Grosvenor Hotel: A Timeless Blend of Heritage and Contemporary Elegance

Just a few miles from the Hildon Estate, in the heart of England's smallest town, Stockbridge, sits the exquisite Grosvenor Hotel. This charming early 19th-century Georgian hotel has undergone a stunning transformation under the stewardship of Simon and Teresa Henderson, and the special touch of Lottie Keith, perhaps Hampshire’s boldest and most talented country house interior designer.

A Modern Transformation with a Nod to Heritage

Stepping into the Grosvenor, you're immediately struck by its Georgian grandeur, then by its vibrant and funky colour palette, especially that standout raspberry and lime bar. It sounds unconventional, but trust me, it works perfectly, adding a playful note to the sophisticated ambience. The hotel hasn't lost touch with its roots; the themes of trout-fishing and horse-racing that define the local area are subtly woven into the decor. The well-tended garden terrace offers an inviting alfresco space, while indoors, the lively bar and wood-panelled plush lounge with large squishy sofas create an ideal setting for relaxation. You’re sure to find your perfect spot to hang out at the Grosvenor.

Luxurious Accommodations

Every room is a unique and individual blend of antique pieces, great colour combinations, and luxurious fabrics, with a special mention of some beautiful artworks.

The Grosvenor boasts 34 stunning bedrooms, each with its own unique character. The Main House features 18 exquisite rooms, while the Mews to the rear offers 13 additional rooms, plus the chic three-bedroom Tap Cottage nestled between the 15th-century St Peter’s Church and the hotel itself. Every room is a unique and individual blend of antique pieces, contemporary colour palettes, and luxurious fabrics, with a special mention of some beautiful artworks. Talking of which, check out The Wykeham Gallery in Stockbridge High Street. There are garden rooms, with tranquil outdoor spaces within the walled garden. A hayloft, decadently designed by Alex Lewis featuring a sitting room and a cook’s corner, perfect for a romantic getaway or a peaceful retreat. There are spacious family rooms and the Mayfly Suite complete with a charming four-poster bed. The Tap Cottage is a three-bedroom ensuite retreat with a cosy sitting room, bijou kitchen, and a postcard-sized garden. So whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, family holiday or friends' get-together, you’ll find the Grosvenor has the perfect rooms for your stay. Some rooms allow dogs, so you really can bring the whole family.  Rooms are all equipped with top-notch fittings and with Hampshire-roasted Mozzo Coffee, and of course, Hildon natural mineral water!

New Head Chef Oli Abbott, is serving up wonders from the kitchen. He  believes simplicity done well often wins the day. His standout dish from their new menus is the grilled mackerel with apple, beetroot and yoghurt. If he had a signature dish, this would be it. Oli likes to travel and is a keen forager, which often inspires his dishes. 


An Idyllic Escape

Stockbridge isn’t listed as one of The Times' best places to live for nothing; this Hampshire town is a delightful destination. Step out onto Stockbridge High Street, which is brimming with independent stores, delis, and galleries, providing excellent retail therapy. Beyond the High Street, there’s so much to enjoy; fly fishing, shooting, walking, local history and cycling. You can also simply relax in the tranquillity of the hotel's gardens or explore the stunning countryside in Hampshire. There is no excuse not to relax, with an onsite masseuse in the Treatment Shed, squishy sofas in the lounge and protected walled courtyard. 

The Grosvenor Hotel in Stockbridge is a masterclass in blending historical charm with contemporary style, creating a relaxed glamour to enjoy at your leisure. Whether you're seeking an adventurous escape or a serene retreat, the Grosvenor delivers an unforgettable stay in the heart of Hampshire. We love the attention to detail, whether in the interior decor, the courtyard planting, the menu,  and of course, Hildon water in the rooms!
