Check-out Time:

The Old Rectory, Symondsbury and it is reputed to be one of the largest rectories in England with the main part of the house being built in 1730 whilst the two wings were added in 1814. Over the years visitors here include Thomas Hardy, William Barnes, and more recently Mick Jagger, Jack Straw, and Eric Clapton! It is situated at the base of Colmers Hill which is an iconic landmark in West Dorset sitting 417 feet above sea level with breath-taking panoramic views from the top. As you would expect, we love to use the natural environment for our training and the ascent up the hill serves as a fantastic fitness tool!

A stream also wanders through the village of Symondsbury, coming from a spring that is believed still to have healing properties. In the medieval age, people from miles around came to bathe their eyes, which were then allegedly healed. There is also an old road from the sea through the village, that used to take pilgrims to the shrine of St Wite at Whitchurch Canonicorum.
