Cleverly converted from an ancient cart shed/log barn and mid-century milking parlour, Hoods provides bright, contemporary, light filled holiday accommodation close to Bridport and the Jurassic Coast.
With wonderful far reaching views across the Marshwood Vale including local landmark Colmer’s Hill, you can experience some of the best uninterrupted views of Dorset.
Hoods is a place to gather, whether you are seeking a bolthole to gather your thoughts whilst you relax and recharge, or as a place to gather with friends and cook and share long lazy meals and chats around the table or gazing across the landscape.
Sitting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at Kingsland Farm, there is plenty of wildlife to experience and enjoy when relaxing on the large decked terrace, be it the tawny owls, pheasants, roe deer, badgers or numerous other local species.
Outside you’ll discover a fabulous, enclosed garden and large decked terrace with panoramic views to the rear and side of the property with garden furniture and a fire pit.
Parking for up to four cars.
The property has underfloor heating throughout.
Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge). Please do not allow dogs on the beds or furniture. A dog crate for up to a large Labrador sized dog is available upon request.
There are facilities for washing your dog in a barn near the parking area – there is a dedicated dog bath with hose and towels are supplied.
Travel cot and high chair available on request – please bring your own cot linens.
A wonderful long weekend spent at the beautiful Hoods! Thanks for a great stay and all the tasty local produce... we're off home via Holy Cow! We shall be back!
Review by The H Family
We booked the house for a weekend away before our friends' baby arrives. It was perfectly relaxing, incredibly comfortable and equipped. The scenery is beautiful and it's just what we were looking for. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Venture out to the pretty bustling market town of Bridport where on Wednesdays and Saturdays the two main roads are packed with antique, flower and food stalls. Bridport is also the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site and well worth exploring.
Furleigh Estates is only a ten minute walk from Hoods where great tours of the vineyard are on offer. Towards the nearby village of Symondsbury you will find walks around the estate ending up at the top of Colmers Hill, a famous landmark. On your way back, pop into the Symondsbury Kitchen cafe for refreshments.
The nearby town of Beaminster offering local shops, cafes and pubs is approximately six miles away. A visit to West Bay is a must – after crabbing off the harbour, grab fish and chips from one of the many kiosks and head to the beach for a picnic. All year round dog walking at Cogden, a National Trust beach, is the perfect place to clear the cobwebs.
