Negatives: The outlook from my room (room 5) was disappointing as i looked directly into the window of an adjacent property just a handful of metres away. I would have preferred the double room and single person supplement... More

We couldn't fault Hensleigh House for our weekend break in Charmouth. Fantastic choice at breakfast and beautifully presented. The rooms were impeccably clean, the beds were very comfortable. Dawn and Jim are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely use Hensleigh House again.

Very comfortable guest house. Very clean and cosy. Great breakfast cooked to order and like the other reviews have said, the owners are really friendly and helpful. Easy access and parking. Quiet location a few minutes walk from the beach at Charmouth and ideal for access to walks along the coast. The 2 local pubs were ok for beer and... More

This bed and breakfast was first class very friendly, lovely warm and cosy room with all amenities. Breakfast was excellent very good choices, in a very nice conservatory. Plenty car parking and the location was ideal, short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay there again.

I was in the area for work and found this little B+B to be very nice. The location was ideal, only 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes in to the village. The place was lovely and clean. The staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent.

Very friendly service from everyone. Good sized room and everything worked well. More than enough for breakfast with a good choice. Lovely location, we even managed a walk on the beach before breakfast! The breakfast room was spacious and bright.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our family room is being completely redecorated this winter and will have a new bathroom for 2016. There will also be new flooring for many of the common areas, and redecoration, so when you return it should be even better! Hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards Jim & Dawn More

We stayed for 2 nights during September, a lovely B&B. Clean room, great breakfast & nice location. A short walk to the local Charmouth beach plus a short bus ride from the top of the road into Lyme Regis. We stayed in room 6 which was a family room but only 2 of us as this was the only one...
