Cranborne Manor

Cranborne Manor is a grade I listed country house in the county of Dorset in southern England.

The manor dates back to the thirteenth century, and was originally a hunting lodge. It was remodelled for the 1st Earl of Salisbury in the early 17th century. The main seat of the earls and marquesses of Salisbury is Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, and Cranborne Manor is often the home of the heir to the title, who uses the courtesy title Viscount Cranborne.

The estate consists of a 3,000 acre in hand farm and over 1,700 acres of woods, as well as the park and gardens. The garden is open to the public on a regular basis, but the house is not open.
