  • Quiet, secluded, well-maintained rural site 3.5 miles from Charmouth
  • With beauty and therapy courses, painting classes and fishing
  • High-quality facilities and recently updated

Do you rather fancy a Swedish massage, please? Or a lounge in a spa, or some beauty and therapy treatments without having to go off site...? The Dorset Hideaway might be small and rural, but for what's on offer on site, it's perfectly formed.

This is a holiday retreat for serious relaxation in the Dorset countryside: on-site beauty sessions include everything from facials, manicures and pedicures, to massages and holistic therapies, and guests can also take painting courses at the on-site art studio. There's also a modern toilet block and a dishwashing area kept clean and completely up to date – the site has already had several facelifts since opening in 2016.

The Dorset Hideaway also has a shop stocked with locally made items, firepit and chimenea hire (please ask and pay at reception for firepits when you arrive), wood and kindling for sale, DVD hire and a book exchange. A pond is on site for (non-commercial) informal fishing: please note this is catch and release only.

The setting is in farmland a few miles from the Jurassic Coast, with a glowingly good local landscape overlooking Dorset's highest coast and countryside hills. Although it's secluded and peaceful, it's only three miles from the main road for getting out and about – suitably relaxed and refreshed – around Dorset.

(Please note that while wifi is freely available in the information room, it isn't superfast fibre optic – this is what BT provide currently.)
