Kingston Maurward House :-
Set in idyllic surroundings, Kingston Maurward House and Gardens are Dorset's best kept secret.

A tranquil, peaceful and intimate spot, beautifully situated in undulating Dorset countryside, with a picturesque lake, broad sweeping lawns and formal gardens.

This 18th century Mansion House was built for George Pitt, a cousin of Prime Minister Pitt the younger. The Mansion is featured in Thomas Hardy's first published novel "Desperate Remedies" as "Knapwater House" . Nearby lies Stinsford Parish Church, which had a strong association with the Hardy family.

Approached through parkland, the House and its beautiful state-rooms make the perfect venue for marriage ceremonies and receptions, parties, balls, dinner dances, conferences, exhibitions, team-building days, luncheons and many other occasions.

Wedding Trivia:
The Venetians Popularized the custom during the 15th. century. Since the diamond was the hardest and most enduring substance in nature it followed that the engagement and marriage would endure forever.
