Can anyone help??

We're heading down to Dorset (Dorchester way) during the Easter break and would love to find a really nice place to stay for a night or two with a family room.

It can be anywhere within a 25 mile radius of Bovington - so Poole, Dorchester, Blandford Forum, Weymouth etc spring to mind but we are open to suggestions as we have the car.

Depends on your budget really, Moonfleet manor is very family friendly but expensive. summer lodge,evershot very nice but also v expensive. loads of b and bs around and plentyto do, though mostly if the weather ever improves

By the way, I tried Summer Lodge and they wanted £535 a night for a family room shock

Red Lion - Wareham - 10 minutes to Bovington - nice small town - there will be a duck race on - 10 minutes to Corfe Castle as well

Theres a lovely b&b run by very earthy friendly people and reasonably priced near the sea at Alum Chime, called Thanet house. grin

We have stayed here as a couple
but it seems to have rave reviews for families too

Thanks that's brilliant, I will try them.

blackandgold Is Fernhead quite private? Looks a good little place but I was wondering if it just felt like you were upstairs in someone's house as doesn't appear v big.

pink90 Red Lion looks great too but I read on Tripadvisor that the bells ring all night. Were you bothered?

I used to live in wareham and yes you can hear the bells. If you want a friendly b&b I know a lovely one in Winfrith Newburgh which is 2 miles from lulworth cove. It's called wynards farm and has a website.

And bovington is less than 5 miles...

Chandlers is a lovely up market B&B in Weymouth.

I recommend burngate farm in lulworth. Very family friendly and close to towns/beaches

Thank you all. Great recommendations.

I was going to recommend FiveGoMad - also known as Fanny (because there's always an Aunt fanny in Enid Blyton books)
