About Dunedin Country House - Luxury Bed & Breakfast

Dunedin Country House was built between 1841 -1846, and encompasses both the late Georgian and early Victorian build designs. Our function rooms have beautiful fireplaces to laze away the winter afternoons, teamed with original features and amazing views over the lawned Victorian garden and across the fields to the River Humber.

The property was originally built by a surgeon, Dr Lands, who apparently on travelling the world, fell in love with the Scottish settlement of Dunedin in New Zealand. On his return and settlement in Patrington, he built and named Dunedin Country House, it is said that many of the old trees within the grounds were brought from his travels.

 'Patrington Workhouse' was built next to Dunedin and was in operation as a parish poorhouse between 1837-8, closing its doors in 1947, from which it was used by Redferns as a crisp factory until it was demolished in 1981. The old workhouse wall adjoining the west side of Dunedin is still standing and can be seen on the 1910 map @ www.workhouses.org.uk/patrington.

Dunedin has had many varied owners and occupiers, most recently the local village doctor resided from 1924-1981. Dr Cripps lived at Dunedin with his family and also ran the local doctors surgery from the stable block. Many people from the village still refer to the House as the 'Doctors'.  The poor parishioners visited the Doctor in the stable block, whilst 'wealthier' parishioners remember seeing the Doctor in the Study in the Main House which is now the Guest Lounge, a large bookcase still remains in the Study and would undoubtably been used by Dr Cripps.

We have a whole pile of documents dating back to 1840, namely deeds, insurance, mortgage documents and even divorce settlements. All of which can be viewed if of interest.
