Hilfield Manor's location provides the perfect combination of an idyllic setting with outstanding rural views and yet is only a short drive from the quintessential Dorset town of Sherborne and it's world class schools.

This is only the third time Hilfield Manor has come up for sale since it was constructed as an octagonal hunting lodge in the centre of the family estates, by the Dampier family in 1880 and then significantly extended in 1901 by TW Dampier-Bide.

The current owners undertook a thorough internal and external renovation project to create a wonderful family home. Hilfield Manor is a handsome and striking house boasting a fine octagonal tower which accommodates the beautiful and gracious ground floor drawing room, the wonderful master bedroom suite on the first floor and a study/bed 7 on the second floor which has a door out to a large flat roof area which benefits from amazing panoramic views.
