Today, Plumber Manor is still owned by the Prideaux-Brunes and is widely regarded to be one of the most exceptional choices for accommodation in Dorset.

Guests will be welcomed by the family Labradors who serve as the unofficial members of our friendly team. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you’ll be made to feel right at home.
