Welcome to Frampton House

Frampton House is a fine Grade II* 18th Century home situated in a very beautiful part of Dorset approximately five miles from the County Town of Dorchester and ten miles from the World Heritage coastline.

Frampton is the ideal location for a stay in the West Country.

The Stately Homes of Kingston Lacy and Athelhampton are close by, historic Corfe Castle and the beautiful Isle of Purbeck half a hour’s drive and the whole area is known for its outstanding natural beauty and delightful villages.

Frampton House itself has a fascinating history. Our guests join a long and distinguished list of personalities who have stayed here since the house was built in 1704. It was here that Richard Brinsley Sheridan, grandson of the famous playwright, entertained the artistic and literary figures of the time, such as Lord Melbourne, Sir Edwin Landseer, Thomas Hardy and William Makepeace Thackeray.
