SPECTACULAR GEORGIAN RECTORY, TRADITIONAL, CATERING AVAILABLE, COAST 1.5 MILES

Photos and Description of this 11 bedroom holiday home in Bridport - Country House In Symondsbury

Sleeps 22/28 (11 Bedrooms)

The house lends itself perfectly as a great venue for all those family and friends celebrations or corporate events, and is an ideal place to base yourself for large family holidays. With eleven spacious double bedrooms and four large reception rooms, the house can sleep up to 28 guests at time, and is a great focal point for activities such as treasure hunts, walks/orienteering, art/music workshops, cooking courses, murder mystery nights, and office parties. It is set in a genuine and unspoilt Dorset village, just a mile and a half from the closest beach and a stones throw from the village pub.

Accessibility

There are no ground floor bedrooms at The Old Rectory so it may not be suitable for those with limited access.

Outside

Grounds of about one and a half acres with large lawns and flower gardens to the east and south, very suitable for knockabout tennis games. Beyond the gardens is a beautiful valley with views to the sea cliffs and downland.

The property is surrounded by rolling English countryside and is at the foot of the famous Colmers hill.

Important notes on accommodation

The decor of the house is in keeping with its period and we have tried to marry comfort with the atmosphere of a traditional country rectory. The building lends itself to weekend house parties in a genuine and unspoilt Dorset village. Both William Barnes and Thomas Hardy were regular visitors to Symondsbury and we like to feel that they would be pleased to see how familiar the house has remained.

The house has most of its original features including flagstone floors, open fireplaces, oak and pine floorboards, baize door coverings and a fine central staircase ascending through three floors. Children are of course very welcome.
