Wow! Anyone For Badders On The Lawn?

Don’t let the ‘rule of six’ deny you a sumptuous festive stay at the gorgeous – and extensive - Clarendon Manor in Dorset this Christmas, where hot tub splendour and Winter badminton on the lawn await!

And they’re keeping the prices down because of Covid challenges: £5,000 cheaper than last year.

Located in the quiet Dorset village of Puddletown, prepare to Lord it up at the Grade II listed 13th century property which boasts six reception rooms, nine bedrooms, a gym, a games rooms with table tennis and pool table, and nine acres of grounds.

The elegant dining room with open fireplace is the perfect place to enjoy a slap-up festive meal, while the main kitchen and separate caterer’s kitchen mean the cooks in the group have lots of room to create their fare.

A morning room, a study, a breakfast room, a drawing room and a snug offer copious options to catch a quiet moment alone or group together.
Outside, guests have nine acres of grounds to explore, with formal gardens, extensive lawns (including croquet lawn), grass badminton, a kitchen garden, paddock and woodlands to enjoy – plus a hot tub too.

For those who can tear themselves away, the Jurassic Coast is a short drive away, where Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are well worth a visit – ideal for a Boxing Day or New Year’s Day walk.

Price: 7 nights’ rental over Christmas costs £5,995 or £4,995 over New Year for a group of six with The Wow House Company : https://www.thewowhousecompany.com/property/clarendon-manor.aspx

Available 21 or 28 December 2020.
