This 17th Century Riding House sits on the Shaftesbury Estate within the grounds of St Giles House in Wimborne St Giles, the home of Nicholas Ashley Cooper, the 12th Earl of Shaftesbury, his wife Dinah and their three children. Lord and Lady Shaftesbury believe in sharing the magic of St Giles with the world and after an award winning restoration the house is now a place where you can escape, relax and unwind surrounded by over 400 years of British History. Over the years St Giles House has been at the heart of politics, philosophy and social thought. It's inspired generations of people who have had influence on the world around them. The recent restoration has seen it brought back to life and become a family home once again. We are now excited to share it with you.
