Smedmore House is an elegant Georgian mansion on the Dorset coast, set on a private estate bordering the sea. It is perfect for large family celebrations, or special times with friends.

There are eight bedrooms in the main house, two of which are en-suite, whilst the remaining six share a variety of bath and shower rooms.

In addition, the Garden Wing may be available upon request for a further six people in three bedrooms (subject to charge).

Downstairs, you’ll find a drawing room, dining room and games room (rather charmingly known as the ‘Cedar Room’), and a large, modern kitchen.

Outside is just as lovely as inside, with romantic walled gardens, generous flower-filled beds and beautiful sea views. Guinea-fowl are often found perusing the front lawn.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“An outstanding aspect to Smedmore has to be its atmosphere of timelessness.

House Facts

Smedmore was originally built in 1610, and its distinctive Georgian bays added in 1762. Dutch furniture can be found throughout the house - inherited from the last English descendant of a general of William III, Godart van Ginkel, Earl of Athlone. The house was originally owned by the Clavell family, and the current family are direct descendants - they're Mansel by marriage.
