Stunningly beautiful, lovingly furnished, luxuriously designed and one of the coolest holiday houses on the Jurassic Coast, Mangerton House is a place destined to create happy memories of holidays and celebrations with special friends and family that will last forever.
It is a unique house in its combination of character, design credentials and hugely warm welcome. This early 19th Century house has been injected with lively and exciting design from the new, reclaimed and specially commissioned furniture to the bespoke wallpaper and lighting.
There are playful touches like the tipi for camping in the grounds and the natural swimming pond, tranquil hillside views and exquisite features such as the remarkable indoor pool.
Add the uniquely positioned beach hut on Chesil beach available to Mangerton House guests and you have arrived at British holiday perfection.
There is a wonderful indoor swimming pool (10m x 5m) with views out across the gorgeous countryside and a gym with cardio and multi gym facilities.
The natural swimming pond is perfect for an afternoon dip or explore all the critters making the river bed their home. Swimming in drinking water, surrounded by nature ,is a real pleasure.
Potter down to your private river bank, pack you rods or just keep a keen eye out for otters and trout as they swim by.
The house is set in 14 acres of wonderful gardens and grounds with the River Mangerton meandering through. On the lawn below the terrace we can set up croquet or badminton.
The newly created walkways are perfect for exploring the grounds. The camping facilities down by the river are a child’s dream come true and the kitchen garden is full of delicious produce.
While the children enjoy the swings you can soak up the wonderful atmosphere and views.
Within the main house there is a large kitchen/dining room, a back kitchen, spacious front and rear halls, a very large sitting room and a smaller living room with a TV. Everyone can dine together in the large dining space and there is lots of space to spread out in. Mangerton House is chic, functional and relaxing.
A Sonos music system is integrated throughout the communal areas.
The Barn houses conference facilities as well as a 3D plasma television. The house has three separate sky hd boxes.
We want you to enjoy every moment of your stay at Mangerton House so whatever your desire for food and drink, we can help. If you love cooking then help yourselves to the well equipped kitchen.

Or sample fine cuisine at a local gastro-pub or restaurant.

Memories are made of a heated indoor pool, dipping pond, home cinema and acres of hide-and-seek garden. Over the bridge to the island is children’s paradise with tipi, swings and kayaks. When you can tear yourself away just head down the road to the beach.
The heated indoor swimming pool is great for children. This will keep them happy all year round. And on a hot day everyone can take a plunge in the dipping pond. With bags of dvds and games, their own spaces outside and acres of gardens to explore, children are in heaven here!
