If your 2021 calendar is looking a little bare (or, if it’s anything like ours, terrifyingly empty), may we recommend booking a greedy getaway to the most glamorous of garden potting sheds?
With so much change and uncertainty, we could all do with something to look forward to, and a long, lazy weekend in a luxury suite is just the kind of pencilled-in plan that’ll make winter a little easier.
The team at The Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne know their guests yearn for total relaxation and escapism, which is why they’ve recently renovated five of the potting sheds in the hotel’s Victorian walled garden.
The self-contained suites have been thoroughly modernised so guests can enjoy their own private space while also taking advantage of facilities which include a contemporary spa and excellent two-AA rosette restaurant.
At Seasons Restaurant, executive chef and MasterChef: The Professionals finalist Matthew Street crafts beautiful dishes from the finest local ingredients. The best way to experience his clever creations is the sumptuous seven-course tasting menu which features delights such as roast lamb with tandoori-spiced cauliflower, cucumber yogurt, black dhal and curry leaf.
We’ve teamed up with The Eastbury Hotel to treat one lucky reader (and a friend) to a luxury stay in one of the Victorian garden potting shed suites, complete with seven-course tasting menu, one hour use of the spa and a Dorset cooked-breakfast the next morning.
The question: What is the name of Seasons Restaurant’s head chef?
