We have had the pleasure of staying at the delightful Fernhill Hotel near Charmouth several times and we would rate it as outstanding in every respect. There is always a warm welcome on arrival. The extensive menu choices are delicious with high quality ingredients and plenty of options for those with special dietary requirements. The rooms, some of which enjoy wonderful countryside views are superbly appointed, very relaxing and extremely comfortable. We are always looking forward to our next visit from the moment we leave.

Lovely quiet Hotel with great service and warm welcome from the hosts Bar area was great for pre dinner drinksRestaurant food was delicious and well presented but could have been more varied for vegans so we ate elsewhere a couple of nightsPersonally found the non servicing of rooms a chore and when I’m on vacation not sure I want the hassle of that as I just want to be looked after not do it myselfOnly real downside was the pool area that wasn’t that well kept and needed some serious TLC The pool described as heated was only just so myself and other guests found it very bracing to get in although many did more than me Heated to me means a tepid bath at least not a omg when you get in temperature!

A wonderful homely hotel which excels in providing comfort and privacy. Rob, Jo and staff were cheerful and courteous and went out of their way to ensure a relaxed stay.Rooms: We stayed in a luxury room which was en-suite spacious and comfortable. It overlooked the swimming pool and could have done with a net curtain or some other means of restricting the view into the roomWalkability: Moderate walk into Charmouth although the hill on the return was challenging for us septuagenariansFood & drinks: Food was outstanding, served by cheerful staff and in a large room which easily handled the number of guests. This allowed for comfortable eating on their own tables.Noteworthy details: Bus stop outside of the hotel meant easy travel into and out of Charmouth, Lyme Regis and beyond. We never used the car during our stay.

Another perfect holiday at Fernhill Hotel.We last stayed before Covid, we decided to stay for a week this time and were not disappointed. We were spoiled by the delicious food and relaxing atmosphere. Nothing is to much trouble, pure comfort and relaxation. The Hotel is in a great location to explore the coast. We hope to return again soon. Highly recommended.


We found this a really great hotel outside Lyme Regis.We stayed 2 nights, the room was very comfortable and the food was excellent. We had a dinner and breakfast in both days. They were delicious, well served and the quantities were very good.The bar was also very good and the outdoor pool was a bonus.This is a very differently managed hotel compared to many hotels these days, the customer service is second to none - a breath of fresh air and the price was reasonable.We had a lovely stay.

Me and my partner stayed for 2 nights and we found that the views were absolutely gorgeous, the hotel location was perfect with a really nice forest near by and our hosts were amazing throughout the experience. We had breakfast both days and the portion sizes were fantastic and it tasted amazing. I will definitely be coming back in the near future ?

Perfect place to relax and enjoy being looked after by wonderful hosts in an idyllic setting. Pool was a great addition. Definitely not a walk for the faint hearted in Lyme Regis and charmouth. Cabs a must, but can be slightly difficult to organise.


The team are delightful the food is great then a relaxing drink in the bar.Rooms: Very well presented and the home made biscuits a real treat.


Just back from a fantastic short stay at the Fernhill. We were greeted and made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Lovely room, tastefully kitted out. We loved the zero waste and "we won't bother you unless you need us" policies. The location is ideal for Lyme Regis and Jurassic coast. Definitely recommend a stay at the Fernhill.


Most beautiful, quiet place with great ethos to food waste whilst serving delicious meals (3 course meal set us up for the day!) Room was very clean and we were very grateful for the ceiling fan ?. Clipper teas and home baked shortbread in the room too were superb. Borrowed DVDSs from reception and every member of staff we came across was so welcoming and friendly. Cannot praise this place enough… The addition of a pool really was the cherry on the top! Only gripe for us were the pillows… Feather and either SUPER huge and hard or super flat (not because they were old/used, just what was available) Will definitely visit again… With our own pillows ?


The Fernhill hotel is a delightful hotel midway between Charmouth and Lyme Regis, close to the coastal path (which gives stunning views of the coastline). It is a very beautiful area to visit. The small hotel has a very warm and welcoming feel and Jo and Rob are great hosts. The food was excellent and they were brilliant at coping with my coeliac diet and many other dietary needs, thank you! I would really recommend this hotel. Bedroom was very comfortable and great to have a kettle, fresh milk and gluten free biscuits in the room. Superb service, very helpful staff and great attention to detail made it a very relaxing stay. And of course relaxing by and swimming in the heated outdoor pool too. We have stayed here several times over the past few years and look forward to coming back to the Fernhill hotel again next year.


We spent 3 nights in May at The Fernhill Hotel with a group of friends. Jo and Rob were great hosts and looked after us very well. Bedroom was very comfortable with lovely views. Brilliantly located for walking and golfing. Will definitely stay again, highly recommend.


Service super, welcome warm and genuine. Great attention to detail. Most helpful staff. Good food. Great location to see Lyme Regis and Charmouth. We played golf at Lyme Regis, went to Bridpirt market, walked beaches and had a great time.


This small hotel is a great find. It's in a stunning location just a couple of miles outside Lyme Regis. There is so much to do in that area and when you get back to the hotel you know you will be warmly welcomed and nothing is too much trouble. I really would recommend this hotel.
