Originally built in 1896 as a private house, Grasmere House offers superb views and is just the right size for offering a wealth of amenities without being impersonally big – a wonderful spot for family holidays, a weekend escape or a memorable romantic wedding. Four rooms feature sumptuous four-poster beds; for families, there is a three-bedroom apartment with separate lounge, and some of the hotel’s twin rooms cater for triple or quadruple family accommodation.
Grasmere House’s lovely conservatory restaurant, the Bistro on the River has splendid views, which offer an excellent accompaniment to the dining experience. The menu (which is often influenced by the best-quality offerings on the local market!) is a tasty mix of classic English cuisine and a world of eclectic global influences.
Of course, there’s far more than just good food and a good night’s sleep to be had in Salisbury and surrounding environs – some of England’s best attractions are within an afternoon’s journey, from Stonehenge and stately homes to the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral, just a short walk – or a glance! – from your doorstep.
