Treat yourself to a short break in the beautiful, historic and quintessentially English town of Sherborne, Dorset. Sherborne is known for its beautiful Abbey, exclusive schools and its two Castles, the more recent one built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594. The Eastbury Hotel is an “award winning” luxury hotel in the centre of town, within walking distance of the Abbey and main shopping street. Experience the ambience of our peaceful one acre walled garden and perhaps indulge a game of croquet, table tennis or garden chess. Why not have lunch, a cream tea or dinner in our 2 AA Rosette Seasons Restaurant headed up by our executive chef Matt Street, and enjoy our award winning local cuisine. Make sure you find time to take a visit the picturesque local Dorset Countryside & nearby Jurassic Coastline. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
