Simon & Nicky
Melcombe nestles in its own beautiful valley in the heart of Dorset, with far reaching views over fields and woodland, in the middle of its own estate. The approach is by a private road along an avenue of lime trees, then under the magnificent copper beech to the garden. There are just two sumptuous double rooms each with its own ambience on the second floor with brand new ensuite bathrooms and a shared Sitting Room with television and video. Additional rooms may be available from time to time
Simon & Nicky are delighted to welcome you to there home, the Grade I listed Higher Melcombe Manor. Simon still works at the Hampshire Farm running a Wholesale Business & Farm . Nicky spends her time looking after children, horses & dogs at Higher Melcombe Farm and running B&Bs.
