Want to stay in a “Very nearly perfect” hotel?

When Dormy House Hotel in the Cotswolds was named Hotel of the Year by Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it was described as very nearly perfect. The word nearly in the description makes it far more convincing than if a slew of superlatives had been thrown around. Because we are all know people make great hotels and people don’t do perfect…
Dormy House is a 17th century Worcestershire farmhouse that got its name in the 1940s when for awhile it was owned by a neighbouring golf course. Dormy means an unbeatable round.
It has a range of facilities including log fires and a luxury spa. Some rooms come with their own hot tub. It even has  a low(er) cost option which involes staying in the Potting Shed. There are three dog-friendly rooms with access to their own courtyard and the spa offers a therapeutic touch massage for people with cancer.

It is in Broadway which, with 2000+ residents, is considered big as villages go. Over the years it has been the home of a disproportionally large number of  creative people including the composer Edward Elgar, the painter John Singer Sargent, J.M.Barrie of Peter Pan fame and William Morris, the design genius behind the Arts and Craft movement.
