High Dalby House
High Dalby House had humble origins as a single roomed 17th Century farmhouse. The Boddy family farmed the land for 250 years during which time the house was periodically extended. In the 1940’s the Forestry Commission bought the house and used it to accommodate their Senior Officers until they sold it to newspaper magnate Sir Meredith Whittaker in 1956. Sir Meredith and Lady Whittaker undertook major works converting the main house into the magnificent country house it presents today.
When we purchased the property in 2010 it was in a sad state of repair. Building and landscaping works commenced with the aim of creating the fabric, ambience and private environment for the perfect guest experience. We only accommodate adults and can now proudly offer guests the choice of staying in one of our five luxurious serviced guest rooms or one of our two self catering cottages. We do not accept pets with the exception of assistance dogs. Free off road parking is available for our guests.
