Following on from the huge success of their restaurant The Tickled Pig in Wimborne and subsequent catering business Tickled Pig Events, Jez and Niki have launched their own brand of boutique accommodation on the outskirts of Winterborne Kingston. In the form of a large rambling Victorian farmhouse known as Abbots Court they will be providing not only luxury accommodation but the chance for guests to experience a nostalgic trip to a time when things were simpler, all coupled with every comfort that they could wish for. As you pass beneath the arch of the twin sycamores that tower over the entrance to the drive you will feel that you have left the stresses of the outside world on the other side of the five bar gate.
Nestled in five acres of its own woodland, meadow and boasting its own original walled kitchen garden, guests will be able to enjoy the simple pleasures in life - long lazy walks through the rolling Dorset countryside, food picked fresh from the garden, roaring fires and cosy evenings spent in the company of those you love.
Boasting 7 double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms the house is a grand and well built old lady with bags of character. We loved her from the off and have delighted in uncovering and restoring all of her original features. From the beautiful floor tiles to the fireplaces and wooden shutters.
The whole project has been sponsored by Farrow and Ball and we are extremely proud to be showcasing their amazing paint and paper throughout.
Those visitors who already know us from our restaurant in Wimborne, The Tickled Pig, will not be disappointed and here at Abbots Court we will be able to indulge our guests even more (if that is possible). From our traditional breakfast cooked by Jez in the big country kitchen (feel free to collect the eggs yourselves) to our small evening menu inspired by the produce we are growing, rearing and foraging.
We are lucky enough to be able to host a small and select number of weddings at Abbots Court as well as our outside event and wedding catering. If this might be of interest please get in touch with the events team at email@example.com
