Welcome to The White House

The White House from The Street    The Hotel at dusk    The reception desk

The White House is our beautiful  Regency Villa in the centre of the coastal village of Charmouth. Surrounded on three sides by the glorious West Dorset countryside and the sea to the south, we are just a five minute walk to the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic coastline and its famous fossil beach. Just two miles from Lyme Regis, five miles from River Cottage and six miles along the coast from West Bay (aka Broadchurch), there are a wealth of places to discover and explore in this area of outstanding natural beauty. See our Local Attractions page for many more.

You can book one of our four large luxurious rooms either  online through our secure booking system, or if you prefer, call us direct on 01297 560 411.

We have a private car park to the rear of the hotel through an entrance which can be a little narrow for the largest cars. There is also a private parking space at the front and free on street parking on the road right opposite the hotel.

Alternatively email us via our contact form and we will be happy to assist you with any enquiries you may have.

Latest News

For the fourth year running we have been awarded GOLD in the annual Taste of the West Awards in both restaurant and B&B categories. We are absolutely delighted with this. We really are committed to providing the highest standards of comfort and service we can at The White House so to receive recognition like this from such a well respected organisation as Taste of the West is really fantastic for both Liz and I and our team Hannah and Tracey.

We are really pleased to add these to the Dorset Tourism and South West Tourism awards that we picked up in 2014.

Taste of the West Country, Cook Book

We were paired with David and Karen at Capreolus Fine Foods based at Rampisham near Bridport to produce a recipe for a really rather lovely new cook book 'A Taste of the West Country' which is on sale now priced £16.99 + p&p. We managed to get three of our recipes featured (there is also a photo of me but don't let that put you off!) Call us on 01297 560411 if you would like to purchase a copy.
