A Beautiful Georgian Coaching Inn in the Centre of Blandford Forum
Just a stones throw from the brewery in Blandford Forum, The Crown is reportedly the oldest inn in Dorset and has been a residence since the 10th Century. The Inn joined the Hall and Woodhouse family in 1931 and in 2017 the company spent over £3 million on refurbishing the bedrooms, bar and dining room, resurrecting the beautiful Georgian Coaching Inn to its former splendour. With 27 well-appointed bedrooms, some with Georgian theming, a beautiful outside patio, a separate dining room and further pantry and common room seating areas, the inn is very much the focal point of the town. Indeed the separate Sealy Suite offers a private function room ideal for weddings, celebrations, functions and events.
And just to add a bit of intrigue to your visit, the inn is reportedly haunted by several ghosts including an 18th Century highwayman who was shot dead when trying to rob the hotel and a ‘woman in black’, a lady in a black crinoline dress who walks the corridors!
