I have now stayed at the Dormy House Hotel three times--twice with family, and once with friends on a cycling trip. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Located between Broadway and Chipping Campden, the Dormy House is in a beautiful, quiet location with plenty of parking. Their "escape rates" which run Sunday-Thursday are an especially good deal; you get room and half board for what you'd normally pay for a room in a nearby town. I strongly recommend dining in the Barn Owl in the evening over the dining room.
For walkers, there are three walks right out of the Dormy house, which they provide maps for at the front desk.
The best rooms in this hotel are to be had in the Danish quarter--the newer section which is off to itself, more modern and roomier.
The Dormy House is in a beautiful location, with vistas looking out over the Cotswolds. You can play croquet, read a book in the library, or relax with a drink by the fire.
A couple of minor quibbles--while the staff at dinner couldn't have been more attentive, I found the breakfast staff to be, well, needing some lessons from the dinner staff! Toast had to asked for three times. We couldn't get the waiter's attention to order for almost 30 minutes. Parts of the order were missing. One person wasn't served while the rest were. Again, this wasn't reflective of one occasion, but three separate visits.
Even more minor, the shampoos provided cannot be opened by wet hands in the shower, as the foil tab simply breaks away. I put this down to a fault in packaging the first two times, but on my third visit it was still an issue.
Aside from that, I would stay here again and again.
