Athelhampton nestles in the Piddle valley, between Tolpuddle and Puddletown, and is easily reached from the A35 main road.
The ancient manor of Athelhampton has been continually lived in since Saxon times. The manor is mentioned in the Domesday book.
The current house was largely constructed in Tudor times, with the Great Hall built by Sir William Martyn in 1485, considered one of the finest examples of Tudor architecture in England
