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.

Set in an idyllic Dorset village where time seems to stand still the Old Rectory is an excellent place to stay. The custodians of the house are most amicable and it is quite a spacious and old-fashioned building nestled snugly in some of the most stunning scenery and countryside.

A large group of us stayed here to celebrate a 60th birthday. It is a very quirky place to stay! The rooms all have different themes, I particularly love the Moroccan cave!!!!! We found the kitchen a little small to cater for so many people, but that said, we coped. The staircase is a bit wobbly so be careful if you have kids, also the dining room floor needs a bit of attention. That said, we all had a wonderful time here. The location is superb, try the pub and The Symondsbury Kitchen. Bridport is within walking distance, which had lovely individual shops, go to Snooks the hat shop!

We had a brilliant time with a group of 20 friends for my husbands 40th! The house is amazing with so much character and space. Surrounding area is gorgeous and pub across the road perfect! Recommended.
