The Eastbury Hotel is a traditional, privately owned hotel, where your individual requirements will be fully catered for.
The Eastbury is a fine example of an early Georgian residence. Typical of the period, it has graceful, light and spacious rooms which offer home-from-home comfort throughout. There is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere that immediately makes you feel at ease.
Nicola and Paul King are proud of the exceptional level of personal service, customer care and the food they offer. This is recognised by the English Tourism Council ‘Silver Award’, an accolade based purely on quality, and an exclusive award that few hotels in the country can boast. The hotel is unique in the fact that although it is in the centre of town, it has one acre of walled garden and lawn behind it, giving it a “country house hotel” feel. The hotel is also ideally situated in the quiet, lower part of Old Sherborne, within walking distance of the Abbey, the shops and the castles.
