It’s great place to bunk-er down for golfers and staycationers alike – and it’s getting rave reviews.

The Dormy House at Woodsome Hall Golf Club in Fenay Bridge has a new name – ‘The Cottage on the Course at Woodsome.’

Opened in 2015, the accommodation, which can sleep up to 16 people in eight ensuite rooms, has been a popular choice for hundreds of golfers enjoying the unique 16th century Grade I-listed clubhouse and highly-rated course.

Over the past couple of years Woodsome has seen an increase in demand from non-golfers looking for high quality accommodation in beautiful surroundings and, as that has prompted a re-brand.

General manager Ryan O’Connor said: “Golfers are generally familiar with the term ‘Dormy House’, but for many non-golfers it’s a description that may be new to them.

“As an increasing amount of our business is now coming from online platforms such as, trivago and Expedia, we have decided to promote the facility using a name which we feel better reflects the uniqueness and quality of the accommodation.”



Located just a short chip away from the seventh green and eighth tee, Cottage residents wake to tranquil surroundings and exceptional views.

Previous visitors have given the Cottage a big thumbs up with an impressive rating of 9.0 on and comments such as ‘Staff very friendly, lovely quiet location’, ‘The setting, surrounded by the greens and a pretty pond, was lovely’, ‘It was a very peaceful location with great views of beautiful countryside’ and ‘Loved this place and definitely returning.’

The Cottage is also a popular choice for guests attending the many events held at Woodsome Hall each year, including weddings and birthday celebrations.

To celebrate the launch of ‘The Cottage on the Course’, Woodsome Hall is offering a complimentary two-night stay for up to four people, with a free round of golf included if desired.
