About Julian Rigg

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

Julian Rigg purchased this house in 2011

Why Julian 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.

Fantastic family holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
The property was immaculate and had all the facilities and more that you could want. We stayed for one week as a group of 12, from ages 5months to 60's. Everyone was impressed and enjoyed the pool, trampolines, gym and table tennis. There's plenty of space for everyone to spread out. I would definitely recommend Manor house as a holiday home for a group of family or friends. We hope to visit again!

Home from Home

  • 5 out of 5
Three generations of our family all had a super week at the Manor House, and needed for nothing, the time just went so quickly. The pool and the gym were well used, as were the terraces. It is a beautiful setting and a real family home. We loved the kitchen and easily seated 11 people around the dining room table which will be a great memory.
Having the provisions in the larder such as stock cubes, vinegar, oil, ketchup and spices was brilliant as you cant remember to pack everything you might need.
The intermittent mobile signal was a challenge, but outweighed by the easily accessible wifi.
Excellent directions enabled us to find the property without having to turn round!

we were spoilt !

  • 5 out of 5
9 girls spent the weekend at the Manor House. The photos do not do it justice. The place is beautiful and it looks like it has only just been decorated with new carpets and bathrooms. Once the fridge is full, you really do not need to leave the property at all. It has everything any group of people / family / friends need. TV's everywhere, wifi, different outside areas to relax and eat, a BBQ, vast grounds to explore, a heated pool (which really was warm enough and I dont "do" cold water) a very well equipped gym that looks out over the Dorset countryside, table tennis, pool table and games. Stunning, stunning, stunning. If you are going or thinking of booking this property you are in for a fabulous treat.

Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
There were 11 of us staying at the Manor House for 3 nights. We were not disappointed. The grounds are amazing. The house is beautiful. The meet and greet was really helpful. Loved the swimming pool it was nice and warm. It is great for a big family holiday, you never feel crowded there are loads of places to be with everyone or on your own if you need space. Would definitely recommend. 10/10.

Perfect for our large family break

  • 5 out of 5
The house is a very welcoming, beautifully decorated, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The warm Aga in the kitchen, the pool and the large grounds all got plenty of use during our family break. There is even a hill which is perfect for rolling eggs at Easter. It was the perfect setting for our multi-generational family break of 6 adults and 6 kids. When we could tear ourselves away from the house the footpaths and coast nearby were beautiful for walks and bike rides and it was only a short drive to the Hive Beach Cafe in Burton Bradstock and all the tourist attractions of pretty Abbotsbury. A lovely area of Dorset to visit.

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)
