Hensleigh House is a family-run guest house 300 metres from the famous Jurassic beach at Charmouth, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Charmouth village centre is just a 3 minute walk, and the historic town of Lyme Regis 2 miles away. The 8 comfortable rooms have flat screen televisions, en-suite bathrooms, free toiletries, hairdryers, and tea and coffee making facilities. Free WiFi is available throughout. A hearty English breakfast prepared with local fresh produce is served in the delightful conservatory, with cereals, fruit, fish and vegetarian options also available. Hensleigh House provides free parking. Hensleigh House is ideal for those that want a quiet, relaxing break, close to village amenities, and with a friendly informal, home from home, atmosphere. Two bedroom family suites are available when booked direct.
