About the Owner

Looking to escape the home counties and move to the country, we bought Chaffeymoor Grange in 2005. A complete refurb. followed with the aim of providing top quality self catered accommodation for large groups. We opened for business in 2007 and have enjoyed welcoming hundreds of families and groups to our home since then.

Far enough west to feel like proper countryside but not so far as to feel completely cut off, Dorset ticks all the boxes! We love the beautiful rolling hills, green fields and uninterrupted views. And there's never any traffic!

Facilities

From the Owner

Many houses can sleep 24, but not all in such comfort! The house is warm, welcoming and homely, yet with ample space for everyone. Children especially love the space and freedom of the gardens. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots of lovely walks, including a cross-country walk to the local pub. Why not treat yourselves to a celebratory meal one night, prepared and served by our renowned local caterers?
