Welcome

dog friendly accommodation, near shaftesbury dorset

Through the rolling hills of Shaftesbury down into the village of Ludwell local girl Nina Bartlett found her perfect chocolate box Inn. Having trained in law Nina decided to swap the commercial rush for village life – “you can take the country girl out of the country but you will never take the country life out of the girl”… and so it began accompanied by her Labrador, Buddy.

Join Nina and her young aspiring team at The Grove for fantastic food including fresh seasonal specials and fine Badger Ales brewed by Hall and Woodhouse which travels only a short distance from the brewery in Blandford to the Grove. Beneath the thatch you will find 6 en suite 4* star AA rated bedrooms complete with residents lounge, perfect for recouping following a day of exploring the stunning local area or sipping a bottle of wine into the evening.
