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

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! Rooms were clean, there was a tv in both rooms (great for the kids) and you had privacy. Breakfast was nice and flexible... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Hensleigh House. Apologies for the weather, unfortunately an element which at the moment is beyond our control (although Jim is working on that!). Hopefully on your next visit the sun will shine. Kind Regards Jim & Dawn More

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.

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.

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
