The Old Rectory is a Grade II* listed building, very much gently Georgian in style. It’s suitable for parties of family and friends, either for a jolly holiday, or to celebrate a special occasion. It is also suitable for corporate use, and can be used as a base for art or music workshops, cookery courses or team-building activities.

There are eleven generous bedrooms, two of which have king-size four-posters. One of the rooms has twin beds and there’s a family room with a double bed and three single beds. Six of the bedrooms have en-suites, and there are three shared bathrooms. The house can sleep up to 22 guests (and 7 children).

Downstairs, the reception rooms are large and well-equipped. There’s a large drawing room with a grand piano, and a library that acts as a games room,

House Facts

The house was a serving rectory until 1951, when it passed into private hands. The building itself dates back to 1730, although two wings were added in 1814. Symondsbury's rectory is thought to be one of the largest and most impressive rectories in the country, and at one time, the rector ran his own pack of hounds (the kennels can still be seen). Guests are encouraged to behave well whilst staying...else face the dungeon, built into the wine cellar!
