Relaxing Holiday!

We had a lovely, relaxing holiday at Poxwell Manor. The owners, Sarah and Ken, were discreet, welcoming, and very helpful. The west wing of this historic property is ideally situated for exploring the Jurassic Coastline.

Awestruck by Poxwell Manor West Wing!

What a find! 5 Stars? No! 10 Stars and ALL Gold would be more fitting for this exquisite, charming and unique holiday rental. On arrival, we were awestruck by Poxwell Manor West Wing, attached to the manor itself, standing majestically before us. Excitedly we opened the front door and started to investigate. The whole house was spotlessly clean and a generous Welcome Pack awaited us in the kitchen. Deceptive at first, the spaciousness of this lovely home soon became apparent. All 3 bedrooms were large, well appointed and full of light. The beds were superbly comfortable affording all 6 of us very restful nights. So important! "Far From The Madding Crowd" the Manor, set in over 10 acres of beautiful gardens giving peace and quiet and tranquility but still within easy reach of many interesting things to do and places to visit. Many thanks to our hosts Ken and Sarah for their warm welcome and readiness to help and advise us as needed. This home is very special. We can't wait to return.

Beautiful Base

A beautiful base for our trip to Dorset. Being in the grounds of the Manor House, and the size and comfort of the rooms was wonderful. Thank you!

Beautiful Home

Beautiful home; it was a special place to stay and the furnishings were lovely. We were made to feel very welcome. Our kids really enjoyed the trampoline and also fresh eggs from the hens! Travel cot and high chair provided were great, thank you. Just to note for families with toddlers that there are a few steps into the kitchen (although you can close it off with the door). We had a cold snap and it was very cosy in the evenings with the fire on. Brilliant location, within easy reach of beaches, museums etc. Lots to do in dry or wet weather. We booked a fossil hunting tour from the museum in Lyme Regis and would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We had a wonderful few days at Poxwell Manor

The West Wing is set in beautiful grounds in a peaceful location. The accommodation has been finished to a very high standard and you will not be disappointed. It is luxurious and homely
- we absolutely loved it here and will definitely return.
Our hosts were very hospitable and friendly making us feel very welcome.
Only a few miles from Lulworth Cove, Weymouth and Ringstead - there is so much in the area to explore.

What a fantastic find!

The home was beautiful throughout. The host Sarah was just lovely, incredibly helpful and very friendly. We had two young children and even with bad weather we had plenty to do both on the grounds and venturing out to local attractions. We would absolutely go back again and highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Dorset.
