Soho Farmhouse – Oxfordshire
Soho Farmhouse needs no introduction, but for those who are unfamiliar, it is the Cotswolds outpost of the world renowned private members’ club-turned-hotel business, Soho House. Aside from the usual outstanding wine and dining options, there are customised bicycles for exploring the grounds, an indoor-out pool, a stable yard providing horse rides, floodlit tennis courts, a gym with studio courses and a massive Cowshed spa. There are 13 treatment rooms, six mani-pedi seats, and a salon space here. (Think about trying the Soho Skin facials, which combine electronics with the group’s carefully developed cosmetics.)
The Lazy Lake is a two-hour adventure among forests that may be booked as an extension of the spa amenities. Based on temperature ‘contrast treatment,’ you will travel from a restorative dip in a sunken hot tub – equipped with face masks and drinks if desired – to an ice room, steam room, and infrared sauna cabin. The tranquil setting is completely lovely, and the experience is exhilarating.
Soho Farmhouse provides all you need for a relaxing countryside getaway. The grounds are car-free (save for antique, renovated milk floats and Porsches for all your transit requirements), and bikes and wellies may be rented. Outdoor activities to attempt include clay pigeon shooting, tennis, horseback riding, and boating. There’s also the Electric Barn theatre for film screenings, Soho Home and The Store X for shopping, and a planned event schedule with workshops, talks, bands, and parties.

It’s time to disconnect from the mundane and reconnect with your senses.
