Elegance, style and comfort in the beauty of Dorset’s countryside

River Valley House

Live in harmony with the country…

…with style and panache

line

River Valley House is an exceptional property offering a magical stay in a beautiful setting. This truly remarkable house really is the place for a wonderful break for all the family. There are things to do for kids of all ages – from 5 to 95! With accommodation for 20 people, the house is set in 14 amazing acres in the beautiful Dorset countryside.

The house itself has a wonderfully elegant living room, rich with bespoke fabrics and wallpaper, two impressive fireplaces and set out to facilitate convivial conversation.  It also leads out to a large flagstone terrace with a outside seating and a fire pit.  For quiet relaxation, there’s a a study that looks out over the grounds and another warm and cosy fireplace. The kitchen is light and airy with a great family dining area. As well as the elegance of the house itself there is an indoor pool, a gym, sauna and steam room, conference facilities (with a 60 inch screen that makes a great home cinema!)

There’s even an organic garden where guests are welcome to pick their own fruit and vegetables.  We have a variety of catering options that we can discuss with you.

3 night break from £4,200

Based on a weekend break. That’s £83 per person per night for a group of 20.

Accommodates 20 people

River valley setting

Nestled in a beautiful valley 2 miles outside the Dorset seaside town of Bridport.

Wonderful bedrooms

Comfort and style combined

line

With one exception, the bedrooms all have en suite wet rooms and there is a standalone family bathroom. There are 6 bedrooms in the main house, all king or super king with one twin room. There is also an ‘apartment’ for up to 4 and a large bedroom beyond the pool can be used as a king size room or turned into a ‘dorm’ for 4 kids. Additionally, there is a super king bedroom above the barn. We can work with you to sort out the best configuration for your party.

The grounds are a paradise

Something for everyone

line

The grounds are the sort of thing kids dream about! They can camp out on the tee pee island, with its rope bridges, swings and trampolines; row the boat down to mill; enjoy swimming in the natural pond (when it’s too nice to swim indoors); play croquet, badminton or table tennis; or simply relax by the river where you might spot an otter or do some fishing or, just enjoy the views. There is also an organic garden, a pizza oven and free range chickens – feel free to gather the eggs!

Explore the wonderful Dorset Countryside…

….and the alluring Devon Coast

line

Situated just a couple of miles away from the market town of Bridport, River Valley House is perfectly placed for a true taste of Dorset. Bridport is a gateway town to the world famous Jurassic coast and prides itself on its rich mix of high quality foods and eclectic entertainment. Steeped in history, the town is a treasure trove for budding historians. It’s also something of a find for those who enjoy a good meal, with a wide range of restaurants including Indian, Thai, Mediterranean and good old English fish and chips!  There are markets twice a week – Wednesday and Saturday and a busy events calendar, It is a great area for walking or cycling as well as opportunities for shooting, canoeing and fishing. You’ll never be short of something to do!

A little further afield, River Valley House is also within easy reach of West Bay, setting for the haunting Broadchurch drama series, and the increasingly hip Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Chesil Beach; each offering fantastic foodie experiences.
