I love staying here and have been fortunate to stay here across the last 30+ years. Although the property is now owned by someone different and more recently is rented out through Wyke Dorset Cottages, I think this has been a great improvement and makes it even better to stay here. I loved being able to introduce my elderly mother (downstairs bedroom with toilet and wet room perfect for a disabled guest) and my 3 teenage children to somewhere I have wonderful memories of staying. It felt like our home for the week not just a holiday rental. It is so well located for driving further afield along the Jurasic Coast and also walking to the shops and beach. Can recommend it highly to any groups, families or friends that want to visit this part of the world.

Mrs Phoebe M,

Bell Haven is a quirky property. It has a lot of charm and character. The younger members of our family called it a fun house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It gave us some very special memories. No real problems with the pub opposite or the parking situation.
