Plumber Manor

About

This imposing Jacobean manor house is set in idyllic countryside "far from the madding crowd". The Divelish stream weaves its way through delightful grounds, extensive lawns and fine old trees. Dating from the 17th century, the manor has been the home of the Prideaux-Brune family.

Since 1973 the careful management of Richard, Alison and Brian (in the kitchen) has led to the creation of a first class hotel and restaurant. Richard knows many of his regular diners personally and is always on hand for advice, both about current dishes on the ever changing menu and about what to see in this charming part of Dorset. When we dined there recently we had the excellent seafood trio to start with, followed by some very tasty venison. Remember to leave room for one of the famous Plumber puddings, which come round on a trolley ! The wine list is of the same standard, well-chosen and with ever changing freshness. There are six elegant bedrooms within the main house and a further ten in the courtyard and converted barn.

Plumber is welcoming, comfortable and has a charming atmosphere in which to relax and savour first class hospitality, cuisine and service.

Plumber Manor is a quintessential English country house hotel, well located for visiting Sherborne, Shaftesbury, Blandford Forum, Dorchester, Beaminster, Cerne Abbas Lulworth, Studland and the Jurassic Coast.
