“Fantastic stay in a beautiful village”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at the Old Post Office for a friends wedding. A group of friends with a couple of babies, the accommodation was perfect for us - spacious and clean, child friendly and very comfortable. The facilities were brilliant and the lovely welcome hamper with local treats was very much appreciated. We would love to visit again and would definitely stay here, or at one of the other holiday lets in the village again.

“Fabulous Place”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My sister had her wedding reception in the Tithe Barn so we booked two cottages on the Symondsbury Estate. Me my husband and daughter shared The Old Post Office. The cottage is amazing ...furnishings and decor are at a very high standard. We had everything we needed and more to make the morning of the wedding go without a hitch. They thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. They supplied us with a hamper when we arrived consisting of bread, milk, eggs, cereal and coffee. I would highly recommend this cottage...it is fab

“Believe the hype!!”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My girlfriend and I booked this stunning little cottage for a last-minute (booked on the day we travelled) getaway to Dorset. We booked it purely on the great reviews it had on Trip Advisor - It lived up to, and exceeded all our expectations... Basically, believe the hype!! We have two small dogs and needed somewhere dog friendly so the fact that dogs are allowed here was an added bonus. Upon arrival after a 4 hour journey we were greeted with a little hamper of goodies on the kitchen side - A little touch that meant a lot after such a long journey!! We stayed for four nights and had the little log fire on in the lounge every evening - The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole house was spotless from top to bottom. Just a 5 minute drive to Bridport centre and also the stunning beach and cliffs at West Bay, it couldn't be more conveniently located. Any fans of the amazing BBC drama series Broadchurch will get a nice little surprise walking onto the beach at West Bay, as it was the main filming location for the series - As fans of the show ourselves we couldn't have been happier. Each day we ventured out to visit different beaches within a 20-minute drive, only to discover that the best beach by far was right under our noses at West Bay.
In a nutshell, everything about the cottage - it's location, cleanliness, character and charm will be bringing us back in the near future without a doubt.
Not one to usually leave reviews, this time I've felt compelled to express how great The Old Post Office at Symondsbury really is... Book with confidence - You WON'T be disappointed!!

Lovely cottage,,spotlessly clean, fabulous location. Had a really good relaxing time here. Lots to see locally with plenty of good walks. Excellent pub nearby with very good menu-plenty of nice vegetarian choices.(Need a torch after dark to get back to cottage!!)
Will definitely go back.

“Beautiful cottage in idyllic Dorset village setting”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We thoroughly enjoyed our first ever visit to Dorset. The cottage was maintained to a high standard and had ample space inside and out. It was perfect for our small dog with a safe and secure garden, yet showed no evidence that dogs had ever stayed there before. The village was s friendly and great access to all the local attractions. Our visiting sons loved the table tennis and games room. We would certainly come back here to this or any of the other properties owned by Symondsbury Estate Holidays nearby.
