Set amid rolling hills and within walking distance of the stunning Jurassic coast, Monkton Wyld Court has hosted events for adults, children and families for 70 years. Visitors return time and time again - often just to relax as B&B guests.
Our main building is a charming, grade II listed house, built in 1848 as an early Victorian example of Gothic architecture inspired by Pugin.
The house accommodates up to 35 visitors in 2 - 6 bedded rooms; the communal areas are heated by wood-burning stoves, have period features and wonderful views.
There is a hall with stage and sprung dance floor, a beautiful sitting room with grand piano, a healing room with massage table, a well-stocked library plus facilities for making music, pottery and other arts and crafts.
Outside, we have terraced lawns, a small wood, an orchard, fields leading down to a stream and a stunning walled vegetable garden.
Our water comes from our own wells and is processed through our reedbed system. We also use solar energy.
The food at Monkton Wyld Court is vegetarian and mainly organically grown, sourced from our own farm and kitchen garden, or local suppliers wherever possible.
We cater for vegan, wheat and dairy-free diets by arrangement. We also use eco-friendly and fair trade products.
Ethical, environmental and working towards sustainability.
