The Estate

The Manor House

Nestled in four acres of beautiful Dorset parkland, this secluded Georgian Manor House will make you feel like you’re escaping to the heart of the countryside. Grand yet inviting, the Manor House will add a touch of splendour to your unforgettable wedding day.

We had a fantastic wedding day at Parley Manor. The attention to detail leading up to the day was incredibly reassuring. On the day Charlotte and Malcolm did their very best to ensure the day ran smoothly- Thank you very much! It was an amazing day thanks to the organisation of Parley Manor & Merlin’s. We highly recommend anyone thinking of booking Parley Manor to do so.

Emma & Robin Friday 2nd August 2019

Our day was perfect from start to finish and we can’t thank Parley & Merlins enough. The surroundings are beautiful, the food was amazing, but most importantly the people we interacted with who looked after us from Parley & Merlins were so easy going, happy to answer our million questions and be available all day on the day. (We’ve been to some places & no-ones around) You guys are the best & our day wouldn’t have been the same without you/anywhere else. We are so grateful and our day will be one we remember for a very long time! Guests said it was the prettiest/best organised wedding they’d been to! xx

Kelly & Robert Friday 23rd August 2019

Our day was absolutely perfect, we were very calm (maybe too calm?) So having both the Parley team and the Merlin’s team help us know what was happening when and where was extremely helpful. All of our guests commented on how happy we both looked and honestly it’s the best day I have had in a long time. Matthew & I never want to forget how perfect the day was and hope everyone getting married at Parley also has an incredible day and have a long and happy marriage.

I wanted to start by thanking you again, especially for all of your great help on the actual day of the wedding. You really helped to take the stress away and everything was just amazing.  We are so so happy with our choice of the wedding venue, it couldn’t have been any better. Thank you again so so much

Thank you so much for everything you did for us on and leading up to our wedding day. I can honestly say that everything was perfect from start to finish. Staff were extremely helpful and any recommended suppliers we used were incredible!

Carley & Daniel Saturday 22nd June 2019

Honestly our wedding was just so perfect, it is incredibly difficult to actually find anything to suggest to improve. It was truly amazing! Thank you so much for everything you all did from Charlotte, to Merlins, to Malcolm.

The Gardens

Enchanting gardens, brimming with English charm

Our traditional English gardens will play a pivotal role in the making of your wedding day. The immaculately kept gardens and lawns of the estate will act as your own private sanctuary, providing a picturesque background for your wedding photographs.

The Italian Walled Garden

A little taste of Italy

Our Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our best kept secret, and yet still an area of absolute tranquillity. The garden is a meticulously maintained haven, which will transport you to another era.

Adorned with outdoor seating and garden furniture, our walled garden is the ideal place to relax with a glass of something sparkling on a warm summer’s evening.

Parley Manor History

A charming Georgian Manor house, preserved in time

Built in the early 1700s and lovingly cared for, Parley Manor will make you feel like you’ve stepped back to times gone by.

This grand yet elegant, family run, Georgian Manor house is situated on what was once a large country estate, stretching from Hurn Forest to the River Stour. Today, the grounds are made up of four acres of parkland and gardens, offering you an exclusive secluded wedding venue, situated on the Dorset/Hampshire border. As you sip champagne in the traditional English gardens, you’ll be reminded of the countless celebrations that have come before yours, and your special day will become a part of the estate’s grand history.

The old and the new work in perfect harmony at Parley Manor. The manor itself provides a splendid backdrop for your photographs, while the canopy for your evening reception is well equipped to host a 21st-century celebration.

In close proximity to Christchurch, Poole, and Bournemouth, Parley Manor is well connected to the outside world, making it convenient for wedding guests. In addition, Parley Manor’s expansive grounds and clear blue skies will make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
