The Old Rectory
The Old Rectory, Symondsbury, Bridport, Dorset, DT6 6HF
This fine Grade II* Georgian Rectory is set in grounds of about one and a half acres with large lawns and flower gardens to the east and south, which are suitable for lawn games. Beyond the gardens is a beautiful valley with views to the sea cliffs and downlands. There is a south facing verandah with plenty of seating.
With eleven spacious bedrooms and four large reception rooms, the house can sleep up to twenty nine guests at time (22 plus children), 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.
Reception rooms include a games room with ping pong/snooker/pool, a dining room with seating for up to 24, a large living room with tv/sky/music system and a breakfast room.
The Old Rectory is situated in the genuine and unspoilt Dorset village of Symondsbury, just a mile and a half from the closest beach and a stones throw from the village pub.
West Dorset has beautiful countryside and seaside, the coast is less than two miles away and is part of the World Heritage “Jurassic Coast”. Popular with ramblers and hikers, there are also many opportunities for fishing and water sports. The vibrant market town of Bridport is only a mile away, Lyme Regis is also close by.
