Why stay here

There’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, such as animal centres and museums to explore, some with a nod to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

With the South West Coastal Path only seven miles away, you can travel this famous coastline to your heart’s content. Visit nearby Weymouth and Poole for a seaside adventure.

Family days out

There are plenty of places around Dorchester to explore with the family – learn about Monkey Life and the Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, explore the world’s best collection of tanks at the Tank Musuem in Bovington, or discover Dorset’s Jurassic heritage at the Dinosaur Museum.

Nestled in 26 acres of Dorset’s glorious countryside lies Sculptures by the Lake - an oasis for art lovers and collectors alike - created by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon.
