About Cranborne Estate
This Grade II* listed mansion might boast an imposing Palladian façade, but inside you’ll find the most inviting spaces in which to stay and play.
As you enter the house from the private driveway, keep an eye out for the hints of period exoticism and eccentricity that give the Cranborne Estate character. The gallery-curated art dressing the walls is eclectic and includes works by Banksy and Damien Hirst. Botanical prints, potted plants and an earthy palette bring a little of the outdoors into the social spaces here, aided by large sash windows that let the sunshine pour in.
In fact, you may be tempted to spend much of your time outside. The grand terrace and formal gardens make idyllic venues for alfresco dinner parties, scenic sundowners and guided yoga sessions.
You can book the entirety of this nine-hectare estate for yourself – perfect for a big celebration or a family escape to the country (bring the dog along, too). There are 11 individually designed bedrooms to accommodate you, all en-suite, elegantly furnished and with beds ranging from double to super-king size. You’re also well catered for, courtesy of the in-house restaurant and bar.
Tucked away in the village of Cranborne, this five-star property places you in comfortable reach of regional attractions including Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast.
