Set within the vibrant market town of Bridport in Dorset, this traditionally renovated Georgian townhouse is luxurious, spacious and exceptionally well-equipped - the perfect venue for a family reunion or a gathering of friends.
With its private cinema, games room, nine bedrooms and diverse living and dining spaces, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place than Allington Court to house and entertain a large group of people. The interiors are elegant and sumptuous, with cosy communal areas, beautifully furnished bedrooms and roll top baths. The enclosed gravel garden is perfect for relaxing in the sunshine or dining al fresco. And all the amenities of bustling Bridport are on your doorstep, not to mention the stunning Jurassic Coast just a few minutes away. This is the ultimate home-from-home.
Allington Court is located in the heart of Bridport, a market town known for its local shops and street markets. At West Bay there is a small harbour with shingle beaches on either side, and the ancient Jurassic Coast awaits your exploration. There are shops, pubs, restaurants and amenities aplenty within a short walk of the house.
Allington Court is owned by the Symondsbury Estate. Set amongst pasture and ancient woodland in rural Dorset, Symondsbury Estate is within walking distance of beautiful, untouched beaches along a vast stretch of coastline. Owned by the Colfox family for over a hundred years and with buildings dating back to 1440, Symondsbury Estate is near to the Jurassic coast and to so many amazing beaches that you will be spoilt for choice. A short walk takes visitors to the top of Colmer hill to enjoy the stunning panoramic view of the sea and rolling hills of the Dorset countryside. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a buzzard overhead. There are plenty of other routes and historic paths over the estate and bicycles can be hired for this purpose.
Animal lovers will get a chance to meet the animals in an animal viewing area where Black pigs, Pygmy goats and the ever-friendly Minty the sheep are a delight to all children as well as their parents. Symondsbury Estate’s garden provides fresh, organic produce for the Symondsbury Kitchen all the year round and some of these delicious items such as jams, marmalades, cheeses, beers, and gins can be purchased by guests. Horse and Carriage rides are on offer for a leisurely tour of the area and for the more adventurous there are even survival courses on offer which teach key survival skills delivered by experienced and knowledgeable trainers. One-day taster courses for the bold and four-day courses for the even bolder!
