About The Old Manor

The Old Manor can sleep large parties of up to twenty one (plus an additional two on a sofa bed) and is an elegant manor house in Dorset.

Sitting in two acres of grounds, this is an ideal retreat for friends and families who want to get away and spend time together or celebrate a special occasion. With nine bedrooms, carriage driveway, large terrace for alfresco dining, tennis court and hot tub, there are plenty of facilities to cater for all.

Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, The Old Manor is just a fifteen minute drive from Studland on the Dorset coast with its expansive golden beach. The area offers plenty to see and do including the Jurassic Heritage coastline, Farmer Palmer's Farm Park near Poole for the little ones, country inns for leisurely lunches, historic houses and gardens and good shopping opportunities at Bournemouth, Poole and Dorchester. Iconic Stonehenge is also within easy reach (just over half an hour by car) and the Roman City of Bath is an hour and a half away by car offering a host of attractions, historic features and more great shopping!
