Just returned from a very relaxing and peaceful weekend at this bed and breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised as we both felt the website did not do the house justice or the setting which is definately it's main selling point. If you want to spend a few days feeling like you are really away from the city this place is definately recommended. We went for a long coastal walk to Lulworthcove and had a lovely lunch there before heading back to relax at the house and enjoy the views from our room.
The hosts provided a lovely breakfast and gave us guidance on suitable walks and place to visit. Hope to go back in warmer weather.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Overlooking the sea between Lulworth Cove and Weymouth is a house called Marren. Surrounded by National Trust land, Marren is set in a large garden on a steep slope with spectacular views of Portland and Weymouth Bay. The only sounds are of waves breaking and the cries of buzzards. We are seven minutes from a secluded beach to the east of Ringstead and five minutes from the Dorset Coastal Path which leads to Bats Head, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. It is the perfect place for walking, seeing wildlife and breathtaking views of sea and cliffs. We have two en-suite double bedrooms. The larger one has its own entrance from the garden and a super kingsize bed; the smaller one has a spectacular view of Portland and Weymouth Bay through french windows from the bed. We can recommend a selection of excellent restaurants and pubs for eating out, plus help with local maps and directions for walks. ... more less
