Dorset House

A family owned house now yours midweek

Dorset house is a family owned house and is now available for exclusive hire mid week (Mon - Friday)

Hidden away in the heart of the country

Deep in the heart of the countryside, is the gorgeous Dorset House. Boasting Georgian elegance, this grade II house has lavish green lawns and beautiful flower gardens. Built in 1730, the house is set in a quaint Dorset village . Unspoiled by modern architecture and living, you will feel as if you are taking a step back into history as you pass through the rolling hills and surrounding countryside. The house is said to be one of the largest rectories in England and sits at the foot of the Colmers Hill. 

Perfect for large groups

The decor of the house is a mix of period decor mixed with the look of a traditional country house. Get a glimpse into what country living would have been like. Dorset house still has most of its original features including large open fireplaces perfect for keeping warm during the cold winter months, flagstone floors, oak floorboards and a beautiful spiral staircase that ascends through three floors. 

The ideal getaway

With its spacious 11 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 4 large reception rooms, the house can sleep up to 28 guests, making it perfect for a corporate retreat or holiday home for large families. Dorset House is the ideal environment for any company event, to celebrate, work or get creative. Everything can be tailor-made for your requirements and you wouldn’t be bothered by other guests. With our large conference room, there is plenty of space to get your work done and then sit back and relax in the evening in the games room, or drawing room with its 50-inch screen. Or kickback on the veranda and take in the view.
