A lovely break with two little granddaughters. Room 7 (which was a suite of rooms) was comfortable, very clean and well appointed. The breakfasts were wonderful and staff were helpful and friendly. It was just a short walk to the beach and the village. Will certainly visit again.

Booked two nights online, by chance while planning to stay somewhere else! What a lucky find. Very comfy room, excellent breakfasts, friendly and helpful hosts and great location close to the beach. We had the king size bed and it was supremely comfortable. Would definitely go back.

Comfortable, well-appointed room, excellent breakfast, sunny breakfast/lounge room, and very friendly and helpful hosts, who have all the documentation ready to help you with walking the coastal paths or targetting a suitable place for dinner (including maps, bus timetables,etc.). We had a lovely break here.

We stayed three nights at the Hensleigh House B&B in Charmouth. We were warmly welcomed; each morning served a very good breakfast; each day Jim had an hourly weather forecast and tides printed for us; the room was very clean and comfortable. He also gave us good recommendations for places for dinner. The location is close to the beach. We... More

Great big flat screen tv with... More

We came to Charmouth to see the fossil beach and saw Hensleigh House on the way to the beach. Great location, friendly, clean, comfortable, easy parking, excellent breakfast, close to everything. It doesn't get better than this, it's a shame we couldn't stay longer.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your short stay with us, and we are pleased that we could provide a room at short notice. We hope that the rest of your visit to the UK is as enjoyable, and we hope that our great British weather is giving you a chance to explore the countryside and beaches. Kind... More

We stayed for 3 nights and recommend every aspect of this lovely Band B. The staff and owners are all friendly and cheerful (it was lovely to be greeted by name on arrival) - clearly keen to make their B and B the best it can be. Breakfast was excellent, generous and offered a great variety of choices. (Eggs cooked... More

We are glad that your family enjoyed the facilities and the family room. As you say we are in a very quiet location where there is really no difference which side of the building your room looks out on as it is so quiet at night. We are sorry that we were unable to provide sunshine throughout your stay, as... More

We only stayed one night at Hensleigh House but were made to feel most welcome nonetheless. Our room (no3) was perfect as was the en suite. The double aspect from the room made it very bright and cheerful and an added bonus was being able to watch the seagulls nesting on the roof of a nearby property! Everything was spotless;... More

Thank you for your comments, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, as relaxing breaks are exactly what we are about! The seagulls are still nesting and taking it in turns to sit on the eggs, and for some guests it has become an alternative form of entertainment to the television. Also thanks for the feedback you gave... More

Easy to find, excellent location, comfortable. Very child friendly, our 2 bedroom suite was beautiful. A TV in each room, so kids were entertained when in. But an easy walk to the village and beach. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of choice. Can not fault B&B. Only problem was finding somewhere to eat Sunday evening of a May bank holiday weekend.... More

Central to village facilities and beach without having to use a car. Breakfast in the conservatory. Jim and Dawn and staff friendly and helpful. A good family Guest House. Unable to dry towels for re-use to be eco-friendly.

Thank you for the comments and feedback, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and our village. Whist most rooms have heated towel rails I am afraid it is an on-going project getting them installed and connected in the remaining rooms. Hopefully this will be completed soon! Kind Regards Jim & Dawn More
