Dean's Court is an historic house a stone’s throw from the Minster in Wimborne. Owned by the same family for nearly 500 years, the house lies within romantic ancient gardens, containing a Saxon fishpond fed by a chalk trout stream, an apiary, orchard, herb garden, mature specimen trees and an old kitchen garden with a ‘crinkle-crankle’ serpentine wall.

The garden of 13 acres comprises of some very interesting mature specimens. The Mexican Swamp Cypress (110ft tall - right) and the Tulip tree (90ft - right) were planted by Thomas Hanham in May 1607, having returned from New England. Other trees include Mulberries, Ginkos, Catalpas, Walnuts, Handkerchief, Turkey oak, two large Wellingtonias and a 40ft Magnolia Grandiflora, planted c.1870. The kitchen garden is surrounded on by a long wall. Adjacent to the walled garden are the enclosed rose garden and the apiary.
