This luxurious and architecturally striking holiday let is situated to the west of the main mansion on the estate. Built by Sir Henry Peek, Billiard House was a later extension to the mansion house built in the 1870’s.A truly magical building crammed full of intrigue, history and stories hidden in every corner of the estate.
Holiday in a piece of history. Billiard House sits nestled against the resplendent Mansion House, at the heart of the Victorian gated village on the Rousdon Estate.
Guests enjoy access to all that the Rousdon Estate offers, with extensive grounds and access to Charton Bay a little known treasure trove on the Jurassic Coast.
Hard wood beams and stained glass windows line the high ceilings at Billiard House. The photos really do not do this gorgeous abode any justice. The open plan kitchen and living space is overflowing with vintage touches and character pieces which give a real home from home feel within this space.

Crisp white linen and super soft towels are provided here for you to ensure a sumptuous and refreshing stay with us. The house is fully equipped with everything you'll need during your time here, inclusive of kitchenware, utensils, plates & bowls etc. Perfect for a traditional family roast dinner round around the antique dining table.
Quiet, atmospheric location and beautiful surroundings
Perfect for a chilled out stay. You've got a lot of privacy and your own space whilst having Seaton and Lyme Regis 5 minutes' drive away - all in all a lovely place to unwind for a few days.
It's truly unique and offers a taste of history!
The property matches the description well, I stayed there with my mother and two children and it catered for us well, plenty of social space and grounds to explore. We didn't make it down to the beach due to the nature of its accessibility but Lyme Regis and The Cobb is just 5mins drive from the property and offered Sandy beaches, a calm and well run social distanced amenities whilst we caught the end of summer.
This place surpassed all expectations
The accommodation itself retains its unique charm, whilst being homely, cozy and incredibly comfortable. Right down to the pillows and the beds. We have just got home and had already rebooked for next year before we left. Great, attentive hosts and grounds to take your breath away.

Communication and descriptions of all on offer were perfect. We encountered a few changes of which were sorted so quickly and efficiently, we couldn't have asked for more. The accommodation was unique and an absolute dream to be in. Emilie and Josh were so helpful and the owner of the property very welcoming and then we were left to our own devices to enjoy. Perfect setting, perfect location and perfect hosts. Thank you
It is very cosy and has everything you might need in it
The house is a part of a bigger house and is sitting on 350 acres of parks, old trees and grazing sheep. It's so welcoming that i cant choose wether i loved sightseeing or coming home after a day out. Hosts left my dogs treats and a beautiful boquete of tulips on the table. I loved how those tulips caught sunlight in the morning (when we were lucky enough to have sunlight at all, this winter was all rains&clouds) Morning light bathes the whole house in hazy golden tones on sunny days, its very beautiful. I loved the branches of the old mossy tree you can see through the bedroom window. It's very quiet in the area and you can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets right from your front steps during colder months. There are loads of squirrels in the area and pheasants often can be seen on the lawn. My dogs loved watching them through the windows when the weather was overcast. Theres no light pollution so the night sky is full of stars! Its really easy to reach the breathtaking jurassic coast from the house too.
The modern updates to the Billiard House have not detracted from it's historical beauty
Five of us (two couples and a single friend) stayed here for three nights. We were torn between touring the local area or just staying "in" and enjoying the lovely grounds and serenity of the estate. After traveling for over a month in the UK and staying in numerous accommodations, this stay ended our trip with as the most beautiful of all experienced. We book places with kitchens because we like to cook about half our meals. We found the kitchen to have all the utensils and supplies we needed. Having a washer and dryer was wonderful. The beds were comfortable and the linens were luxurious. If ever we are to stay in the area again with a group of friends or family, we would certainly target the Billiard House as a prime option for accommodation.
