Long Street, Sherborne, Dorset, DT9 3BY
Only a couple of short strides from the medieval market town of Sherborne, The 4-star, boutique Eastbury Hotel comprises a Georgian townhouse (Dated 1740) and a tremendous walled garden. Recently procured by Peter and Lana de Savary, this is a warm, glad and inviting lodging providing individual attention to detail and first class service.
What makes a stay at The Eastbury Hotel unique?
Initially designed as an 18th century Georgian gentleman’s residence, The Eastbury's rooms are permeated with enormous warmth and character, and offer a genuine home from home.
What are the rooms and facilities on offer at The Eastbury Hotel?
The Eastbury offering goes far beyond the stylish rooms and widely reputed food. Guests have the choice of two relaxing parlours to unwind in, a library and snooker room, plus lovely walled patio nurseries and private feasting if required! There are sumptuous sofas to curl up on, a warming hearth, boardgames to be played (a round of chess, backgammon or scaffold), and plenty of fun to be had in the garden.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Sherborne area?
Sherborne Castle and the medieval vestiges of its predecessor Sherborne Old Castle are found just toward the East. A short journey away are the National Trust properties of Montacute, Stourhead and Tintinhull Gardens. Family agreeable days out incorporate The Haynes Motor Museum and The Fleet Air Arm Museum. For walkers and cyclists there's a large number of shocking neighborhood trails including the North Dorset Trailway and courses through the Blackmore Vale and the Dorset Downs with numerous preservation territories and destinations of unique intrigue. Further afield, but no less worth a visit, is Dorset's renowned Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, and just under a hour via vehicle.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
The restaurant called 'Seasons', and as the name suggests, menus mirror the changing seasons. Executive Chef Matt Street and his group assemble the freshest and best fixings to make a tempting assortment of customary dishes each with their own inventive curve.
The Eastbury Hotel is part of the following Inspirations:
"The tranquil Eastbury Hotel consists of listed a Georgian townhouse from 1740 and a number of new buildings constructed in its beautiful walled garden. This calm, old Sherborne property was recently acquired by Peter de Savary, the entrepreneur who once owned John O'Groats and Land's End. His wife Lana has since attractively redesigned and rethought the hotel.
The staff are enthusiastic and they’re very proud of improvements being made around the Eastbury, especially the new Potting Shed Garden Suites that will open this summer.
The hotel’s restaurant, Seasons lies down a long corridor decorated with art from the de Savarys’ personal collection. There is a fascinating display of original art work commissioned for the New Yorker magazine during the Golden Age of Illustration (1880-1920). For instructive comparison the final magazine covers are displayed alongside the artists’ originals.
Once you arrive it is clear that Seasons is a garden-room extension on the back of the hotel with views of the extensive garden and its changing colours throughout the year.
As the name suggests, menus are designed to reflect the shift in local produce as the year moves round changing with the seasons. Executive chef Matt Street and head chef Richard Street work together to serve traditional dishes in an innovative way. The seven-course tasting menu dinner – exceptional value at £45 – includes such surprises as Vale of Camelot cheese brûlée, Devon crab with cucumber & horseradish, and rump of lamb with caramelised red onions and Greek yoghurt. For preprandials, I’d particularly recommend the range of local gins, which include Lilliput and Pothecary from Dorset and Newton House Gin from Somerset.
Guests can also dine in splendid isolation in The Pod, by arrangement. This circular glass and wood structure on the edge of the croquet lawn looks like one of the gondolas from the London Eye. It is in fact a small summer house and can also be used for weddings, should your dining experience turn out to be more romantic than you expected.
