This charming cottage dates back to the 1800s when it was originally built as the local quarry master’s home. Later, in the twentieth century, it was used as the post office and village shop. Now it’s been converted into a gorgeous holiday cottage for families or groups of friends looking to explore this delightful part of Dorset.
The cottage is full of character, from the beautiful brickwork and thatched roof to the cosy interior. Three luxurious bedrooms sleep five, making this perfect for family trips or escapes to the coast with friends. The large kitchen opens out onto a dining area, making this a social space where everyone can gather for a drink while dinner is being prepared. There’s even a wood burner for those chillier evenings. Modern appliances in this well-equipped kitchen make cooking as convenient as it is at home, however, the Symondsbury Estate does offer in-house catering options.
The large garden is a real bonus, especially in the summer months when you can fire up the barbecue and enjoy the sunshine on the terrace. There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained too, with a trampoline in the garden and a games room with table tennis.
There’s lots of exploring to be done in the pretty village and surrounding countryside. Walk up the nearby Colmers Hill to get a panoramic view of the surrounding scenery all the way to the sea. Then head back down into the village and enjoy some food and a refreshing drink from Symondsbury Kitchen. If you’re looking for a longer route, or one that you can cycle, there’s an 8km trail around the Symondsbury Estate which will give you a little taste of the beautiful Dorset countryside.
The village of Symondsbury is located just outside of Bridport and is a short drive from the world famous Jurassic Coast. This 95 mile stretch of stunning coastline is home to some iconic landmarks, such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. The closest seaside town is West Bay, just a 10-minute drive away. Fans of the hit TV show Broadchurch might recognise the beach here which is also part of the famous Chesil Beach.
