On my way home after a 3 night stay at Hensleigh House. Very welcoming and in perfect location a few minutes down the road from the beach and a few minutes up the road to the village shops. Stayed in the single room, comfortable bed that was made every day and wonderful cooked breakfast 🍳 Only niggles were the thin... More

Currently on last night of a 3 night stay over the bank holiday weekend. We are here with our 2 children (3 & 6) staying in room 7. To call it a room is a massive understatement, it is more like a suite. 2 bedrooms ( 1 double and a twin) large hallway, and a large modern bathroom. Plenty of... More

It is great to hear that you had an enjoyable stay in Charmouth, that you enjoyed fossiling on the beach, and that the rooms allowed you to relax afterwards. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind Regards Jim & Dawn More

I stayed in Room 3, which has a great shower, nice size room , 2 windows. The location is WONDERFUL, about a 2 minute walk to Charmouth beach. I particularly like the parking (!) as there is plenty of it and its so convienient for the beach. We didn't have a cream tea but they looked amazing.......... Breakfast is served... More

We stayed in Hensleigh House for 4 nights in August, very comfortable room with separate adjoined room for our two children. Fantastic breakfast. Lovely helpful staff. Very close to the beautiful beach, a short 5 minute walk. Close to restaurants and bus stop. We would definitely stay again and recommend it. Dawn was very kind and helpful and provided us... More

We stayed 4 nights and were made to feel very welcome. We had two rooms for family of 4, they were next to each other so ideal. Delicious breakfast, poached eggs were spot on and everything you could think of was supplied. Short walk to delightful beach and excellent fossil hunting, with wardens on the beach to help you to...

We thought the accommodation was good to average. Our twin beds were good, but party wall noise not so good, and the shower poor. The next door bedroom had a very creaky bed or headboard which disturbed us,and probably the occupants of the bed. There is much potential, but presentation of common areas needs attention. We enjoyed the breakfasts.

Jim G, Owner at Hensleigh House, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. We try very hard (via our personal welcome and the room information pack) to encourage guests to let us know of any problems so they can be addressed, and do not affect your stay. Tightening a headboard is a two minute job if we are advised, and as you will see from other reviews we... More

Just had a very pleasant 2 night stay at Hensleigh House with Dawn & Jim. We had a lovely family suite with a separate room for our teenage son (which I'm sure he appreciated as much as we did!). The rooms were large and airy and newly refurbished. Everyone was friendly and welcoming making a relaxing break. A lovely location... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and liked the family suite (one of two available). Families often like to have the children in a separate room (allowing everyone to relax), but within the same suite so not separated by a public area. Great to hear that you enjoyed the breakfasts and cream tea, and we hope to... More

Our Holiday at Hensleigh House was just amazing. It was not the most luxurious place, however, the staff and the entire experience was just wonderful. We travelled 2 adults and 3 kids - and we were all so welcome. They really go out of their way to ensure that their guests enjoy themselves and feel at home at Hensleigh House.... More

Great location and everything would have been perfect, had the weather been a little better! Our room was great - very spacious - felt like a suite! Beds were so comfortable and a real plus for me!
