10 Castle Street
A country retreat with an endless array of activities including cycling, fishing, horse riding, shooting, sailing and wine tasting, a weekend trip away from London never seemed more appealing.
10 Castle Street, located in Cranborne Chase was previously known as Cranborne Lodge where it was a popular hunting ground for medieval kings. The house itself boasts an extraordinary history dating back to the eighteenth century. Recently remodelled to a high standard of luxury by Alexander and Gretchen Boon, this grade II* listed country house in Dorset is a fantastic example of a traditional country mansion steeped in history and character and is now home to an exclusive private members club with capacity for private parties and hunting weekends.
Divided between two – a private members club and restaurant open to all – the members club is situated on the first and second floors and includes a member’s bar, dining room, drawing room, billiard room, children’s play room, private outside bar and terrace and created an ideal social environment for interaction and inspiration. The public restaurant for non-members includes a bar and a garden terrace with views across the grounds.
The property acts as an exhibition space and artist’s hub, in which local artists can display their work. The garden displays a fine selection of art and sculpture by various artists including Hamish Mackie, Simon Gudgeon, Chris Levine, Patricia Low, Hazel Morgan, Ursula Leach, Shaftesbury based photographer, Bella West and pieces from Guilded are also displayed in the house. Art is such an important part of its character at 10 Castle Street that even some of the walls have been hand painted by local artist Freddie Wimsett.
