“Wonderful Country Escape”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had such a wonderful time at Bilshay - our second year in a row going and it never disappoints.

Stunning setting, very comfortable rooms, great walks from the property with the coast close by and the hot tub was an added luxury. We loved every minute of our stay at Bilshay.

That said, there are a few improvements needed - After some rain, the mud on the road leading to the property was very dangerous, especially with a rear wheel drive car. This was a massive issue - the state of the road was as bad as if it were sheet ice. We would certainly want to know if we came again in autumn or winter that the road was being maintained. It is a shame that the road to such a idyllic farmhouse is so treacherous. Also, one side of the oven does not work which made cooking for 10 people a little tricky and the farmhouse requires a new music/sound system (the iPod dock system was not working).

Thank you very much!

“A brilliant carefree holiday on the Symondsbury Estate”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our family - 6 adults and 4 children stayed at the Bilshay Farmhouse on the Symondsbury Estate about a mile or so from Bridport, Dorset . The first thing to say is that everyone at Symondsbury was very helpful from the time of booking the holiday through to the day we left for home.

The farmhouse is very comfortable and spacious and the housekeeper had contacted us to ensure the bedrooms were arranged to match our family needs - a small thing but so brilliant. The farmhouse, set in its own grounds, is so peaceful with stunning views of the Dorset countryside.It is also equipped with a gas barbeque, a hot tub and a games room in the stable block. As much as we enjoyed traveling around Dorset everyone was happy to return to Bilshay to enjoy the amenities.

Bridport is a bustling town and well worth visiting for shops, its market and restaurants. The closest resort is West Bay of Broadchurch fame but the whole of the Jurassic Coast is a joy to visit while Weymouth is a must if you have children. Weymouth has an excellent and cheap park and ride system.

It has been some 30 years since we visited Dorset last but this trip was so enjoyable we will be going back. If you want to visit Dorset with friends or family (up to 10/11) I would highly recommend the Bilshay Farmhouse on the Symonndsbury Estate.

It is just wonderful.

“Amazing property in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Great property, very traditional with a modern twist.
The view is to die for and the service brilliant.
I booked this for a Hen weekend with 9 ladies and everyone was impressed. I just couldn't believe the location and to be able to sit in the hot tub and enjoy it was just perfect. When split between 9 of you the price is very reasonable. Enjoy!!!!!!!

“Beautiful Accomodation in and idyllic rural setting”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I stayed here with my husband and children together with our parents and a few other extended family from Christmas Eve until the 27th of December. The pictures on the webiste looked amazing andf reality did not disappoint. The equipment for cooking was just like home from home (if not better) of course this was vital to be able to cook Christmas dinner. It was so clean and the setting was lovely too, very rural yet very close proximity to the town centre of Bridport. Would definatley visit again infact would love it to be a second home to escape to.
