New owners Chris Staines and Silvana Bandini warmly welcome you to The Ollerod, a historic luxury country retreat with an outstanding restaurant in rural West Dorset.

Imagine yourself settling in by cracking log fire as dusks turns to darkness through the stone-mullioned windows and the soothing glow of candle light illuminates centuries-old oak beams. Here you are surround by beautiful countryside, a tapestry of history only minutes from the ancient, heritage-listed coastline. The Ollerod's 13 en-suite bedrooms are plush yet elegant, classic yet very contemporary. Individually designed the rooms feature stylish furniture and lighting, Egyptian cotton linen and coffee & tea making facilities.

In the acclaimed restaurant Head Chef Chris Staines takes inspiration from the regions organic meat, freshly caught fish and locally grown vegetables. Chris’s food is innovative and inspirational -  focus is on the star ingredient of each dish and it is executed to perfection.   The ever-evolving menus reflect the seasonal ingredients available, and alongside the á la carte menu is the ‘small plates’ menu which gives diners the opportunity to share and try many dishes.

With its beautiful walled garden, The Ollerod is in the heart of quaint and lively Beaminster. Deep in the spectacular countryside immortalised as Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, The Ollerod is also on the doorstep of the World Heritage-listed Jurassic Coast - 95 miles of unspoiled coastline crammed with 185 million years of fossil history.
