Set in the picturesque West Dorset village of Evershot, this lovely old stone-built Inn boasts worthy history. Originally known as The Kings Arms, it once brewed its own ales with water drawn from the source of the River Frome.

Welcome to this quality 16th Century coaching inn that Thomas Hardy called 'The Sow & Acorn' in 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles'.

All the original charm and character of 400 years exudes from the beamed bars and log fires that greet guests on arrival. Nestling among the rolling hills in an area of outstanding beauty and close to the British Heritage Coastline, you have the perfect base for exploring or walking.

The ten en suite bedrooms are individually decorated and have their own style and character, each taking a name from Hardy's "Tess of the d'Urbervilles". Well behaved dogs are very welcome!

Only the best fresh local ingredients are used to produce excellent meals, in either of the bars or the restaurant. The two oak-panelled bars offer real ales, as well as a comprehensive wine list.

Managers Alex Armstrong-Wilson and Jack Mackenzie look forward to welcoming you to the Acorn Inn soon!
