The Grosvenor Arms Overview

Location: Shaftesbury, Dorset, England

An inn since medieval times, the Grosvenor Arms is located in the bustling centre of the historic market town of Shaftesbury, gateway to the South West. Shaftesbury’s most famous landmark is Gold Hill, the steep cobbled street flanked by traditional cottages and made famous by director Ridley Scott’s renowned Hovis advert. The Grosvenor Arms hotel is only 100 metres from Gold Hill. 

The Grosvenor Arms has been lovingly updated and refurbished in a boutique style whilst retaining a wealth of period detail and charm. There are 16 cosy bedrooms, all with flat screen TVs, Dualit Espresso machines and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

The hotel’s popular bar serves a selection of ales, wines and cocktails as well as food and the hotel restaurant offers modern British food with a focus on locally sourced ingredients.

As well as great looking shopping and walks visitors can travel further afield from Shaftesbury to Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Lulworth Cove and Sherbourne. The great country houses of Longleat, Wilton and Sherbourne Castle are all around 30 minutes away.
