Manor Barn

Gold winning B&B, at the foot of Hambledon Hill…

 Fashioned out of old red brick and stone this award winning Wolsey Lodge is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making for a serene and tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind. Cari, your hostess is extremely welcoming and will have tea and cake waiting for you when you arrive.

Your accommodation is located in the beautifully converted barn, which has a self-contained layout, making it the perfect place to relax with friends or family in utter privacy.

The entrance leads into a sitting room alongside a breakfast area, a small kitchen and two very stylish ground floor, oak beamed bedrooms each with a stunning en suite bathroom. These rooms are ideal for less able guests and Cari excels at making sure their needs are met. 

The breakfast menu is varied, adaptable to suit special diets and makes use of local organic produce and ingredients - the perfect start to a day of exploration and adventure! 

Your first port of call should be Hambledon Hill, at the top of which you will find amazing views encompassing five counties, before exploring Dorset like a local thanks to Cari’s extensive knowledge and recommendations.

Your B&B Hosts

Cari and Peter are lovely and charming hosts who welcome their guests as if they are old friends.  Peter works in nearby Sherborne whilst Cari looks after the house, their two sons, and the family’s dogs. They both love hosting guests, and thoroughly enjoy sharing all their hidden gems and favourite haunts with their guests.


Dorset is a wonderful county, boasting glorious coastline, beautiful countryside, pretty villages and market towns and some of the most archaeologically important sites in the country along the Jurassic coast.  Sherborne with its castle and Abbey is close by, there are magnificent houses and gardens at Kingston Lacy.  Athelhampton House, Longleat and Stourhead are all within easy reach.
