For those seeking harmony with the natural world – but with the indulgence of pure pampering and a glut of divine dishes – a luxurious stay at Peter and Lana de Savary’s Sherborne hotel is utterly irresistible
The Eastbury oozes with Georgian glamour and a visit feels a little like stepping into another age – albeit with contemporary touches that provide 21st century thrills.
Forget tradition when it comes to the cooking, however: this is no old-school duck à l’orange hotel menu. Exec chef of its Seasons restaurant, Matthew Street, crafts inventive modern British dishes inspired by seasonal produce from local suppliers.
Our competition winner and pal will be treated to a seven course tasting menu – complete with wine flight – so they’ll get to explore way beyond the standard starter, main and pud.
When it comes to accommodation for the night, more treats await the lucky pair as the walled gardens reveal a delightful hideaway in the form of five modern – yet classically inspired – Victorian Garden Potting Shed Suites.
Discreetly tucked away, they harbour sumptuous bedrooms with private terraces. Eco-friendly moss and sedum roofs are laced with flowers, blending seamlessly with the green surroundings, while a fire pit provides an opportunity to cosy up under a throw. Inside, rear trifold doors and a large roof light fill the spacious retreat with a natural glow.
And, once roots are put down, pure indulgence follows at the magical spa (completed just last month) hidden among the trees. Soak in the hydrotherapy pool, relax in the sauna and rejuvenate with a deep-tissue massage.
Back-to-nature vibes, utter indulgence and gourmet gratification? This one ticks all the boxes.
To be in with a chance of winning just answer the following question …
What is the name of the Hotel’s restaurant?
