Situated now on a 12-acre (49,000 m2) garden, the long term farm site was known until its conversion to a hotel in 2003 as Twatley Manor, and at one time was home to the master of the Beaufort Hunt.
Bought by a Swiss hotel chain, the house was renamed and redesigned into a Swiss-influenced interpretation of modern Cotswolds architecture, added to by a construction team led by MITIE Group with a 12,000 square feet (1,100 m2) spa and health complex. In October 2007, the 23 bedroom hotel which is part of the Relais & Chateaux group was voted ninth "Best Holiday and Wellness Hotel in the World" (number one in the UK) by the Swiss business publication, Bilanz.
The hotel has two restaurants (the Dining Room and Le Mazot) and a non-residents bar. In 2005, the Dining Room won its first Michelin star under head chef Martin Burge. In January 2010, the Dining Room was awarded a second Michelin Star.
