We were pleased to see Symondsbury Manor featured in a recent article in House & Garden magazine regarding the very successful G&T Garden Tours who used Symondsbury Manor as their base for the week...

"Alternatively – and always a tempting option – was the prospect of simply relaxing back at Symondsbury Manor, the characterful old house that was our charming base for the week. Hidden away in a tranquil, secluded garden beside the village church, yet just a short walk from the Georgian market town of Bridport, it provided a reassuringly calm, comfortable haven to return to at the end of each day – when we would be greeted by the welcome sight of a large teapot and a towering freshly baked cake (different each day) to be savoured on the terrace overlooking the garden or in the light open-plan living space. A delightful way to reflect upon the day’s events, while debating the merits of lemon drizzle versus coffee and walnut, carrot cake and Victoria sandwich."

Behind Symondsbury Manor’s mellow stone walls and mullioned windows lies a surprising discovery: a fresh, creative interior full of colour and playful charm. 


Up to 22 friends and family can spread across 11 bedrooms, sleeping in plump beds under white linen.  Light streams into the huge open-plan living space where everyone can gather comfortably together to eat, drink and generally celebrate.  Throughout the house, there are interesting pictures, books, vintage furniture and hand printed wallpapers at every turn. 

Outside, there’s a couple of acres or more of gardens and orchard to explore, with chandeliers in trees and a croquet set to unpack.

Travel just a mile and you meet the sea. Along this stretch of the Dorset Jurassic coast, there are spectacular walks along cliff tops and beaches, plus fossil hunting too.





A mile in the other direction takes you to bustling Bridport, famed for its street market of antiques, artisanal craft and local produce.


On your doorstep is the picture postcard village of Symondsbury. The Manor is right in the middle, so thatched pub, grocery shop and cafe are two minutes walk. 

The location of this magical house could not be

more perfect.

We have welcomed a few famous celebrities who have stayed with us here at Symondsbury Manor, including Sir Mick Jagger’s family, Jerry Hall, Boy George, Lee Mack, Count Arthur Strong, Simon Callow, Richard Ayre, Lee Child, Vanessa Kirby, Douglas Booth, Freddie Fox, Daisy Lowe and Jo Brand, just to name a few!

 "The Manor at Symondsbury is a truly magical place. The house is beautifully appointed and furnished in a way that allows for immediate habitation by incoming guests: after a quick tour to choose and squabble over bedrooms (which is itself fun, because they all have different attractions and features) guests feel entirely at home and start treating the place as their own. There is no sense, as there inevitably is in even the nicest hotel, that you are in someone else’s corporate property. You expect plumbing and heating to be slightly suspect but it isn’t! Everything you need works perfectly. The homeliness combines with the under-stated grandeur to create a very satisfying sense of comfort and ease. Decor - pictures, furniture, various accessories and architectural features - is full of character and delight. The grounds and gardens are a joy, with stone terraced beds, a little pond and lawns on different levels that allow you to discover endless charming spaces and features; the whole environment is a world apart, and yet it sits completely naturally within the village alongside the church, school and pub. We had a glorious 2 nights and days here, and will feed off the memories and images for many a day."
