Athelhampton House & Gardens
Attraction in Dorset
Welcome to Athelhampton House and Gardens, a spectacular 15th century manor house and grounds 5 miles east of the Dorset town of Dorchester. Athelhampton provides an excellent historical experience, and with an on-site shop and restaurants, an excellent day out for all ages. Built in 1485, the Great Hall is at the heart of Athelhampton House, and is a fine example of Tudor Architecture. The Great Court, with its striking Pyramid shaped yew trees is our most famous of gardens. The West-Wing displays many pieces of her work from the Athelhampton and the Phillips Family Collections. The Coach House was refurbished in the 1995 with the courtyard enclosed and turned into a tranquil dining area. We offer private use of Athelhampton House and all its facilities on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year.
