Smedmore House is one of Dorset’s finest Georgian manor houses.

Situated on the Jurassic coast, surrounded by extensive gardens and spectacular views of the sea and rolling hills, it is a very special place to relax and unwind. The charm of the house lies in its age and character. It’s a very mellow and comfortable country house, moulded by many generations of the same family.

There are panelled rooms, a beautiful staircase and an elegant drawing room with views to the sea. The dining room has 18th-century plaster work and is decorated with over 100 blue Furstenburg plates. The furniture and portraits have been handed down through the generations and all add to the friendly, warm atmosphere of this beautiful manor house.

The house is available for weekends, holidays, weddings and celebrations and is particularly suited to that special “big” birthday.
