Welcome to Symondsbury Estate, set in the beautiful countryside of West Dorset with rolling hills, steep banks and valleys. Just a short distance from the stunning, world famous Jurassic Coast with unspoilt beaches and coastal walks. 

The quaint chocolate box village of Symondsbury is positioned under the watchful eye of Colmers Hill, which is the hallmark of the area. Symondsbury Estate is privately owned and has been in the Colfox family for 150 years. Its 1500 acres is made up of farmland, ancient woodland, holiday, residential and commercial property. 



Over the last 3 years we have been striving to renovate many of the unused buildings throughout the estate to enable us to share them with others. 

Our most recent renovation is Manor Yard, which is set to be the hub of the village. This is set to be the focus for eating and leisure activities for our guests. We also offer a variety of markets, events, exhibitions and car boot sales. 

The Tithe Barn at Manor Yard has also undergone sympathetic and artistic renovations to enhance its natural beauty, whilst creating an elegant and charming wedding venue.

We now have 8 holiday properties ranging from Duck Street Cottage (sleeping 2) to Crepe Farmhouse (sleeping 17). All of our properties are finished to the very highest standard and we take pride in making sure your holiday is one to remember for all the right reasons.
