Meet the owner

Steven

Many years ago living overseas, I came across a picture of Hammoon Manor (I believe in the Times). I thought what I wouldn’t give to live in such a picturesque house in such idyllic surroundings never thinking for a moment that I could be so blessed. Yet here we are - a story in itself! Having completely restored the house and converted the barns to luxury holiday cottages, we are truly blessed to live in such peaceful and idyllic surroundings in Thomas Hardy's Dorset with all its history and beauty. It always gives us such pleasure to see out guests enjoying Hammoon and all that Dorset and the surrounding area has to offer. There is so much to experience and see, from the world heritage sites of Stonehenge and the Jurassic Coast, to Longleat, Sherborne Abbey and Castle, Shaftesbury, Dorchester, Salisbury Cathedral, Bath and so much more are all within easy reach. Alternatively, you can just enjoy our walks, and relax in the gardens and do nothing!
