About Chaffeymoor Grange

Chaffeymoor Grange is a beautiful stone manor house set in five acres of glorious Dorset countryside. The house datesfrom the 17th century, and retains beautiful original features such as stone mullioned windows, huge fireplaces and exposed beams.

2021 update: Chaffeymoor Grange has been sold to new owners and is therefore no longer available to rent. It's a super house and will make someone very happy, but after 12 years it's time to remove it from Landed Houses.

The houseis the ideal venue for house parties, weddings and joint family holidays. The house also offers a perfect country location for business meetings, training and team building events.

Chaffeymoor sleeps 20 people comfortably in 10 bedrooms in the main house. The reception rooms include a generous kitchen, drawing room, dining room and den. Should you feel the urge, there is a piano tuned and waiting in the hall.

A further four people can sleep in the newly built coach house, which comprises a large double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and large living room with double sofa bed.

Outside is just as lovely, with 5 acres of gardens and terraces – ideal for a marquee. There is also a private lake, complete with little island and a dinky row-boat to bob around in and enjoy the sunshine. Should you wish for something a bit more energetic, there is also a football pitch, croquet lawn and tennis court.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Chaffeymoor really is very well appointed, but my favourite part of the house is the south-facing terrace, with its formal water-garden and the views over the valley. The most perfect spot for drinking very cold gin and tonics and admiring all that’s special about the English countryside.”

About The Location

Chaffeymoor can be reached by mainline trains to both Gillingham and Castle Clary, both about ten minutes’ drive from the house. Should you wish to reach Chaffeymoor by car, the house is just off the A303.

Chaffeymoor is a great choice for a smart country wedding. The house is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 80 guests (there are plenty of local B&B’s in which your guests can stay). There are two rooms in which the ceremony can take place – the drawing room (seating up to 80), or the dining room (seating up to 40). A marquee can be used for a seated wedding breakfast for 80, or the house can cope with 60 guests dining in a more informal manner (without the need for a marquee).

Wonderful place! We stayed here for my birthday weekend and it was perfect! All ages (from 2 to 70ish) loved it! The bedrooms are beautiful and it was ideal to have so many en-suite. The downstairs spaces meant that, despite being a large group and drizzly weather, everyone had space to join in games, chill out, chat, run around(!), whatever took their fancy!! Best of all was the dining table big enough for us all to sit around- pure joy! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful space x

Had the most wonderful w/e with family and friends - to cushion the shock of my 70th! The charming owners couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming, both before and during our stay (thank you xx). The beautiful house, accommodation, grounds and excellent facilities were perfect for us - of all ages, and lovely local attractions were good for those who wanted to explore the area during their stay. It was a great venue to host a formal dinner (l highly recommend the caterers I used one night), and for our own catering. (It must be lovely to eat al fresco in warmer months - and using the BBQ.) On our last night we played a Murder Mystery for 21 characters - hilarious! The house lent itself so well to the intigue ! Best birthday ever !!
