Can't rate these lovely new apartments highly enough. The owners Sandy and Bruce have spared no expense or cut corners with the decor, furniture and bathrooms, with little personal touches thrown in. The best accommodation we have experienced in our many years visiting Westbourne. A great location on the chine and walking distance to town. A great find and we... More

We had a fabulous 4 days staying in Flat 6 at Fenn Lodge. The location is perfect for strolling down to the beach at Alum Chine or heading out to explore the surrounding area including a day out at Swanage Railway. The apartments have been beautifully renovated to a really high standard and have all the facilities you need as... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Fenn Lodge. The apartment was fantastic..clean and with all that you could need. We had a lovely large terrace from which we could observe the nightly visits from the badgers. We had a lovely walk through the Chine to the beach so the position was perfect for us. Sandy and Bruce were impeccable hosts.

Thank you both so very much for the very encouraging revue and we were delighted that you braved the change over from B & B to self catering flats. I was also pleased that you thought it afforded you more comfortable living than having just a bedroom with fixed hours for meals,cleaning routines etc. We look forward to many more... More

On our round trip through the south of England Fenn Lodge was indeed our most favorite stay: because of the deep felt friendlyness of our host Sandy, because of the rooms being so beautifully equipped, because the lodge is situated next to one of the most beautiful landscapes near the seaside, because of a yummy breakfast - and because of...

I stayed at Fenn Lodge for one night with my 16 year old son Harry on our weekend in Poole Harbour doing some wind surfing. We both found the place and the friendly hospitality from Sandy and Bruce exceptional. The breakfast was very good. I have stayed in several B&B's in this area and the general standard is high, but... More
