Symondsbury Estate is set in the beautiful Dorset countryside, but within a few miles of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site with unspoilt beaches and fabulous coastal walks. Symondsbury village is a hidden gem with cottages, a school and a local pub. The Estate, consisting of 1,500 acres of farmland and woodland, has been owned by the Colfox family for over 100 years.

Manor Yard is located in the heart of Symondsbury village and is a shopping treat for locals and visitors alike. There is a village shop, local businesses and independent shops. Symondsbury Store offers a wide range of local food and drink including local produce, fresh bread, pastries and cheese, as well as local beer, wine, gin and gifts.

If shopping isn’t your thing, you can visit Symondsbury Kitchen, which is a perfect place to dwell for a morning or afternoon taking in the relaxed country ambience. Serving breakfast, lunch, sunday lunch and afternoon tea, the cafe pride themselves on using home-grown and local seasonal ingredients and you can enjoy the outside seating.

Meet the animals, including sheep, pygmy goats and pigs at the Animal Viewing Area or enjoy the 8km trail that takes you round the most beautiful and historic areas of the Estate. Bikes are available to hire on the Estate at Bridport Cycles. The highlight of visiting Symondsbury Estate, has to be a walk up Colmer’s Hill, one of the most iconic landmarks in West Dorset, offering great views of the surrounding countryside.

There are a range of events throughout the year, such as the Colmer’s Hill Challenge, a Country Fair and a Christmas Market. Dogs are welcome at Symondsbury Estate, there is free wifi and plenty of free parking. It’s family friendly, accessible for wheelchairs, open 7 days a week and is located just a short drive from Highlands End, Golden Cap and Graston Copse Holiday Parks.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
