History Of Merley House

Merley House in Wimborne, Dorset, was built in 1756. Merley (originally spelt Myrle) was an ancient manor belonging to the Lords of Canford. In 1751, Ralph Willett purchased the estate and built the more significant and much grander house we see today.

A walled garden was built to the North East of the house with an Orangery on the south side. This has survived to this day and used to be known as the Merley Bird Gardens, home to many exotic bird species. It is now the Orangery Suite.

In 1875 the whole estate was sold by auction, but there is little information about whom it was sold until it was bought by Ivor Guest, 1st Lord of Wimborne. In 1927, the MP for South Dorset, Angus Valdemar Hambro, purchased the estate in a dilapidated condition, spending two years renovating it.

In 1939 the outbreak of war meant that the War Office requisitioned the house. When they left in 1946, the house was again sold at auction. Now down to just 270 acres, it was sold in 14 lots, and the place was converted into flats.

During the 1960s, the present owners started a holiday park to help finance the house’s restoration. The ground floor was opened to the public and contained a collection of model cars, lorries, aeroplanes, ships and train sets. Most recently, the downstairs was restored to create spacious and elegant areas.
