If you’re not a lord or lady, now you can at least live like one. Kimmeridge Hall in Dorset is an oak-panelled dream of a country manor with drawing room to boot. Eighteenth-century plaster work and Furstenberg plates adorn the dining room; an air of grand opulence hangs in the air.
Age and character can be read in every beam, panel and 17th-century Dutch painting and ancestral portrait. Not that you’ll feel over-formal: the WiFi and satellite TV are far from ancient history and the modern kitchen comes with Mexican stone tiles.
Call up our chef for local game, meats and award-winning Dorset wine. Crack open the brandy (next to Brandy Bay) by the roaring fires and toast the sea views. Get the party started and get busy making memories.
Two acres of flower gardens, orchards, and a Mediterranean garden surround Kimmeridge Hall.
Explore the delicately landscaped walled gardens, and enjoy the lovely variety of colours and scents as you pick your favourite spot.
At the bottom of the main walled garden is a walk through woods and fields, past sphinxes, urns and obelisks, down to the beautiful Kimmeridge Bay.
The huge family sized rooms are full of character and charm, and are the perfect backdrop to create wonderful memories.
The Cedar Room has satellite TV, so you wont have to miss the big game. Wireless Broadband is provided throughout most of the house, so you can surf the web as much as you like.
The Drawing Room is a lovely wood panelled room with heaps of books for you to lose yourself in, and squishy sofas for the whole family to get together and enjoy a fun evening.
The huge Dining Room is light and airy, with great garden views. The dining table can comfortably seat 20 guests, so there is plenty of space for all your family and friends to enjoy a delicious evening meal together.
There is a modern kitchen paved with Mexican stone tiles , with a table seating eight to enjoy a family breakfast, two 4-ring hobs and two ovens, so cooking up a storm is most definitely an option.
