    Set in an area of natural outstanding beauty and 5 miles inland from the world famous Jurassic coast making it a tourist attraction. Most of our guests are from the UK however we also have a number of overseas visitors plus we are extremely dog friendly and enjoy meeting all breeds of dogs. Being very hands on with support and training the Workawayer will gain experience in all departments of running a small hotel from housekeeping & waiting to all round assistance on the property. We are unique in that we are an independent family run hotel where the owners are very hands on and involved in the business which results in staff being mentored by the proprietors and senior members of staff.
