Dinmore manor estate, located in one of England’s most unspoilt rural counties, is impeccable – quite a feat given it covers more than 1,500 acres of productive arable land, pasture and woodland.
From its elevated position, the manor house commands sweeping views, yet is completely private. With origins dating back to the 12th century, and mostly rebuilt around the time of Queen Elizabeth I, the Grade II-listed house and private chapel have recently been meticulously refurbished. Highlights include the house’s music room with its vaulted ceiling and Victorian organ, and the stained-glass windows on the back wall of the chapel cloisters.
The same attention to detail has been applied throughout: “The estate’s history goes back to the Knights Templar, yet the facilities for the farm, cattle and equestrian operations are the most up to date you could wish for,” says Crispin Holborow, Country Director, Savills Private Office.
The estate is very much a working one. Its diverse income streams include a registered stud farm known for breeding top-class showjumping horses, and a highly successful cattle-breeding operation. A commitment to land management has created the ideal conditions for a high-quality pheasant and partridge shoot. “Dinmore is in a condition most property owners can only aspire to,” says Crispin. “It has incredible estate facilities, and is a magical house.”
