Before the lure of a mythological City of Gold called Sir Walter Raleigh out to sea, he fell in love with picturesque Sherborne and its castle, and leased the land from Queen Elizabeth. He ought to have retired in this charming Dorset market town—rather than continue his ill-advised El Dorado adventures.

All that glitters is not necessarily good for you, but an Escape to The Eastbury is certainly worth its weight in precious metal. For £169 you can indulge in a two-night stay for two in a Double Room at this boutique townhouse hotel—up to a £339 value. With no two rooms the same, but all luxuriously inviting, you can also sit back and unwind outside within an acre of wonderous walled garden.

Dine one night at the hotel's two AA Rosette restaurant, where you'll sample locally sourced and seasonal delights. Start with the likes of treacle glazed salmon with fennel bhajis or roasted Lyme Bay scallops with wild garlic linguine, before moving on to a duck breast and confit leg with butter bean purée and Rampisham pancetta, or wild bass with coastal finds and shrimps.

After getting ready for the day with your included breakfast each morning, venture out from the hotel to the bustling historic main street, filled with independent shops set amongst awe-inspiring architecture. The nearby Sherborne Castle, built by Sir Walter Raleigh himself, is surrounded by the shimmering Sherborne Lake, while the ruins of the original Sherborne Old Castle that initially caught the explorer's eye is set a little further north amongst serene countryside.

The Eastbury is also perfectly placed for those wishing to branch out and explore all that Somerset and West Dorset have to offer; such as the nearby towns of Yeovil and Dorchester, or a trip down to the ancient splendour of the Jurassic Coast.

Raleigh came a cropper chasing a 24-karat on a stick, but today's Escape is the real deal: seize it now and delve into Dorset's many treasures instead.

  • "The Conservatory Restaurant at the Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne, is light, airy, and individual."
