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

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

Plenty of room and a lovely big bathroom. Lots of lovely touches in the room with a good selection of tea/coffee and every small sachets... More

Stayed for 2 nights in June, made to feel extremely welcome on arrival and check-in very efficient. Good room, plenty of space, comfortable bed and nice linen. Breakfasts were excellent and all staff friendly and helpful, in fact the owner went out of his way to accommodate our bikes securely. Good location not far from the beach and within easy... More

We stayed 2 weeks ago for 4 nights and loved our stay. Jim and Dawn were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the smaller room but it was fine, clean and shower over the bath. The breakfasts were plentiful and very filing. We travelled around the area and went on a fossil walk from the beach...only at weekends until... More

We stayed for two nights in June. We had a good sized comfortable room on the ground floor. Everything was clean. There was a decent selection of things for breakfast including full English. The hotel was a five minute walk from the beach. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

Hensleigh House is a B&B, located very near the coast at Charmouth, a lovely quiet little village within walking distance (along the coast) of Lyme Regis. We stayed at Hensleigh House 3 days and enjoyed the warm atmosphere, the first rate breakfasts, but above all, the extremely friendly and helpful staff and owners (who, when we were stranded by a...

Thank you for the kind words, and we are glad that we were able to make up at least in part for a brief failure of the local weather! Relaxing breaks are what we are about so it is good to hear that your break in Charmouth lived up to expectations. We hope to see you again in the future.... More

We booked it at very short notice due to being badly let down by a B&B in Weymouth. We had been camping in our Van for a week and were looking for helpful pleasant staff, a nice rest, comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. Hensleigh House delivered on all fronts. There didn't do evening meals but directed us to a... More
