Caroline was very warm and friendly. It was one of few places that would allow us to stay for one night. I was happy we decided to stay at The Hensleigh. They also allowed us to check in early and park our vehicle, which made our stay stress free. Read less

Likes:
The proximity to the beach.Towels.
Dislikes:
Breakfast too early- who wants to get up for 8.30 -am breakfast on a week end break? It is a pity B&Bs do not recognise the need for customers to get up late. Not very customer focused.

The Hensleigh is a delightful family-run guest house near the sea and world famous Jurassic cliffs of West Dorset. Charmouth is located in West Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, It is a tranquil village with 34 listed buildings and population of 1000. It lies in the valley of the River Char in the south west corner of Dorset at the heart of the Lyme Bay coastline, which is England's first natural World Heritage Site. Coastal hills rise steeply either side of the valley, with Golden Cap to the east being the highest point (617 ft) on the south coast. To the west is Black Ven, one of the largest landslips in Europe. Their geological and ecological aspects make them Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The Jurassic limestone cliffs are continually eroding, revealing fine fossils as well as creating diverse habitats for rare plants and animals. Visitors from all over the world visit Charmouth for its natural heritage, as well as schools, education groups and universities.

The Hensleigh in Charmouth is an ideal location for seeing the delights of West Dorset.

Places to visit

For lovers of gardens, Forde Abbey, Mapperton and Abbotsbury are all within easy reach. , For shoppers, Lyme Regis and the Cobb, elegant Sidmouth and Honiton's many antique shops are also close at hand.
