A Bit About Us

Once upon a time, in the 17th century, that is, Dormy House went by the name Willersey Hill Farm, and its inhabitants, rather than enjoying fantastic food and indulgent spa treatments, spent most of their time cultivating the surrounding land. Fast forward to the 1940s, and the Broadway Golf Club next door took a shine to the farm, bought it and named it Dormy House after their favourite golfing term (a ‘dormy’ is an unbeatable round).

In 1977 it passed to the same family that has owned it ever since, and over the last 35 years has grown to become one of the most beloved hotels in the Cotswolds, renowned for its personal service, passionate management and luxuriously laid-back atmosphere.

One of the family…

Dormy House is not alone. Part of Farncombe Estate the 400-acre country wonderland that stretches from Broadway village to the top of Fish Hill, the hotel has two younger siblings that live down the road:  Foxhill Manor and the Fish Hotel.

Foxhill Manor is a private house hotel with eight unique bedrooms and suites. But that doesn’t quite do it justice. A Grade-II listed Arts and Crafts country manor refreshed and revitalised for the 21st century, Foxhill is a new type of stay: all the character and charm of a boutique-hotel hideaway, served up with heartfelt personal service and an easy-going at-home atmosphere.

The Fish Hotel Part boutique hotel, part holiday village, part outdoors discovery centre, the Fish is an indulgent-but-affordable base to explore the Cotswolds and soak up the scenery. A back-to-nature bolthole with a little touch of luxury, the Fish has 67 contemporary bedrooms, spread over an attractive cluster of buildings. Its on-site activity centre offers outdoor pursuits galore, and its heart, the Restaurant at the Fish provides a scenic setting to dine on seasonal British produce surrounded by wonderful woodland views.
