A Beautiful Luxury Country House Hotel and Restaurant

The Grange at Oborne is a beautiful, three-star country house hotel, set within the rolling hills of West Dorset, just one mile from the charming town of Sherborne and seven miles from Yeovil.  The hotel is owned by Karenza and Ken Mathews and managed by their daughter Jennifer Fletcher and her husband Jonathan. Karenza was a well-known table tennis player who was twice Women’s Champion of England.  See the About Us section for more details about the family.

Formerly a manor house, The Grange has undergone a transformation to a luxury country house hotel with eighteen bedrooms and a delightful restaurant overlooking the 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 tranquillity that the hotel has to offer. It is a place to unwind, relax and regenerate. Family-owned and run, The Grange prides itself on its friendly staff.

The Grange is in the perfect position to explore Dorset, Somerset and historic Wessex. There are plenty of things for you to do during your stay with us: 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 - all are within easy reach of the hotel.

If all of that sounds a little too much, how about sipping a glass of wine in the garden whilst reading a good book; or perhaps a stroll through the pretty village of Oborne where you can meet the village ducks waddling along the lane next to the stream?

All this adds up to a wonderful location for business or pleasure, for that special family occasion or for the perfect wedding.

Please note; due to our rural location, mobile telephone reception can be patchy.  Similarly, broadband signals are slow as we do not yet enjoy the benefits of fibre. We expect to have fibre to the premises installed by March 2020.
