There is a magical, calming effect Marren has on you a mile before you reach it. It does not do justice to call Marren a Bed and Breakfast. You are invited to share the home of Peter and Wendy. This includes the sumptuous breakfasts, comfortable...More

A very comfortable and welcoming bed and breakfast home, with great touches like fresh flowers and wonderful bed linen, informative and friendly hosts and for us a regular get away spot for a relaxing break. Access not for the faint hearted, but scenic countryside location...More

About
Description
Overlooking the sea between Lulworth Cove and Weymouth is a house called Marren. Surrounded by National Trust land, Marren is set in a large garden on a steep slope with spectacular views of Portland and Weymouth Bay. More The only sounds are of waves breaking and the cries of buzzards. We are seven minutes from a secluded beach to the east of Ringstead and five minutes from the Dorset Coastal Path which leads to Bats Head, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. It is the perfect place for walking, seeing wildlife and breathtaking views of sea and cliffs. We have two en-suite double bedrooms. The larger one has its own entrance from the garden and a super kingsize bed; the smaller one has a spectacular view of Portland and Weymouth Bay through french windows from the bed. We can recommend a selection of excellent restaurants and pubs for eating out, plus help with local maps and directions for walks. Less
