Dartfordleigh House

Dartfordleigh House was purchased in 2005 by owner Alex Warne and to this day retains its late Victorian period character; following extensive refurbishment and modernisation. The country house is large and comfortable and guests are free to use all the facilities available, relax and treat it as home.

The grand hallway greet’s you on arrival with country scenes adorning the walls. From here you have a large lounge, a well stocked library/games room and a dining room of baronial proportions. Each room benefits from a traditional, cosy wood burner.

Dartfordleigh House retains its family atmosphere, furnished with a fantastic collection of riding, hunting and sporting memorabilia and antique furniture that is period with the property. The library houses a good collection of equine books together with photos, ornaments and mementos, personal to Alex.

Access to the upper floor bedrooms is by way of the rather grand staircase, leading on to four en-suite double rooms with either a shower or bath and a further two twin bedded rooms which share a bathroom.

You will find that Dartfordleigh, whilst large enough to accommodate a group, still offers plenty of areas for individuals to retreat and find peace. Our stables and yard are immediately behind the property, allowing easy access for guests who will be riding and/or bringing their own horses.

Dog Friendly

Dartfordleigh House welcome all dogs and dog owners, offering dog-friendly accommodation and some great walks…not to mention plenty of outdoor space, miles of open moorland, forest’s and rivers for you to enjoy with your dog.

Please bring your own dog beds, dog bedding and food with you and ensure that your dog/s are not left unattended. We also ask that you do not feed your dog in your room, let your dog climb on the bed or furniture and that should accidents happen, you clean up after your pet.

Reviews and testimonials

Don't just take our word for what previous guests have said about our accommodation at Dartfordleigh House.

The host, Alex was very helpful in explaining some beautiful walks and his knowledge of the local area ensured all our walks had the best views. I can’t wait to visit again, and neither can my dog who was made to feel as welcome as I was.
