A Bit About Us

Dormy House started life as a 17th Century Cotswold farmhouse with flagstone floors, log fires and acres of land.  Some things haven’t changed, and the hotel today still has the real log fires, panelled walls and long views over the Cotswold hills.

The original house was called Willersey Hill Farm and its owners farmed the surrounding land.  In the mid 1940s, the house was bought by Broadway Golf Club next door and given its new name: Dormy House.  (Dormy is a term for an “unbeatable” round of golf!)

Dormy House has been in the same family ownership since 1977, when it became the subject of the first big building project.   In 35 years, the hotel has gone from strength to strength, building a loyal following and a reputation for excellent, personal service.


Today, we are still privately owned by the same family and passionately run…Ohh and of course a multi-million pound investment has remade Dormy House for a new generation of discerning Cotswold visitors of course! The hotel is part of the Farncombe Estate, 400-acres of land that spans from Broadway to the top of the famous Fish Hill, which also includes our sister hotels – Foxhill Manor and Farncombe Conference Centre.
