This was our first visit to Fenn Lodge and we were not disappointed. Having read the excellent reviews we can only endorse what others have said about the friendly hosts, Sandy and Bruce, the comfortable rooms and the wide choice of well-cooked breakfasts which were easily equal to, and in many cases better than, larger hotels. The homemade caraway and... More

Fenn Lodge is a great B+B. The location is wonderful within easy walking distance, through the 'Chine'. to the beautiful beach and promenade which takes you to Bournemouth in one direction and to Poole in the other. My single room was extremely comfortable and included tea and coffee making facilities with a fridge on the landing for guest's wine or... More

This was our third visit and each time we've found it continues to maintain its high standards. Sandy and Bruce are perfect hosts and have thought of absolutely everything to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Although we only stay for one night on each visit our hosts couldn't be more friendly and welcoming, starting with tea... More

We have just had our fourth stay at Fenn lodge and again were not disappointed. We arrived to a lovely cream tea and our room was so nicely decorated and a small welcome back touch made by Sandy makes you feel like old friends. There is a good choice of well cooked breakfast and we love the fresh made bread.... More

We only stayed for one night this time, but will definitely be coming again! Such a lovely welcome from Sandy, the room was superbly presented and spotlessly clean, with all the extra touches one would only expect from a five star hotel!

We have just returned from a short break and stayed with Sandy and Bruce in their comfortable B&B. Spotlessly clean and attention to detail and warm welcome made our stay special.The location is great, within walking distance to the sea. my granddaughter really enjoyed the special attention she got from Sandy. We didn't catch the badgers but maybe next time.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the delightful Fenn Lodge, a much needed break and what a treat! An immediate warm welcome from the lovely Sandy who immediately offered us a cream tea in the lounge. Our spotless room overlooked the garden and during the evenings we watched foxes and badgers feeding. The location of the B&B is... More
