CORONAVIRUS: We are really pleased to be able to confirm that Bramlies will be open for "new normal" business from 04/07/2020 in line with Government guidelines. We will be serving breakfast on the decking for the summer months or to your room if preferred. We are now taking bookings for the rest of 2020 and onwards with full refunds if Government guidance changes. Please book by phone for the moment so we can ensure we leave a minimum of 72 hours either side of your reservation in line with our Risk Assessment to ensure your safety.
Alison and family look forward to extending you a very warm welcome. We pride ourselves on our excellent service and guest accommodation, with beautifully furnished en-suite rooms, including 2 detached ground floor rooms. A varied breakfast menu is available, and we use high quality local produce wherever possible.
We are situated 10-15 minutes’ walk from the shops and attractions of Dorchester and are near to Dorset County Hospital (DCH) (less than 5 minutes’ walk) and the Dorset History Centre, formerly the Dorset County Records office (7 minutes’ walk). The nearest pub/restaurant is The Poet Laureate on Poundbury which is a 5-10 minute walk away. There are numerous other restaurants and pubs in the town centre. We are just a 30 minute drive (or bus ride) from the beautiful coast line where Broadchurch was filmed.
Within 2 minutes’ walk from Bramlies is the bus stop for the X51 bus which takes you to the Jurassic coast at Bridport, Lyme Regis and on to Axminster. Buses to Weymouth stop a further 2 minutes’ walk away – a great way to travel without hassle! Also within walking distance are Dorchester's 2 railway stations.
Staying with us in Dorchester means you are ideally situated for exploring Hardy’s beautiful Dorset countryside and the dramatic World Heritage Coast. At Bramlies you will also find yourself right on the edge of HRH Prince Charles' development of Poundbury, with its unusual architecture and individual shops.
There is off road parking for cars as well as hardstanding parking suitable for motorcycles.
We have a lovely decked area in the garden where you are welcome to relax with a tea, coffee or glass of wine after your day out. We are able to provide packed lunches on request and we offer free WIFI.
We are a non-smoking house, although smoking is permitted in the garden.
Sorry, but we are unable to accommodate pets.
