Huish Manor

Classically charming and extremely welcoming…

Many Wolsey Lodge houses are historically important and Huish Manor near Blandford Forum in Dorset is no exception. This very pretty, Grade II listed house, built in 1792, is approached along an attractive tree lined drive and is fronted by a large lawn with a pretty walled garden at the back and an adjoining small wood, orchard, and paddocks.


The house has attractive well-proportioned rooms as befits a home of this period. The drawing room and dining room are available for bed and breakfast guests' use and are furnished with antiques and a fine collection of marine paintings. The dining room is particularly elegant with a log fire, lit when appropriate, at both dinner and breakfast.

The guest bedrooms are large, with antique furniture and beds made up with linen sheets and warm blankets. Each has its own bathroom, one with a power shower, and enjoy calming views either onto the front lawn, or the walled garden at the back.

Your B&B Hosts

John and Fleur Hoare are your hosts at the luxury Huish Manor. John worked in the City of London until retiring and is a keen sailor. Fleur trained as a dancer and, until recently, taught children ballet. Fleur is an excellent cook and they both greatly enjoy entertaining their guests in the surroundings of their attractive 18th Century House - the perfect luxury B&B in a delightful part of Dorset.


Huish Manor is in Winterborne Zelston, close to Blandford Forum and is ideally situated for visiting all of Dorset and neighbouring Devon. Wolsey Lodge guests will enjoy visiting Hardy Country including Dorchester, Blandford Forum, Wimborne, Studland Bay, and Poole. There are several interesting museums, beautiful houses such as Kingston Lacy and castles at Corfe and Lulworth. For those who enjoy walking, there is the lovely Dorset coastline, recently declared a World Heritage Site. Other attractions include the famous Dorset Steam Fair in August.
