We just returned refreshed and replenished from a beautiful weekend at Marren.
Arriving on a dark and rainy night at the beautiful, tastefully decorated house Peter and Wendy have created, felt a bit like stepping into paradise. We immediately felt at home in this house where beautiful antiques are combined with the clear, clean and somehow Scandinavian decor we found in our bedroom. Wherever we looked, we could sense how much loving attention to detail has gone into creating this unique B&B. Our room was extremely comfortable with a stunning sea view and our en-suite bathroom, lovingly decorated with pretty soap dishes, filled with pebble stones to name just one little detail, featured a bath tub large enough to accommodate my rather tall husband for a comforting soak after a long walk along the coastal path. In the mornings we woke to the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the house and the breakfast was wholesome and delicious. Peter and Wendy were wonderful hosts and supplied us with a number of great ideas where to find the best pubs and which walks to take. The location is quiet and peaceful with beautiful walks literally starting on the doorstep. We will certainly return and highly recommend this very special B&B.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Overlooking the sea between Lulworth Cove and Weymouth is a house called Marren. Surrounded by National Trust land, Marren is set in a large garden on a steep slope with spectacular views of Portland and Weymouth Bay. The only sounds are of waves breaking and the cries of buzzards. We are seven minutes from a secluded beach to the east of Ringstead and five minutes from the Dorset Coastal Path which leads to Bats Head, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. It is the perfect place for walking, seeing wildlife and breathtaking views of sea and cliffs. We have two en-suite double bedrooms. The larger one has its own entrance from the garden and a super kingsize bed; the smaller one has a spectacular view of Portland and Weymouth Bay through french windows from the bed. We can recommend a selection of excellent restaurants and pubs for eating out, plus help with local maps and directions for walks. ... more less
