The Details

Set on a private estate featuring its own pool, the Dower House is a truly unique stay in Dorset.

Originally the gate house to Parnham Park - an iconic estate and home to one of the most historic Jacobean houses in Dorset - this 3-bedroom house sleeps six guests across three bedrooms.   

Nestled amongst its own acre of private grounds with full use of the private heated outdoor swimming pool.  Recently refurbished, the Dower House includes a children's playroom, private gated entrance & utility room.

The house receives fast wifi, Sky TV, and two smart TV's.  A beautiful dining room with period style furniture provides plenty of space to entertain guests for brunch, afternoon tea and supper.

The two king bedrooms both feature huge sumptuous beds, one four poster, and one ornate French style bed all adorned with quality cotton bedding.  The bathrooms are similarly indulgent with eye catching fixtures and a deep roll-top bath, overlooking the grounds. 

The main bedroom has a king-size bed and en-suite shower room, the second bedroom also has a king-size bed and the third bedroom can be made into two singles or one double.  On request the larger bedrooms can have an additional 'trundle' style bed to provide a further single bed.  The children's TV room on the ground floor can be used as a single bedroom with 'Z bed' on request.

During your stay, you can collect fresh eggs from the estate chickens and enjoy walks to local Beaminster and Netherbury via the numerous public footpaths criss-crossing the Parnham Estate, meandering their way to Beaminster and neighbouring villages beyond.


The Dower House is your chance to share in this historic home and is very much a slice of Dorset estate life.
