Country House Luxury Hotel in Dorset

 A “Excellent-unbelievably good” (Guest Book) Dorset luxury hotel and one of the most characterful country house hotels in England. There's no pretence here and the hospitality is renowned. 

“Even better 25 years on” (Guest Book). You’re guests of one of the oldest families in Dorset, whose roots can be traced back to William the Conqueror, and they'll really look after you. There’s even a portrait of Charles I hanging in the Gallery, a portrait that the king personally presented to his mistress who was a member of this family.

“In all possible respects, a thoroughly agreeable stay in the peace and tranquility of Plumber with excellent company and excellent cuisine.” (Guest Book)

Plumber Manor, the archetypal Dorset country hotel, is a fine Jacobean country house, still owned, and now run as a luxury hotel, by the same family that built it in the early 1600s, located in the heart of Thomas Hardy's ‘vale of little dairies', one of the most beautiful parts of Dorset. Here, it’s so easy to create an interesting and absorbing holiday in Dorset.

"Wonderful stopover with the family on the way to Cornwall." (Guest Book)

This an hotel that’s so ‘far from the madding crowd', you could be excused for believing time is at a standstill and that Plumber Manor is the natural order of things.

Furthermore, Plumber is one of the most dog friendly hotels in Dorset. "Great food and gorgeous dog" (Guest Book)

If you're looking for a family hotel in Dorset, a hotel near Wincanton Racecourse, a hotel near Salisbury Racecourse, or for a hotel near Longleat, you need look no further. Plumber is also conveniently located for all the major independent schools in Dorset and Wiltshire.

The Dorset hotel accommodation comprises 16 lovely rooms and the hotel boasts one of the finest restaurants in Dorset, featured in the Good Food Guide every year for 38 years.

It’s easy to appreciate why this beautiful country hotel is the most idyllic exclusive use wedding receptions venue, especially when outside, there are the beautiful gardens that are pure therapy, whatever the time of year. 

“Guests come to Plumber for a b***** good time!” Richard Prideaux Brune.
