Available to let in Dorset
July 18, 2022 Marishelle Gibson

Approached via a sweeping drive leading to a medieval gatehouse and courtyard, this handsome manor house and grounds date to the thirteenth century.

The magnificant main hall has retained its medieval character and the parlour wing, to the west of the hall, is lined with eighteenth century panelling and includes a fire surround dating to the same era.

Upstairs, the bedrooms and bathrooms are also rich with original features including panelling which ranges from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries.

The space, grandeur and elegance afforded by the character and configuration of the internal and external spaces lends itself to entertaining. The property is divided into two wings allowing for separate guest or staff accommodation in the west wing above the kitchen and gatehouse, which was once used as a service wing.

The central heating and alarm systems have been recently updated and modernised and there is scope for some updates to the kitchen and bathrooms if required.

The stunning grounds are immaculately maintained and include a courtyard with large terraced areas, lawns, an extensive kitchen garden and a tennis court. There is plenty of external storage in the various outbuildings/stable block.

The central heating and alarm systems have been recently updated and modernised and there is scope for some updates to the kitchen and bathrooms if required.
