The Eastbury – Sherborne, Dorset
An early Georgian Grade II-listed gentleman’s residence in the charming historic town of Sherborne, The Eastbury is a multi award-winning five-star hotel, fully refurbished in country house style by its owners, Peter and Lana de Savary. Guests keep returning for its understated charm, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, stand-out restaurant and great location as a base to explore the glorious Dorset countryside. The 26 bedrooms are split between traditional luxury and contemporary chic, full of colour and abstract paintings. The fabrics are superb quality and the bedrooms all enjoy crisp Egyptian cotton bedlinen. Five Victorian Garden Potting Shed Suites are discreetly located within the lovely garden, as is its boutique luxury spa, which has a wild meadow roof and inviting circular wooden door. On the à la carte menu at Seasons, executive chef Matthew Street’s acclaimed restaurant, dishes include burrata and aubergine agnolotti, and charred monkfish – tuck in on the delightful leafy terrace. A new addition to The Eastbury is a renovated three-bedroom cottage, ideal for family breaks.
