Bear Of Burton

Hotel in Christchurch

Bear of Burton has unique, individually designed bedrooms and a popular local restaurant. Christchurch is just 5 minutes’ drive away. The property was renovated in the last few months and they have made an outstanding job of it - beautifully furnished and amazing staff. They are very dog friendly and even leave treats for the pooch in the bedrooms. We stayed for two nights and ate in their restaurant for breakfast and dinner - on all occasions the food was amazing and really good quality produce is used - and the staff have no issues in swapping out food dependant on your dietary requirements. I would highly, highly recommend.

FAQs about hotels in Dorset

Southern English Natural Charm

With one of the highest proportions of conservation areas in England, the Dorset County includes 2 ‘Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ covering more than half of its territory. It is also famous for the ‘Jurassic Coast’, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that actually represents three-quarters of the county’s coastline.

Considering that half of the population lives in the south-east of the county, Dorset is characterised by an enchanting countryside atmosphere. Languid limestone hills and clay valleys cover a big part of its surface. Loads of Dorset hotels and inns are spread throughout this area.

Shaftesbury is one of the most picturesque towns, rolling down the hill with old rural houses. A visit to the chief town of Dorchester and its County Museum is a must. Check out some of the Dorset boutique hotels located in old refurbished manor houses, and spread throughout the county.

The Jurassic Coast runs along 155 km. It includes magnificent formations like the Lulworth Cove and the Durdle Door arch, plus the Isle of Portland with Chesil Beach and its large tidal lagoon.

The cities of Weymouth, Poole, Bournemouth, and Christchurch are located along its coasts. Experience this charming piece of England, don’t miss the Booking.com special offers for Dorset hotels.
