The Old RectoryBrochure Page. 37A
Many Wolsey Lodges have fascinating histories dating back many hundreds of years and The Old Rectory in Pimperne, Dorset, is no exception. Rebuilt in 1704 following a fire, the original house was a hunting lodge owned by Henry VIII and home to Catherine Parr. Original Tudor features are apparent and blend with the new to create a beautiful family home that now offers luxury bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation with a welcoming atmosphere set amidst lovingly restored gardens.
A wide hallway leads into the drawing room where B&B guests can relax with a good book or take a turn on the baby grand piano before perhaps exploring the three acres of garden with their manicured lawns, ha-ha, abundantly flowering beds, shady trees and a tennis court for the more energetic.
The B&B guest accommodation at The Old Rectory features two bedrooms, a double with en suite bathroom and a twin on the second floor with a private bathroom. Both are beautifully decorated as Miranda was an interior designer before moving to Dorset and has brought all her skill to bear to ensure her B&B guests' complete comfort. She is also a Cordon Bleu chef preparing delicious breakfasts and, when requested, will serve a dinner that will delight you.
Your B&B Hosts
Hugh and Miranda Sutton moved to Pimperne in this lovely part of Dorset from London and the worlds of publishing and interior design. The welcoming, peaceful, luxury B&B retreat they have created reflects their personal taste in fine furnishings and art and together they work hard to ensure that their guests have a memorable stay.
The Old Rectory is in the heart of the village of Pimperne in Dorset and is located close to the preserved Georgian splendour of Blandford Forum and within reach of Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. Close by is the thatched village of Milton Abbas whilst slightly further afield are the Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum and the famous and stunning Jurassic coastline. It is also well placed for a visit to Kingston Lacy, the National Trust house at Wimborne Minster. There is so much to see and do in Dorset you will be spoilt for choice, so why not enjoy the delights of The Old Rectory and come again?
