Our stay of the week – 10 Castle Street, Dorset

Refurbished yet brimming with old-world charm, 10 Castle Street brings a refreshing mix of English country interiors and colonial design flourishes to the heart of Dorset. Situated on the edge of Cranborne Chase, this Palladian-style gem pulls out all the stops as a restaurant, bar, hotel and private members’ club that feels as welcoming as it does exclusive.

The property calls a Grade II-listed building its home, and has stayed true to its extravagant history dating back to the 18th century. Splashes of greenery make a statement of sophistication and warmth while bold hues, hand-painted walls and art displays give each room their unique atmosphere. Amongst its distinctive features you’ll find expansive gardens, nine individually-designed guest rooms and a handful of character-packed drinking and dining spaces – including the glass-roofed Tasting Room, the dashing Drawing Room and a colonial-inspired outdoor room.

Delightfully eccentric yet down-to-earth, 10 Castle Street is as well suited for luxuriating and whiling days away as it is for an active country break. You’ll find its natural surrounds ideal for cycling, fishing, sailing and horse riding and if you’re after some seriously fresh air, seek out the best of Cranborne Chase – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covering 380 square miles of hills, valleys and ancient woodlands.
