Symondsbury Manor is a historic manor house standing in two and a half acres of garden in the heart of a picturesque village of thatched cottages. The house offers comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 23 people and is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday or to gather with friends and family to celebrate a special occasion such as a landmark birthday or family reunion.
Staying at Symondsbury is a delightful and unique experience. The life size zebra in the garden gives you a hint on your arrival of the relaxed, playful style hidden inside this traditional Tudor manor. The house contains a large number of paintings collected over many years by the owner, Peter, who is himself a painter. He has mixed colourful, contemporary furnishings with traditional pieces to create an environment which guests find provides the space, history and grandeur of country house living without the formality.
The Manor has been visited and appreciated by a host of famous guests both past and present from Thomas Hardy in 1883 to, more recently, Sir Mick Jagger’s family, Simon Callow, Sir Richard Eyre, Julian Barnes, Boy George, Daisy Lowe and Douglas Booth and many others.
Symondsbury is one mile from the bustling and busy market town of Bridport and one mile from the sea. Surrounded by beautiful coastlines and countryside, famous for its geology and fossil finds, the area has now been awarded World Heritage Site status.
