Lancombe Country Cottages and Lodges sit in the heart of Dorset's Thomas Hardy Country. Lancombe is a unique rural site with facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool open all year and relaxing woodland walks. It's the perfect base for a short break or holiday for families, couples or groups. Alongside a selection of beautifully presented cottages and lodges, several character Shepherd's Huts are available. Dorchester is only 8 miles away and West Bay on the coast is only 12 miles away.
Children of all ages are very welcome and there are spacious grounds ideal for play and woodland walks. Explore the nearby Jurassic Coast with spectacular beaches and coastal walking. We also accept well behaved dogs by prior arrangement with bowls, a bed and plenty of dog exercising space provided.
Self-catering accommodation is situated within extensive grounds and each cottage, lodge and Shepherd's Hut is tastefully decorated to the highest standard with great holiday essentials including free WiFi, a collection of books, games and DVDs, outdoor terraces, bed linen and family facilities including cots and highchairs.
We have plenty of facilities at Lancombe with something to suit all ages. Enjoy a leisurely dip in the indoor heated pool open all year round or relax in the sauna.
