Dormy House shooting party
As the grouse shooting season opens this week, Dormy House Hotel near Broadway has been named one of the top 12 shooting hotels in the UK. It was crowned Best Midlands Shoot Hotel in the 2014 Good Shoot Hotel Awards, organised by the website Guns on Pegs in conjunction with Field Magazine.

“We are thrilled to be given this accolade which recognises the care we give to shooting events at Dormy House,” says sales and marketing manager Vicki Jewitt. “Since we opened Foxhill Manor in May, we also now have the perfect exclusive-use venue for shooting parties and a wide range of exciting outdoor pursuits.

“Farncombe Estate is a beautiful location for any group. We have lots of wildlife and long views. Ours isn’t a shooting estate, but there are numerous shoots on our doorstep and we have developed a great relationship with all of them. We are able to store guns and cartridges in separate locked safes and – most importantly – we know how to look after our sporting guests!

“For instance, we have drying rooms for muddy boots and wet clothes – and we can even dress the dinner table to suit the sporting theme.”

Dogs are welcome in the lounges and public areas at Foxhill Manor, and in certain bedrooms at Dormy House. The area is surrounded by great walks and footpaths.

The Good Shoot Hotel Awards are based entirely on votes and testimonials of visiting hotel guests. Comments included: “The Dormy is perfectly situated for a number of shoots in and around the Cotswolds. Its accommodation and dining facilities are second to none. After a cold day out shooting, the beautiful log fire and cosy sofas are a perfect end to the day.”

Another shooting party guest commented: “Dormy House offers the very best in luxury combined with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The ideal place to unwind after an eventful day.”

2014 is the inaugural year of the Good Shoot Hotel Awards by Guns on With 64,000 members, it is the UK’s largest shooting sports website. Also backing the awards is The Field, the UK’s oldest country-pursuits magazine, founded in 1853. The Field is aimed at those who love shooting, fishing, hunting along with good food and wine.
