The Dower House Hotel was originally built in 1880 for the dowager of the Rousdon estate and was subsequently used as both a rectory and a headmaster's house. The house is now a 10 bedroom boutique hotel and is ideal for visiting Lyme Regis in Dorset and the East Devon coastal resorts of Beer and Sidmouth.
The hotel has been refurbished to a high standard including the installation of renewable energy generation through its Biomass boiler and solar PV system making it a low carbon usage hotel.
The 10 hotel bedrooms have been refurbished to a high standard with luxury facilities and period features. 2 rooms can be set up with twin beds and 3 rooms have sofa beds for use by additional guests if required. All rooms have high quality en suites together with flat screen TV's, free Wi-Fi, hairdryers and all have White Company robes and toiletries.
We pride ourselves on our locally sourced and freshly cooked breakfasts and cream teas. Dinners are also available by prior arrangement and we particularly enjoy providing private dinner parties for groups. Our fully stocked bar has a cosy wood burning stove to add to the relaxing ambience in the hotel.
The hotel has a heated swimming pool and 2 acres of gardens for guests to enjoy.
We offer a unique venue for either smaller boutique or larger marquee weddings and the hotel is also ideal for business meetings or other events such as parties or Christenings.
Whatever your interest from walking, sightseeing, fishing, sunbathing on the beach or by the pool, sailing, playing golf, horse riding or fossil hunting the Dower House is the perfect base for your visit to the area.
For guests interested in enjoying special food experiences we are also the closest hotel to the renowned River Cottage HQ and are near to Hix's Oyster & Fish House in Lyme Regis.
