Middle Chine Manor in Dorset is a huge house that pulls people together. From the sweeping drive to the garden pavilion, Middle Chine Manor offers no ordinary experience.
Set in a private oasis, it’s packed with period charm and modern goodies. This is the world of stone windows, parquet floors and squishy sofas. Enjoy a great film in the home cinema, savour a banquet breakfast in the big kitchen and serve up a spread for 30 in the dining room.
Sleeping 20-30 guests in 12 lovely bedrooms, this is a house perfect for surfers, sunbathers and saunterers all.
Step into Middle Chine Manor’s huge wood-panelled hall, with parquet floors and a grand wooden staircase taking you to the first floor bedrooms. The large lounge, with big stone windows overlooking the garden, squishy sofas and an open fire, with a giant stone fireplace is perfect for gathering together. Spill out from the snug with its original wood panelling, squishy sofas into the garden. Parquet floors run through both lounges.
Perfect for the big meal, the dining room is a large, impressive room, with a big stone bay window overlooking the garden, and a huge oak table with space for up to 30 to dine together. The kitchen is fully equipped for big groups – a great place to start the day, cook and chat, or serve up the children’s tea.
At the top of the house on the second floor is the massive home cinema room. A big, open space under the eaves, with white walls and exposed beams, this runs across the full width of the house. And there is a second kitchen/bar area with American fridge freezer and tons of soft sofas where everyone can chill out and enjoy a good movie.
The games room – a big open space with table tennis table, pool and table football is perfect for the kids (and grown ups!) to let off steam.
