Minterne House is a Grade II* Country mansion situated in the centre of the village of Minterne Magna which is located in the heart of the Dorset country, midway between Dorchester and Sherborne. The house was once the home of the first Sir Winston Churchill and is beautifully positioned in the valley. The occupiers enjoy access to over 20 acres of beautiful gardens, landscaped by Admiral Henry Digby in the 18th century, and renowned for superb examples of Magnolia, rhododendron and azaleas towering over small lakes, streams and cascades. Minterne, with High Stoy and Dogbury Hill was the setting from Thomas Hardy's 'The Woodlanders' and the old Churchill-Digby House was Great Hintock House.
