on a hill overlooking the village of Broadway, The Fish Hotel is a wonderful rural retreat offering sweeping views over woodland and rolling hills. It has 63 rooms and five rustic shepherd's huts spread over various buildings laid out in the style of a traditional Cotswolds village.

Beautifully designed in a chic but rustic, pared-back style, the rooms feature soothing, neutral tones with retro features and faux sheepskin throws. The small but luxurious Hilly Huts are located in a secluded area away from the main lodge and have wood burning stoves and private hot tubs.

A seasonally changing menu is available in the restaurant while casual, light bites are served in the lounge. There is also a fully equipped games room.
