Plumber Manor defines 'Dorset Country Hotels'; a country house that's also a hotel, owned and managed by true country people. Plumber was a family home when Thomas Hardy was living in nearby Sturminster Newton. Plumber was built by Charles Brune in the early 17th century and has remained a family home of the Prideaux-Brunes ever since. The hotel, the archetypal English country house hotel, is now run as a family triumvirate; Richard is 'front of house' and guaranteed to provide a laugh, his brother Brian is Head Chef and Richard's wife Alison is simply everywhere. Rest assured, they know exactly how to make you feel at home with genuine hospitality. Please visit their website for further information.
