HISTORY!
Moignes Court was built in 1267, and is the oldest inhabited house in Dorset.

When the Le Moigne heiress, Elizabeth, married Sir William Stourton in 1398, the manor passed to the Stourton family. In 1557 the then owner of the Owermoigne estate, Charles, 7th Lord Stourton, was hanged in Salisbury market square for the murder in Wiltshire of two men with whom he had been involved in a long-standing quarrel. Before his execution Lord Charles had pleaded with the reigning monarch, Queen Mary, for ‘some indulgence’ because he was a nobleman and a catholic. Honouring his request, the queen gave orders for him to be hanged with a ‘halter of silk in respect of his quality’. During the early part of the 18th century the manor was owned by French-born Sir Theodore Janssen, an extremely wealthy man who lost most of the fortune he had gained from being a director of the South Sea Company when the ‘Bubble’ burst in 1720.

The present owner of the Moignes Court estate is Mr Martin Cree, whose grandfather, Cecil Cree, gave the land on which Owermoigne Village Hall and Cricket Club were built.

The estate has been owned by the Cree family since 1826 when it was purchased by John Cree with the proceeds from the sale of the Thornhill House Estate, near Stalbridge, which he had inherited in 1815 from his uncle who was an East India merchant. One of John Cree’s sons, John Robert Cree, was both rector of St Michael’s church (1836-1881) and squire of Owermoigne, bearing the title ‘Squarson’. Rev. John Cree built the village school in 1873 and bequeathed funds for an extensive restoration of the church in 1883.

Moignes Court is a grade one listed building, and a fine example of a medieval manor house. It has three windows dating from 1263-80 in its medieval court room, a solar wing and remains of a medieval fishpond, and is surrounded by a rectangular moat.

During your stay

As much or as little as you need! We live in the main house, so we are available if you need us, and we are very friendly! The garden is shared with us and our children. We have three families living in the main house- between us we have 8 young children. Bed time in our house is 8:30 so we are unavailable at that time and respectfully ask guests to limit noise in the garden after 10:00pm. The horse box is set away from the main house so its ok to socialise and make noise on your private Veranda untill midnight.
