Our bespoke kitchen design projects in and around Blandford Forum have been varied. We have designed for some fabulous period country houses. Our commissions have included traditional Georgian country homes, as well as a stunning transformation of a 17th century farmhouse kitchen.
Blandford Forum is a stunning small market town, full of architectural inspiration. Located on the banks of the River Stour, it is the most complete, small Georgian town in England. A devastating fire in 1731 means that few buildings earlier than the 18th century survive in the town, beyond a row of 17th-century almshouses on Salisbury Street, and The Old House, built circa 1660.
Often overlooked by those considering relocating from London, as Dorset is the only county in England without any motorways, Blandford Forum is located 13 miles northwest of Poole. It is home to the famous Hall and Woodhouse Brewery, brewing Badger beer since 1777. On the edge of town over the late August bank holiday weekend, Blandford hosts the annual Great Dorset Steam Fair.
Whilst nearby Kingston Lacy is a lavish family home in rural Dorset countryside, built to resemble an Italian Palace.
On the outskirts of the town is Bryanston School, an independent private day and boarding school. It occupies a palatial country house designed and built in 1889–94 by Richard Norman Shaw, in the early version of neo-Georgian style. When built the building and estate was the biggest in Dorset and the last of the grand stately homes to be built in England.
