About Julian & Jill Rigg

Owners Julian and Jill welcome you to the Manor House..

Julian & Jill Rigg purchased this house in 2011

Why Julian & Jill Rigg chose Abbotsbury

A unique house in a quiet location with beautiful scenery. The walking in the area and the views of the coast are simply stunning. The village is unspoiled and the surrounding country teeming with wildlife. It really is an oasis but within easy reach of major attractions.

What makes this house unique

Seclusion and peace but only a 10 minute walk to the village pub! Lying by the pool in our own little eco-climate (we have a palm tree in the garden). Watching the sun go down over 60 miles of coast only 100 yards from our home. Getting away from it all and wanting nothing when we're home.

Absolutely perfect, wonderful house in beautiful secluded surroundings. The 13 family members with ages ranging from 6months to 60+ all thoroughly enjoyed the family weekend away.The owner provided stair gates, highchairs, cots and was extremely helpful. Everyone wants to return next year

Perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the manor house, the house is beautiful and very well equipped. It was the perfect setting for a birthday celebration with friends. Julian and Jill were extremely helpful in the lead up to our holiday with lots of advice on the local area and directions on how to get to the house. They even fitted temporary stair gates for my toddler nephew who has recently discovered the joys of climbing stairs.

The pool was lovely and was warm even on a chilly day in April and there is plenty to do on an evening or a rainy day (lots of DVDs, table tennis well equipped gym etc).

I really can’t compliment the place enough! We loved it and will be back when we can!

A wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house. From the minute we walked through the door we knew this was going to be a fabulous weekend and it was. The house itself is beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Jill and Julian have thought of everything from the homemade brownies ( to die for!) waiting in the kitchen, cheese and wine to the comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms and everything else in between. We could not fault it. We were three generations celebrating a special birthday and the house and its grounds had something for everyone. Our grandchildren didn't want to leave. A perfect venue for a long overdue family get together. We will certainly be back. I would recommend the Manor House to anyone wanting to get together with friends in family.

West Dorset is a unique area with stunning scenery and a rich history. The famous Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site. The drive from the village along the coast to Bridport is simply stunning. The famous Abbotsbury Swannery is a 10 minute drive or 1.5 hours walk from the property. Attractions such as Lulworth Castle and Cove, Hardy’s Cottage, Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World, Stourhead, Sherborne, are all within 30-60 minutes’ drive.

The Area

Located just outside the beautiful coastal village of Langton Herring, only 10 minutes’ drive away are the sandy beaches at Weymouth, rated among the top 5 beaches in the UK. The National Sailing Centre is 15 minutes’ drive. West Bay and its beach are 20 minutes’ drive. Dorchester with its new Brewery Square development is 20 minutes’ drive and offers numerous restaurants and a brand new Odeon Cinema. The other main attractions of West Dorset are numerous and all within 30-45 minutes’ drive. There are many places to eat including the local pub, The Elm Tree, a 10 minute walk from the house. Here they serve good food and specialise in seafood. Our favorite places to eat include Hive Beach Café (Burton Bradstock – 20 mins), The Crab House Café (Wyke Regis – 15 mins), The Manor House, West Bexington – 15 mins), Yarbury Cottage, (Lower Bockhampton – 20 minutes)
