Stayed for four nights in June in bright airy triple room which was very clean and well presented. In a perfect location that is within easy reach of local attractions and local bus services including the X53 Jurassic Coaster. Several pubs serving good food close by. A really Exellent cooked breakfast is served in the conservatory and nothing is too... More

This is a great place to stay for a weekend break. Our room was on the ground floor at the back and was quite small with no view so not the best room in the house. However, it was clean and comfortable with some nice thoughtful extras. Breakfast is served in a lovely conservatory by a nice smiley young woman... More

Rooms clean and light and airy, wonderful locally produced food, kippers for breakfast great! Easy, almost flat, walk to beach and village and only 3 miles from Lyme Regis, frequent bus to Lyme. Relaxed atmosphere, staff informative and helpful without being smothering. We all enjoyed our short stay, needed a place near the sea but without the hills of Lyme... More

Single room was fairly large very clean good quality bedding and towels in the bathroom which has a large shower. Breakfast was that large I had to lie down afterwards. I had my dog with me and she was made very welcome. Overall the experience was excellent.

We stayed her last week end for a 2 night stay. It is the perfect place to stay to explore the area. A short walk to the beach on the Jurassic coast. Short drive to Lyme Regis etc. The accommodation was spotless and the breakfast was perfect, plenty of choice and all fresh and presented well too. We would definitely... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 girls aged 3 and 7 for a weekend break. Location was perfect, room was perfect and breakfast was perfect. We had a fantastic family room with separate room for the girls off the main bedroom. Broad church filming location is only a few minutes away at Westbay. We loved it so... More

We chose to stay in Charmouth because we thought it would be quieter and not as difficult to drive in as nearby Lyme Regis, yet still be convenient to the spectacular sights of the Jurassic Coast. We were right, and Hensleigh House was the perfect choice. The B&B was quiet and comfortable, and just a few short blocks to the... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and that Hensleigh House contributed in a small way to your enjoyment of your trip to the UK. The West Dorset coast is a beautiful area, and as you say the advantage of our village location is the peace and quiet whilst still being within easy walk of the beach... More

Although in a great location, almost midway between the beach and the main road, this was a lovely quiet, clean place to stay. Plenty of space for parking, with a lovely bright dining room made you feel happy straight away. The room was lovely and clean, with cracking en-suite, free view TV and good wifi signal. Breakfast was scrummy, with... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015. This was our first time staying in a B&B and I must admit I was feeling quite uncomfortable about staying in "someone's house" and would have much rather booked a hotel, but this was a cheap option in a good location. Well I am so glad we stayed... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit the review which is very helpful. In the UK we don't have a clear description for properties larger than the traditional 2-3 room B&B, but smaller than a full hotel. It can therefore be unnerving for new guests, and we are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Hensleigh House. We strive... More

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Whenever we are aware of specific requirements we do everything we can to try and assist, and as with yourself it is so much easier to discuss these and work together, rather than only hearing of them when people check out.
