Stay overnight in Oborne!

BEST WESTERN The Grange Hotel Oborne offers beautiful, 3-star country house accommodation, set within the rolling hills of West Dorset, just one mile from the charming town of Sherborne and seven miles from Yeovil.

Formerly a manor house, BEST WESTERN The Grange Hotel has undergone a transformation to a luxury family owned and run country house hotel with 18 bedrooms and a delightful restaurant overlooking floodlit gardens. Our quiet rural setting at the edge of the village is the reason why many of our guests return year after year to enjoy the peace and tranquility! The hotel is in the perfect position to explore Dorset, Somerset and historic Wessex, with plenty of things to do: Stonehenge, Longleat Estate and Safari Park, Stourhead House and Gardens, shopping in Sherborne or Bath, horse riding, shooting and hot air ballooning to name but a few.

It would be hard to find a more peaceful spot than the village of Oborne. The Yeo stream meanders through the village and ducks waddle about in the street! The hotel itself is the sum of the people who work here, we aim to exceed expectations and create a unique place in which all guests can feel relaxed and at home.

It all adds up to a wonderful location for business or pleasure, for that special family occasion or for the perfect wedding!
