The detail

Driving through the grand gates, your first glimpse of Symondsbury Manor is bound to take your breath away. Seeped in history, this elegant Tudor property is spacious enough to comfortably sleep up to 22, making it the perfect place for a family reunion or a getaway with friends. Inside, the relaxed, playful style cleverly mixes contemporary colour with period features. The country house is elegant and luxurious, but without a hint of stiff formality, so you’ll feel at home right away.

There are plenty of multipurpose living spaces to accommodate everyone’s needs. The ballroom is a fantastic area for kids to explore and play a game of table football or table tennis. There’s even a grand piano if anyone fancies tinkling the ivories and the open-plan living space is bright and airy, thanks to its gorgeous French windows. The collection of comfy sofas clustered around a working wood-burner provide the perfect place to relax and chat. And at the other end of the space, you’ll find a huge dining table that seats up to 24.

Opening the French doors, you can step out onto the pretty terrace to enjoy the idyllic view of the gardens. Choose to relax in a comfy garden chair or play a game of badminton or croquet. And while the grown-ups light the built-in barbeque, children can look for fish in the pond, meet the resident chickens or have a ride on the fairground horse suspended from an old oak tree.

Back inside the manor, the charming, country kitchen is well equipped with a four-oven AGA, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridges and all the equipment you need to cater for your brood. And if you don’t feel like cooking yourself, a list of caterers, from budget to fine dining, can be provided.

When it’s time to turn in for the night, you’ll be spoilt for choice with 11 bedrooms on offer, five of which have either freestanding baths or en suite facilities. You’ll also find four-poster beds, hand printed wallpaper and Designers Guild curtains. As well as the en suites, there are a further four bathrooms, so you won’t be queuing for a shower in the morning.

If you can tear yourself away from this magnificent property, the surrounding area offers a wealth of history and natural beauty. The world-famous Jurassic Coast is just a short stroll away and if you fancy a spot of fossil hunting, Lyme Regis is no more than a 20 minute drive away. Bridport, the nearest town, offers independent shops and plenty of great pubs, cafes and restaurants. It’s also home to an interesting art and antiques quarter and hosts a weekly market on Saturdays and a monthly French market.
