Bonhays is a secluded holiday retreat in the in the village of Whitchurch Canonicorum set in the West Dorset hills.

The village has a rich history as a pilgrimage site and the area is ideal for walkers as it is criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways to the surrounding forest, farmland and beaches. The famous fossil beach at Charmouth is less than 10 minutes away by car and Lyme Regis is within 5 miles.

The accommodation includes an attractive stable conversion (Bonhays House) sleeping up to eleven as well as two smaller cottages for up to four guests each. The properties are not booked separately, so each group enjoys the privacy of having the place to themselves. With an indoor swimming pool and wide open spaces, Bonhays is ideal for larger groups of friends or family looking to holiday together in a tranquil setting near the coast.

The main house offers a conservatory dining area where everyone can eat together if they wish, and the two smaller cottages include kitchens and dining facilities for those who may prefer some privacy. In total, the accommodation comfortably sleeps up to nineteen, with a cot available for children under 2.

Bonhays has been promoting a more innovative ecological approach for over a decade, with a bird-friendly and non-polluting willow bed waste water system, straw bale construction and other unique features.

Last minute offers may also be available for smaller groups.
