The Eastbury Hotel – An Elegant Sherborne Hotel in the Heart of Hardy’s Dorset

27 unique rooms | Bijou garden spa | Sleeps 1 – 6

In the heart of Thomas Hardy’s Dorset stands a handsome Georgian hotel with all the poise, charm and good-looks of a period-drama romantic hero. This is The Eastbury Hotel & Spa in Sherborne. And if you fall into its arms for a weekend, don’t be surprised if you leave your heart behind.

From £140 – £800

When you stand outside the The Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne, Dorset, you get an immediate sense that this is a Sherborne hotel of note. The hotel has a striking Georgian townhouse facade that dates back to 1740 and is perfectly at home on Sherborne’s pretty streets.

Its handsome red-brick exterior has little changed since its days as a gentleman’s residence and gives nothing away about the Tardis-like spaces that await you beyond the front door. Step inside and there are more accommodation options and dining experiences than you could wish for, whether you’re staycationing as a couple, on your own or as a family on a weekend in Sherborne.

The Rooms

The Eastbury Hotel rooms and suites come in various sizes and unique designs. The 27 guests rooms in the hotel itself are a mix of Georgian elegance and contemporary charisma – with interiors inspired by the flowers, herbs and trees that grow in the hotel’s award-winning walled garden. There’s a room for everyone: solo travellers, couples and families with small children.

Victorian Garden Potting Shed Suites. In addition to the guest rooms, are 5 luxury Victorian Garden Potting Shed Suites, all of which are hidden away within the hotel’s beautiful walled garden. Recently added to the Eastbury Hotel, these unique Victorian Garden Potting Sheds are purposefully designed to resemble a traditional Victorian garden potting shed; they even have eco-friendly moss and sedum roofs, speckled with wildflowers.

Each one boasts a light, spacious room with a marshmallowy bed, gorgeous en-suite wet room, and your own secluded patio which you step onto via modern tri-fold doors. There’s also a welcome decanter of sloe gin, a bottle of wine and complimentary local teas and coffees.

Eastbury Cottage. Just a short hop away from The Eastbury hotel is the sweetly sublime Eastbury Cottage – a homely end-of-terrace 17th-century cottage that sleeps 6 in three gorgeous bedrooms (all come with robes, slippers and en-suite bathrooms). Everything you could want for a relaxing cottage break in Sherborne is here: a large, beautifully comfy living room with an Inglenook fireplace and a wood-burner; a farm-house style kitchen for you all to come together as a family for breakfasts, dinners and lunches; and your own garden and hot tub for relaxed sunny days and nights.

Best of all, when you stay in Eastbury Cottage or the Victorian Garden Potting Sheds you have at your disposal all the wonderful facilities of the Eastbury Hotel. Including the spa’s mini-gym, steam room and sauna, the hotel’s cocktail bar, unique garden pod to dine in, plus the on-site award-winning conservatory restaurant, Seasons – headed up by Masterchef The Professionals finalist and multi award-winning chef, Matthew Street.
