Our charming 16th-century coaching inn transports you to the pages of a Thomas Hardy novel. Featured in Tess of the d’Urbervilles, our atmospheric inn boasts old beams, oak panelling, roaring fires and an original skittle alley. The beautiful rural setting in the heart of the Dorset countryside is complemented by our warm, attentive service and fine local cuisine..
We are delighted that our doors are open once more, and the Acorn team are looking forward to welcoming our guests back.
We also offer a vegan afternoon tea, with a multitude of vegetarian and plant-based options available at our bar and 24-hour breakfast menu. Milly, our resident Jack Russell, is one of the hotel family and is on hand to provide calming company. We are delighted to welcome your four-legged friends too and you can treat them to a doggy afternoon tea, with chicken and beef meatloaf, homemade doggy biscuit, and doggylicious ice cream.
We're excited to announce our latest partnership with BoxCentric, who specialise in Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. Open to all abilities, Boxcentric is located moments away from The Egerton and offers daily, weekly and weekend passes as well as Personal Training sessions.
Relax in one of our individually designed rooms, where we’re happy to arrange spa and beauty treatments for you, if you so desire. Or take advantage of free access to the V&A, and spend a happy few quiet hours experiencing the world’s leading art and design museum.
While staying at our enchanting Knightsbridge townhouse, guests can enjoy access to the nearby Aquilla health and fitness spa and health club, with use of its swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, exercise studio and gym included. Runners will enjoy exploring the miles of walking and jogging tracks in Hyde Park on the hotel’s doorstep.
