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

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 Victorian Garden Potting Shed at The Eastbury Hotel Sherborne

In addition to the guest rooms at The Eastbury Hotel, 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 and complimentary local teas and coffees. We stayed in Sage – and enjoyed every dreamy minute of our mini break there.
