Stayed for just one night whilst visitng a relative nearby. Very nice single room, lovely bed linen and towels. Good breakfast although I didn't fully benefit as I'm weight watching :-( but the other diners' breakfasts looked very good. Very close to the beach and a short stroll to the main street where there are a few pubs and restaurants.... More

We stayed for one night due to Lyme Regis being fully booked. From the moment we arrived with our small dog we were made to feel welcome. Bedroom was warm and very clean (Personal pref would have liked a bath instead of shower) Bathroom was spotless. Breakfast next morning was terrific,extremely well presented and lots of toast. Well done to... More

A great little B&B that feels more like a small hotel. Very welcoming hosts providing a nice relaxed atmosphere in which to unwind. The breakfast was great with real flavour to the food and as it turned out all locally sourced rather than supermarket purchased. My stay was rather short but I hope to return and spend more time exploring... More

I had a lovely stay at Hensleigh House this weekend. The room was comfortable and I had a great night's sleep despite a rain storm. This was followed by a good breakfast with lots of choice. The owners were welcoming and we were able to dry our very wet clothes in front of their Aga - very needed! A short... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Hensleigh House for two nights and were incredibly happy with everything. The staff were very attentive and the breakfast was delicious! Our room had been recently decorated so there was nothing to fault! The beach is located less than 5 minutes away and we made sure to visit as much as we could over... More

I stayed in the recently redecorated Room 6 and was thoroughly impressed. Clean, modern design and enough space to store belongings without tripping over them. Very little noise in room and slept well. Staff were welcoming and provided lots of recommendations for food and activities. Short walk down to Charmouth beach with lots of fossils to find!

Located 5 minute walk from Charmouth beach, this B&B is a great location for fossil hunting. Much quieter than nearby Lyme Regis, but a great beach, and no need to use the car! Excellent breakfast, and very helpful owners (dried our soggy wellies infront of the Arga overnight!). Great base for singles, couples or familes. Only drawback is nowhere to... More

Warm welcome by owners, perfectly cooked poached eggs and comfortable bed. Useful recommendations for food such as the village fish and chip shop (hake delicious) and Hive Beach Cafe ( cakes to for). Easy to find and lovely location for fossil hunting, walking and exploring Lyme Regis.
