If the walls of St Giles Estate could talk, they’d spin epic tales of royal courtship and grand romance. This cherished venue is the home to the Earl of Shaftesbury, who have renovated with the perfect balance of grace and intimacy. The elegantly faded grandeur of the reception rooms, offers an enchanting backdrop to your wedding. Outside, the ‘Garden in a Wild’ rewilding project presents the outdoors as a wild, romantic extension of St Giles’ esteemed history.

This 18th-century estate is set deep in the Dorset countryside. The main house, with its Georgian portico is meticulously maintained, it is surrounded by original farm buildings which have been converted to create the most luxurious contemporary accommodation, including housing an indoor swimming pool.
