What we think

"It is a home from home, the staff are excellent, friendly and sooo helpful. The facilities for those with kids are amazing, we desperately needed some child free time and were very happy to leave our little one with the fantastic staff at the creche and enjoy a spa treatment and a quiet afternoon tea by the fire (bliss)."

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Dinosaurland is one of the best collections of fossils in the southwest. See creatures from 200 million years ago, as well as exotic exhibits from around the world. The museum’s collection includes real Chinese dinosaurs, a Russian cave bear and a 73kg lump of dinosaur dung!

  • On sunny days, there’s a whole coast-full of wonderful beaches to explore: nearby Weymouth is a classic seaside resort with donkey rides, deckchairs on the prom and ice cream aplenty, while there are a wealth of rocky coves and secluded beaches along the coast.

  • Weymouth Sea Life adventure park, with more than 1,000 creatures to discover, an amazing underwater tunnel to walk through, a rock pool adventure and children’s rides, offers a full day’s family entertainment! Visit the rainforest display and see if you can spot the blue poison dart frogs.

  • The famous Portland Bill lighthouse stands 153ft high at the very top of the island. Surrounded by spectacular views, it makes the perfect spot for blustery winter walks. Pop into the Trinity House visitor centre to learn more about the lighthouse keepers that once lived here.

  • Just 45 minutes away by car is the famed ‘Jurassic coast’, where ancient life can be glimpsed through layers of rock. Charmouth and Lyme Regis are great places to spend a day searching for fossil ammonites, sea creatures, or even a dinosaur.
