Welcome

Warmwell House is a Jacobean manor in the heart of Hardy’s Dorset. Perfect for weddings, receptions, family gatherings or private events, it is a unique historic venue full of hidden charm. Whether it’s cosying up in the Winter or enjoying the grounds in the Summer, Warmwell House is the perfect place to enjoy a special occasion in our wonderful county.

Meet your hostsSam & Serena

Sam and Serena moved to Warmwell House with their four children in 2014, when Sam was looking for a career change. He longed for more time at home, to restore the old manor that has been in the family since the 1940s and to start a business with Serena to make the most of the beautiful house.

Warmwell House is special for the family and it’s easy to see why. A lovely Jacobean building in a conservation village, it sits proudly at the end of a sweeping drive with far-reaching views across the hills towards the coast.

After three years of painstaking repairs and beautiful finishing touches, the house is now available as a venue for weddings and exclusive events whilst maintaining the charm of a much-loved family home.

The Estate & Jurassic Coast

The historic Warmwell Estate encompasses over 1000 acres of mixed livestock farm, ancient woodland and the conservation village – several characterful properties and a 13th century church. We are also privileged to have some rare SSSI heathland with Exmoor ponies and Shetland cattle, and will often be treated to glimpses of deer, hares, and plenty of interesting birds.

There is additional accommodation on the estate should you need it. The estate’s gatehouse – White’s cottage – and for the more adventurous, two luxurious shepherds’ huts.

We encourage guests to make the most of the estate; taking in the breath-taking views, exploring the grounds, walking the scenic footpaths and losing yourself – quite literally! – in the Warmwell garden maze.

Further afield (just a few miles) is the World Heritage Jurassic Coast with its spectacular cliffs and beaches. The coastline, which is perfect for a swim or a picnic, is part of the protected Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
