Birkin House can offer you luxurious Victorian accomodation with a full English breakfast. Built in 1875 by the Thornton family, many original features can still be seen, including all twenty eight fireplaces. The Archer family purchased Birkin House in 1997 and are only the third family to live here. With peacocks and small deer roaming the grounds, Birkin House is situated in ideal surroundings for country walks and visits to local attractions such as Hardy Cottage. Birkin House is one mile from the historic town of Dorchester, and eight miles from the sandy beaches of Weymouth Bay. So whether it is warming yourself by a roaring open fire or sitting on the formal lawns with a cool drink, and enjoyable visit and journey back to Victorian times is here for you at Birkin House.
