Nestled amidst the picturesque Dorset countryside, my recent stay at Plumber Manor was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment I arrived, I was transported to a world of timeless elegance and charm.

Plumber Manor exudes a sense of history and sophistication that is truly captivating. From the welcoming smiles at check-in to the personalized service throughout my stay, every detail was meticulously attended to.

Dining at Plumber Manor is an experience to savour. The culinary team crafted exquisite dishes that showcased the finest local ingredients. The wine selection was equally impressive, adding to the overall gastronomic excellence.

In summary, my stay at Plumber Manor was a sublime escape into a world of refined elegance and tranquillity. It’s a place where the past meets the present in perfect harmony, making it an absolute must-visit for anyone seeking a regal retreat in the heart of Dorset. I cannot wait to return to this hidden gem and create more cherished memories.


We would like to thank the entire Team at Plumber Manor for all their hard work to make our Ruby Wedding celebration dinner last weekend such a wonderful and memorable occasion.  Our very special thanks go to Wendy for her assistance with the planning and the set up – the table looked beautiful! – and to MJ and Jane for all their hard work on the night.  The service was absolutely impeccable!

Living locally and being regular visitors to Plumber Manor over the years we have always enjoyed consistently great food there and the catering for a large group of sixteen last weekend was no exception.  The chef is outstanding and all our guests remarked on the exceptionally high quality of the meal.

Several of our guests took advantage of the hotel’s accommodation and were full of praise for the standard of the rooms and for the warmth and helpfulness of the staff.

Our entire evening was a tremendous success – it could not have gone better – and we very much felt that we and all of our guests were being looked after more as a family friend than a client.

Thank you very much indeed Plumber Manor!!

Once again I thank you all for making the day a delightful and totally enjoyable event. All the guests were unanimous in their praise of the food, service and super surroundings. I look forward to seeing you again.


A note of very grateful thanks and appreciation to you and all your staff at Plumber Manor for giving us such a wonderful weekend. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the food and service and the Manor looked idyllic in the peace of autumn weather.

Last September my wife and I, together with our children, had the pleasure of being guests at your wonderful establishment for five delightful days. I do want you to know how comfortable we were and how much we appreciated your hospitality. And the dining! Your kitchen staff must be consummate artists. I’m still talking about the mussels dish you served.

Were I a commentator on hotels, inns and dining establishments, I would award you stars off the page. But alas, the best I can offer you are my thanks. You are most gracious hosts.

I am writing to you personally because Patricia and I were so delighted at the way you and your staff handled everything, to achieve a success for the party which was everything we could have hoped for. The drinks beforehand were just right, helped by your lovely garden and the glorious weather, and the meal and wines were really delicious in every way. We have received so many tributes from our guests, who particularly commented on the excellent and unobtrusive service given by your staff.

Just had to put pen to paper to thank you for looking after us so well during our all too brief stay at Plumber, the peace, the birdsong in the morning, the wonderfully convivial atmosphere – everything just as we remembered it. I can honestly say having traipsed around the world and been lucky enough to stay in some of the finest hotels there is nowhere to match Plumber!

A happy guest

We have just returned from our wonderful anniversary weekend at Plumber Manor. Everything was perfect and so many of our guests praised the location, the food and the service from the staff. Truly an event we shall remember for a long while to come.

Very many thanks to all who contributed to making it such a special weekend.

Dear all at Plumber Manor,

We just wanted to say a big thank you for the large family celebratory meal we had with you on the evening of Sunday 3rd June. The private dining room was lovely and it was helpful to be able to decorate it beforehand.
The whole staff were extremely friendly, courteous and professional and the level of service was impressive. All of our guests commented on the terrific quality of the food, and really enjoyed their meal. We had guests from eight years of age to eighty eight and you managed to please them all! The dishes came out together and were beautifully presented as well as being delicious.
We really enjoyed the excellent cooking of first class ingredients without the silly notions that some restaurants favour currently.
We had a wonderful evening and really appreciated the warmth of welcome. Your hotel is beautiful and many guests took away brochures, with a view to returning!

Many thanks once again.
