This is a chance to see our latest Landmark before it opens its doors to the first Landmarkers. For most of the 20th century, Dunshay Manor was home to a remarkable artistic family: George and Hilda Spencer Watson, and their daughter, renowned sculpter Mary Spencer Watson. Bequeathed to the Landmark Trust by Mary, this ancient house breathes history, lying hidden in its own hollow a couple of miles from the Dorset coast. Restored in the 1900's in the Arts & Crafts and newly refurbished by Landmark, it has a friendly, open feel. Corfe Castle appears across the fields and the Swanage Steam Railway passes close by.
Please join us at this free open day to see the house restored to its former glory.
Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history. Click here for location.
There will be another chance to see Dunshay when we open it for Heritage Open Days, on Sat 21 and Sun 22 September 2019.
Please note: there is no parking on site. Please park in the carpark opposite Harman's Cross Village Hall - this operates on an honesty box system with a suggested donation of £1 per car.
