A Beautiful Gerogian Coaching Inn
Central Blandford - 20 Hrs per week
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 splendor. 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. The separate Sealy Suite offers a private function room ideal for weddings, celebrations, functions and events making the place buzz all year around. We are building for the season now and have a vacancy for an experienced housekeeper to take great care of our guest rooms and facilities.

The Crown Hotel
A historic Dorset Georgian coaching inn
Steeped in history (it was one of 21 stops for fresh horses on the Trafalgar Way - the route that carried news of the Battle of Trafalgar from Falmouth to London), the Crown is a wonderful example of a charming Dorset coaching inn.
It boasts 27 lovely bedrooms, beautiful terraces and gardens, as well as a historic dining room, relaxed pantry and a sumptuous oak-panelled common room - not to mention the best bar in Dorset! The Crown caters for all occasions, particularly the separate Sealy Suite (with its own walled garden), which offers a private function room, ideal for conferences, weddings and events.
