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.
