The White House is a beautiful four bedroomed Regency property in the centre of the coastal village of Charmouth, surrounded by the glorious West Dorset countryside, just a five minute walk to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline.
In the winter of 2013 we refurbished each of our four rooms to the highest standards. Our latest AA inspection in spring of 2013 awarded us an AA Four Star Gold rating, which puts us in the top ten percent in this category. We were also given AA Awards for our breakfasts and dinners. In October 2013 we were finalists in the Dorset Tourism Awards winning a Bronze award.
Liz and I met whilst working for P&O Cruises aboard the MV 'Sea Princess' in the 1990s and upon leaving the ships, we harboured an ambition to buy our own hotel. We achieved this in 2001 when we bought the White House. Tracey and Hannah have been part of our team for more than 8 years and now our children Mollie and Tom are helping (sometimes willingly) in the kitchen, restaurant and bedrooms at weekends.
I prepare all the food from fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, often from our own garden and we have won many awards from Taste of the West over the last 13 years, the most recent being GOLD for the B&B and Restaurant categories in 2013.
Don't forget, you can book the whole hotel for exclusive use with up to 12 friends and family for a unique house party. We will tailor a two or three day break specifically for you. Call us for more details on 01297 560411.
