Monkton Wyld Court is a large mid-19th century gothic mansion and former rectory, currently 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 conferences, training courses, parties, weddings and other events with friends and family, as well as a timber lodge sleeping up to 7, and a small campsite with naturally built facilities such as a fully equipped outdoor kitchen 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. The Pine Hall is available as a separate hire and ideal for family parties.

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 use our barbecue or commission the use of our wood-fired pizza oven.

Other facilities include table-tennis; a flat lawn suitable for badminton, volleyball, croquet; a fabulous swing dangling from a branch of the largest Monterey pine in southern England; and a children's playground in a rhododendron thicket.

Monkton Wyld Court is a owned by a charitable trust. Our approach is relaxed and friendly.
