History

Originally known as The Grange Farmhouse, the present building dates mainly to the mid-19th century, with some surviving window mullions from as early as the 17th. It is believed to have been the principal farmhouse in the surrounding area, operating right through to the 20th century, when it was converted to residential use; but by that time, the majority of the working farmland had been sold, with only a few acres remaining.

The property then passed hands to an Italian businessman in 1976, who opened The Grange Restaurant later that year. Gradually, news of the traditional Italian restaurant spread, and clientèle started arriving from all over - some even by helicopter - to enjoy Mauro Lupi's cuisine. Its potential realised, The Grange was converted into a small inn, which has subsequently blossomed into a larger hotel, now a popular venue for events.

Facilities

Showcasing two elegant reception rooms of contrasting dimensions and a restaurant, The Grange at Oborne can afford wedding parties of every size a perfect atmosphere.

Beautifully enhanced by the rich mahogany panelling lining the walls, the gentle yellow lighting generates a romantic, intimate atmosphere for a wedding party of 4-26 guests.

The Regent Room

    We just wanted to say a big thank you for making our wedding day (and the whole weekend) so special.

    Throughout the whole process right from the first meeting to after the event you put us at ease and filled us with confidence that in your hands we could relax and enjoy our day as everything would run smoothly.

    We have heard nothing but praise for you and all your staff. You managed to make everyone feel at home and have the most fantastic weekend.

    Thank you so much.
