Exclusive use or shared.

Monkton Wyld Court is a large mid-19th century gothic mansion and former rectory, currrently run as a rural guest house and education centre. It is south-facing, overlooking a valley of woods and pasture, some 4 miles from Lyme Regis and the Dorset coast, famous for its fossils.

We offer whole house bookings for 36 for conferences, training courses, parties, weddings and other events with friends and family, as well as a wood-construction lodge sleeping up to 7, and a small campsite with naturally built facilities such as a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, compost loos and outdoor shower and basin with running hot water.

There's a stylish function room, a comfortable sitting room, a library, and a 13m x 7m assembly/concert hall, The Pine Hall, with good acoustics and a piano, capable of accommodating up to 100 people. A marquee is available on request. The Pine Hall is available as a separate hire and ideal for family parties. Music must be off by 11pm.

We can provide meals in our capacious dining room, or you can hire self-catering facilities. Our cuisine is vegetarian, mostly organic and much of the food we supply comes from our walled garden and Jersey cows. There is also an outdoor kitchen, where you can barbecue our home reared pork sausages, or commission the use of our wood-fired pizza oven.

The Wyld Lodge is a self-contained wooden property, fully equipped, with its own washroom, shower, compost toilet, wood burner and kitchen facilities. There is a ground floor double bedroom, a second floor room with 3 singles perfect for children and a large pull-out sofa bed that can sleep 2.

Other facilities include table-tennis; a flat lawn suitable for badmintion, volleyball, croquet; a licensed bar in a glorified garden shed; a fabulous swing dangling from a branch of the largest Monterey pine in southern England; and a kid’s playground in a rhododendron thicket.

Monkton Wyld Court is a owned by a charitable trust, and managed by a workers’ co-operative. Our approach is relaxed, friendly and somewhat alternative, rather than up-market.
