The beauty of St Giles House

St Giles House has come a long way to what it is today. The First Earl of Shaftesbury was born in Wimborne St Giles and on March 19th 1650, he wrote in his diary, “I laid the first stone of my house at St Giles”. Furthermore, it is possible that a pre-existing home was incorporated into the new one.

Since then, St Giles House built upon its rich history, until it fell into a state of disrepair. Following the Second World War, St Giles House was listed on the English Heritage “Buildings at Risk” register. In 2010, we began the five-year restoration plan to bring our beautiful home back to life. We are delighted to reveal that our restoration project has won St Giles House many awards including the 2015 Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Award for Building Conservation.

While we are putting the finishing touches to our accommodation this year, today St Giles House is a charming venue with private wedding garden hire like no other.
