A beautiful Manor house on the glorious Dorset coast for 22
Accommodation for 22 in the heart of rural Dorset.
Behind Symondsbury Manor’s mellow stone walls and mullioned windows lies a surprising discovery: a fresh, creative interior full of colour and playful charm. The atmosphere of this special place always makes for a great house party.
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. Beyond the old stone garden walls is the picture perfect thatched village of Symondsbury, with welcoming pub, shop and café.
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. The location of this magical house could not be more perfect.
We have also 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!
