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:
TOAST
The term originates from the sixteenth century. At that time a small piece of bread would be placed in a goblet of wine. The goblet would be passed from guest to guest until it reached the person being honored who would drain the goblet and eat the morsel of bread in the bottom. This tradition is practiced at weddings today - usually in the form of one or more champagne "toasts". The best man has the honor of giving the first toast. Usually the bride and groom remain seated for the toasts while all the guests are usually standing to honor them. The couple may then make a few remarks thanking their families, wedding party members, and guests. They may also "toast" each other or share a "toast" together. Often special glass or silver goblets are used by the bride and groom.
