Wolfeton House Dorset

Wolfeton was a fine Tudor and Elizabethan manor house built by Thomas Trenchard in the 1500’s and today is a large remnant of what was original built. It was the Trenchard family home for many years, in the 16th century it was owned by George and in the 18th century it was abandoned by his descendants and gradually went into decline. In the early 1800’s some parts were demolished. In 1862 it was brought by W.H.P Preston and was repaired and renovated, the present owner is a kinsman of the Trenchard family and has carried out further work.

It is said to be haunted by the wife of Thomas Trenchard, who committed suicide by slitting her own throat, and also Thomas himself. He is seen driving a phantom coach with four horses up the main staircase.
