Stylish, countrified, welcoming and tasty, we are only two hours drive (M3) or train (Salisbury Station) from London.


Taste our seasonal menus showcasing produce only sourced locally where possible and grown in The Inn’s cottage gardens. The drinks list includes local ales, a famous gin collection and hand selected wine list. Relax in our sitting area, Village Bar or outside on The Terrace or Garden Lawn.


Stay in one of the nine en suite bedrooms with ridiculously comfortable beds, crisp white linen and Melyn Tregwynt milled blankets. Fresh milk, ground coffee, Pavillion Teas and cookies are refreshed daily.


The Inn sits in the area called the Cranborne Chase, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been used for centuries as a playground for outdoor pursuits and sports. We are on the edge of The New Forest with its plethora of activities and views or head to the Jurassic Coast or Stonehenge both a 30 minute drive.


The Inn has served the village and played host to travellers from all walks of life for centuries including Thomas Hardy, whose Chaseborough from Tess of the D’Urbervilles was based on Cranborne, visited the Inn in the late C19th and smugglers used the Inn as a base during the 18th century.
