Vetted by our experts

Always fantasized about being Lord or Lady of the Manor? Well, now you can be, sort of. This historic stable building (dating back to 1900) is part of a family estate located in the Dorset village of Hinton St Mary. Along with the estate’s gatehouse (also available on Plum Guide), it's been recently refurbished and is accessible to outsiders for the first time.

About Dorset

If you want to immerse yourself in the England of yesteryear, a trip to the county of Dorset is a good place to start. The author Thomas Hardy seemed to concur – he drew heavily on his experience growing up around these parts to create the fictionalised rural idyll of Wessex that was the setting for many of his books.
