A glorious country house built 200 years ago of stone from the Purbeck Hills, situated within its own beautiful, formal gardens

A warm welcome awaits you at Christmas

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.

Quote Mark Mary Ellen Chase

Christmas Eve

A warm welcome awaits you on Christmas Eve. Spend the afternoon unwinding in the lounge in front of the fire with a good book and a glass of something to take away the winter chill. Dinner in the evening is served in the restaurant overlooking the beautiful floodlit gardens. You might like to enjoy the splendid candle-lit Midnight Mass at nearby Sherborne Abbey; a night cap will await you on your return home in the early hours.

Christmas Day

After a restful night's sleep, awake on Christmas morning feeling refreshed and ready for a tempting Grange breakfast. Once the presents are open, why not take a stroll around the pretty village of Oborne before you enjoy a traditional seven-course Christmas lunch with all the trimmings. Later, sink into a comfortable sofa for coffee, mince pies and a board game. If this sounds too energetic how about a little snooze in front of the fire? A buffet supper will be served in the evening, the perfect way to round off a wonderfully festive day.

Boxing Day

On Boxing Day, more eating is the order of the day! Breakfast, followed by a three course traditional luncheon, with a candle lit buffet supper in the evening.feel up to venturing out, how about a trip to nearby Montacute House & Gardens or a visit to Cerne Abbas to see the ‘Rude Man’ chalk carving or the Wessex Morris Men’s Christmas Party. Not energetic enough? You could take a trip to the coast for the West Bay Wallow, an annual fancy-dress swim around the marina at West Bay!
