With open views of the surrounding Dorset countryside, The Priory Hotel is nestled within 4 acres of English cottage gardens beside the River Frome. Free WiFi is provided, along with an on-site restaurant.

Each guest room comes with an en-suite bathroom, a flat-screen TV with DVD player and tea/coffee making facilities.

A full English breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at the hotel, which also features a wine cellar housing 200 vintages. Lunch is served in the Garden Room but can also be enjoyed ‘alfresco’ on the terrace in the warmer months.

The picturesque Lulworth Cove and Studland Beach can both be reached in a 20-minute drive. The hotel lies within the ancient market town and port of Wareham, which boasts Saxon town walls dating back to the 9th Century. Corfe Castle ruins and the village of Corfe are a 5-minute drive away.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.7 for a two-person trip.
