The Grosvenor Shaftesbury

The Grosvenor Shaftesbury

****

Crowning Dorset’s beautiful Blackmore Vale, Shaftesbury has Old-England charm down to the last cobble, but now that The Grosvenor Shaftesbury hotel is on the scene, there’s something for the more modern-minded visitor, too.

Highlights:

  • In summer, dine in the courtyard garden

  • Central setting in old-town Shaftesbury

  • Ideal stop-off en route to Cornwall

An assortment of home-made truffles and fudge

Also need to know:

Pets are welcome – ask ahead. There’s one room adapted for mobility-impaired guests, and a lift to the first floor.If you plan to explore, ask the hotel to prepare you a packed lunch. Transport can be arranged if you fancy a few rounds on the nearby Rushmore golf course or a microlight flight from Compton Abbas Airfield.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

I'm excited. We're going to a bison farm. I had no idea we had bison in the UK, let alone Dorset. Nor, for that matter, am I especially clear on what a bison actually is. But here we are on the road out of Shaftesbury – where we've been staying at the new Grosvenor Arms hotel – in search of a creature which is a bit like buffalo, and which probably makes an excellent roast.

Our decision to explore offbeat agricultural initiatives is the result of round three of ‘Brown-Sign Bingo’, an edifying game we’ve invented that involves letting Visit Britain’s helpful signposts tell us what to do next.
