Plumber Manor Country House Hotel and Restaurant

Hazelbury Bryan Road, Sturminster Newton, Dorset, DT10 2AF
Thought to have been built in 1665 from local stone, this house, still owned by the same family, is surrounded by lawns shaded by fine old trees. It’s a marvellous place to stay, if wishing to tour Hardy country (Sturminster Newton was Stourcastle, in Thomas Hardy’s Wessex).

As well as a destination restaurant (see below) there are comfortable bedrooms which are divided by those in the main house (six) and those either gathered around a courtyard or grouped around a converted stone barn. The latter, in a modern style, are particularly spacious, and have window seats overlooking a stream and the garden. All have modern TV’s, tea and coffee making facilities and en suite bathrooms.

To relax, you can play croquet or tennis (lessons can be arranged), and even bring your horse by arrangement., as stabling can be provided.

There are good meeting rooms for business users.

Nearby: Hardy Country. Riding. Walking.
