  • "Fantastic property right in the centre of Dorchester."

    Beautifully furnished, immaculately maintained, extremely well equipped and very comfortable. Great to have parking right outside the house. Lots of stairs as the house is on 4 floors but no problem to us. Really lovely and owners have made it exceptionally beautiful with their choice of furnishings. We loved it.

  • "We have just returned from a lovely week's holiday at The Town House."

    The accommodation is excellent, with a very well stocked kitchen and super comfy beds and is decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout. Its town centre location is ideal for anyone wishing to explore Dorchester and its only a short drive to Weymouth and the Jurassic Coast. The only caveat to be aware of is that the town centre location means that it can be a bit noisy due to traffic. Also, thank you very much for the lovely welcome package, filled with scrummy foods from Dorset Happy Hamper - we really enjoyed munching our way through that!

    Many thanks for your excellent feedback, and so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Town House, we think it is rather a special place. So glad that you appreciated the way it is furnished and decorated, we put a lot of time into making it comfortable and a pleasant place to stay. Yes, being right in the centre of a busy town there is inevitably some street noise, but we think the location makes up for that. So glad you enjoyed your Dorset Happy Hamper, this is a new local company, using all locally sourced products, that we have chosen to support. I hope you enjoyed your stay in Dorchester, with its central location, making it easy to visit many local places. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable accommodation in a great spot for exploring many of Dorset’s attractions."

    The kitchen was well-equipped and the WiFi was excellent. It was a bit noisy at night, situated as it is on a main street with a pub next door but that’s just one of those things and the price you pay for being centrally located. It would have been helpful to have had more information about recycling. We ended up visiting the local household waste recycling centre but it seemed that dry recyclables hadn’t been collected for months - perhaps because guests are unsure what to put out and where to put the bin. Not everyone will look it up as we did. Beware the bath - the taps are the wrong way round so hot water comes out of the tap marked cold, and vice versa!

  • "Very beautiful and comfortable property with excellent facilities."

    We thought initially that the dinner plates were too big to go into the dishwasher until we found out how to adjust the top shelf. Very well located for shops and other local services. The lampshades in the top two bedrooms may not provide enough light for some people who want to read in bed.

    Many thanks for your feedback, and so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated our property, sorry about the dishwasher issues, but glad that you managed to solve the problem. Thanks for the feedback on the upstairs lampshades, I must admit we hadn't realized this, so will look into changing them. Property Owner

  • "The property was furnished beautifully and equipped to a very high standard."

    The town centre location, with a commanding view of Dorchester's main street, was ideal for us. Would we stay there again? Yes we would.

    Thank you so much for your feedback on your stay at The Town House, we think it is a rather special property, with its views down the High Street. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and would love to see you back again. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely property."

    There were some initial issues regarding Wi-Fi but these were dealt with as promptly as was possible. Great location.

    We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Town House. As discussed with you, we apologise about the Wi-Fi, but we were let down by BT on two prior booked appointments, but pleased that we were able to sort it out during your stay. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Dorset. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of Dorchester, overlooking the county museum and historic Highstreet, is this charming dwelling, The The Town House.

Dating back over 500 years, The Town House welcomes families and friends looking for a central location in this bustling town, with easy access to pubs, restaurants, shops and attractions.

Internally, the property is set over three floors and enjoys two sought-after off-road parking spaces.

The ground floor is comprised of a small entrance lobby, while the first floor offers the first of the bedrooms, with a sumptuous king-size bed.

Continue to the second-floor to reach the main living quarter; the kitchen comes well-appointed with contemporary appliances and fittings, so you can easily prepare home-cooked dishes.

Pop open a bottle of fizz and set the dining table for a feast, before loading up the dishwasher and heading to the sitting room for a TV catchup; large bay windows overlooking the town provide a quaint sitting spot for people watching.

The top floor houses the final two bedrooms, including a king-size with en-suite shower and a twin, both neutrally presented with traditional features and furnishings to retain the age old feel of the building.

Just opposite lies the Dorset Museum, which features exhibits on the history and culture of the area, while also nearby is Maiden Castle, a hillfort that is among the largest and most complex in Europe.

Dorchester has two railway stations, and also connects with the Jurassic Coaster bus service, ideal for people who want to walk a section of the South West Coast Path.

The town is home to a selection of pubs, restaurants and takeaways, so there’s plenty of choice when you don’t feel like cooking.

Take off to the seaside town of Weymouth, offering a number of attractions, including the SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth, Weymouth Harbour and Sandworld Weymouth.

Enjoying a central position in the county town of Dorset, The Town House promises a holiday full of interest and adventure.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the 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 hillfort 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!
