Stayed for a week in Aug. Jasmine Lodge has combined living, dining and kitchen area plus bathroom and 2 bedrooms. All very clean and comfortable, well equipped with kitchen utensils, pots and pans etc. It is great for those wanting a quiet family holiday. Everyone was very friendly both staff and other guests. Pools were great - no slides or flumes etc. but available from about 8am (I think) - 7pm. Outdoor pool is heated too.
Lodges are set in circles with a grass area in the middle, one area has putting holes and a small playground. Main reception has a few toys and games which can be borrowed too.
There is no on-site shop and no entertainment so if you want kids clubs daytime entertainment laid on and evening shows or a bar it won't be for you. But for those who want a quiet, relaxing time, put the kids to bed and do a bit of reading etc. it's fab.
Unfortunately the Wi-Fi could not be picked up in the lodge but you can go to the conservatory by reception to login when needed. This did mean it was not so convenient for planning days out but there were plenty of leaflets in the lodge and in reception.
We self catered (you would need to drive to eat out), did shopping for the week in Tesco and then just topped up with milk etc. in Rousden and that worked well for us.
Charmouth beach is more gritty than sandy but the guided fossil hunt walk was great. Lyme Regis is very pretty and only a few miles away.
We loved it.
Unrestricted access to warm pools and the friendliness of everyone
