Wrackleford House

Home to arguably, one of the UK’s finest fishing and shooting estates…

Nestled beside the mature end of the river Frome, the most western of the famous English chalk streams resides the Wrackleford Estate, home to the Pope family for the past six generations. The estate has more recently built a fine reputation for quality game shooting, thanks to its most spectacular of settings. 

Everything here is gloriously and quintessentially English, from the classical antique furnishings and paintings inside the Georgian B&B to the sweeping lawns which lead down to the River Wrackle, beyond which are meadows and a waterfall. The B&B accommodation features guest rooms that are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are complete with marble bath and basin surrounds and feel, quite simply, luxuriously decadent.

A welcoming tea is enjoyed in the plant-filled conservatory, on sunny days there is a perfect outside location for a lazy breakfast. Breakfast is an excellent array of local Dorset produce and Katie will pack you a sumptuous picnic lunch or offer to cook a barbecue on the river banks if you’re fishing.

The more active of you might enjoy taking advantage of the many bicycles that are available on request. Dinner can be enjoyed at any of the excellent local restaurants.

Your B&B Hosts

Wrackleford is Oliver Pope's family home.  Prior to moving here with Katie and their young family in 2006, Oliver spent time in the army.  A keen interest in the countryside makes both he and Katie natural guardians of this wonderful estate and they enthusiastically and warmly welcome their B&B guests to enjoy.


Wrackleford can be found in Dorchester and aside from the estate fishing and shooting, this area of Dorset has much to offer visitors. The Thomas Hardy and Tutankhamun museums, Maiden Castle, Cerne Abbas Giant, Corfe and Sherborne Castles, Longleat and the wild Jurassic coast are all within easy reach.
