We stayed at Marren over Easter with our two dogs, who had their own spot in the boot room to sleep. Breakfast was amazing, particularly the home made bread! Rooms were large and comfortable, ours had its own access door to the outside which was particularly useful with the dogs. We were very well looked after, provided with tips and maps for local walks around what is a beautiful part of the UK. Excellent location for a relaxing weekend, great pub (which is dog friendly) called The Smugglers Inn, within walking distance. Highly recommend.
- 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
