Trip Advisor
Garden - Stock Gaylard

Stock Gaylard Estate is a small, working traditional country estate just over 4 miles from Sturminster Newton and 8 miles from Sherborne in Dorset.

The estate is approximately 1800 acres with around 300 acres of predominantly oak woodland, 80 acres of common land and an enclosed 80-acre deer park with a small lake.

Over the last couple of hundred years the estate has been used for country sports and the hedgerows and woodlands preserved for that purpose. The result is an unspoilt environment that encompasses modern dairy farming with a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The pub has been extensively refurbished and has a fresh new look inside and a fantastic new beer garden.

Our quintessential Glamping Dorset pub prides itself on its delicious homemade, local and fresh food with an excellent drinks selection including local real ales & ciders, old favourites and an extensive wines and spirits list. The Green Man at Kings Stag offers the perfect balance between a traditional and contemporary pub.

Peaceful, a totally grounding experience.

…the perfect place to reset, recharge and just be. From the beautiful sunrises and sunsets to the amazing stars and we were lucky enough to see the full blue moon. Our wood peckers were still there too. The bed is super comfy, it has all you need for an off grid experience but with a little luxury, just a beautiful place to be.

Lovely Local Area, Recommend it

We visited the house for a guided tour. Andrew was an amusing and knowledgeable host and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The house and it’s church are small but the local history is very interesting.
