    “Great place to stay plenty of room, everything and more provided.”

    this is one of the best places we have stayed in great location down a lane yet near to beaches and places to visit. can not understand why it is not booked out more.

About the location


Dorchester 1.5 miles.

The attractive scattered community of Charminster is set in the valley of the River Cerne, surrounded by glorious, unspoilt countryside. It is served by a shop and pub, yet just one and a half miles away is the bustling market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hill fort in England, or visit the County Museum, which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
