The Gardens

Knighton House is situated in a glorious Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the gardens benefit from stunning views of the rolling Dorset hills making the grounds of Knighton House the ideal location for your garden celebration and the perfect place for photographs.

French windows open from the Library onto a spacious terrace which wraps around the front of the house and is ideal for an outdoor drinks reception. Steps lead from the terrace to the front lawn which can accommodate a marquee or tipis for up to 150 seated dining guests. Larger marquees can be pitched on the spacious games lawn to the left of the house.

Between the front lawn and games lawn lies an enchanting woodland area and the entrance to our wooden outdoor play area nestled in the beautiful orchard. 

Positioned to the west of the house is the pretty cobbled courtyard enclosed within the former stable block and clock tower. 

Outdoor civil ceremonies can be arranged on the front lawn, orchard and cobbled courtyard, offering a unique selection of spaces in this most beautiful Dorset wedding venue. 

Knighton House is surrounded by twenty acres of privately owned gardens, fields and woodlands. You can therefore be assured of complete privacy and idyllic tranquility for your garden event.
