Enjoy a quaint Dorset stay at a 700-year-old house filled with history and charm – includes breakfast, three-course dinner, a spa discount and a bottle of wine upon departure
- You can’t get more quaint than this: set in a 700-year-old house, in a darling Dorset market town home to characterful shops, restaurants and a 14th-century church, The Ollerod has witnessed generations of families pass through its doors (it has even been a home for priests), and has garnered a series of awards.
- With centuries-old inglenook fireplaces, wooden beams and candles ensconced upon the old hamstone walls, the house retains its charm and character and yet has everything you might need to survive modern life, including a two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant serving up a whole host of tasty fare.
- Deep in Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, you'll also be pleased to find the Jurassic Coast on your doorstep. After spending a day with the westerly wind whipping through your hair, you'll relish retiring to your individually styled bedroom to sleep soundly on a plush bed, surrounded by plentiful modern conveniences.
