Doset Country House

This is a quintessentially English Country House Hotel, in an idyllic setting on the edge of a pretty village in the heart of Dorset. The House has a relaxed, calm and luxurious feel, but also offers exceptional levels of old-fashioned service with attention to every detail.  The decor is immaculate and the reception rooms include a wood-panelled Boardroom which doubles as a stunning candle-lit private dining room, a beautiful and elegant Drawing Room as well as a cosy Bar.

The hotel is renowned for its fine food, including one of the best cheese boards in Dorset, which is complemented by an excellent wine cellar, overseen by an award-winning Sommelier. This is an ideal venue for a party where guests have a particular interest in food and wine. Menus for an exclusive use event will be tailor-made in discussion with the chef, as well as considering which of the superb selection of fine wines to serve with dinner.

The bedrooms are all individually designed and beautifully furnished, with an emphasis on country house style.  They include several two-storied cottages in the grounds for those looking for a little more privacy or space.  The small spa offers an oasis of calm and tranquillity, with an indoor pool and a list of pampering treatments.

The House is set in four acres of glorious gardens, featuring a fountain and water garden with decking area for a picturesque setting for afternoon tea.  The country house atmosphere is further enhanced with a croquet lawn, statues in woodland glades, and hammocks slung between trees, providing a completely relaxing retreat for your exclusive use event.

The property can also offer a wide range of sporting activities nearby from shoots to sailing, as well as less active pursuits such as chocolate making.

We like:

  • wine tasting with the sommelier
  • the best cheese board in the county
  • relaxing in a hammock in the sunshine
