Situated just 2 miles from the centre of Weymouth, the Heritage Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of the small town of Chickerell in West Dorset, providing easy access to both the Jurassic Coast and the surrounding area.


Hosts Rosie and Simon have been lucky enough to welcome guests to The Heritage since 2019 and aim to offer a comfortable and memorable stay with the boutique style accommodation and home cooked breakfasts all with friendly and attentive service. The property was built in 1769 and retains lots of characterful features, and has been recently modernised to provide all the comforts you need for a relaxing break.


The 7 guests bedrooms have luxury touches and all the facilities you you would want for a lovely stay. There is free WiFi in all the rooms and public areas and The Heritage provides free private parking in our car park that has space for all of our guest rooms. Our guest lounge has sofas and plenty of space to relax and enjoy a drink from the coffee machine, or from a selection of Dorset Teas. Also provided are board games, a selection of DVDs and books and maps giving information about the local area. The Heritage is a fully licensed premises and offers a small wine list for guests if they prefer an evening staying in, or to relax after a nice meal out.


Perfectly located in the middle of Dorset’s amazing Jurassic coast line, to the west you will find the picturesque villages of Abbotsbury & Burton Bradstock with thatched cottages and traditional tea rooms serving yummy Dorset Cream Teas. After passing through the vibrant market town of Bridport, you come to Lyme Regis with its famous fossil finds and picturesque harbour. To the east lies the impressive Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, possibly the most photographed natural features in the country. Further on there are the popular spots of Corfe Castle and Kimmeridge Bay as well as the market town of Wareham and beautiful seaside town of Swanage. Just a few miles north there is the county town of Dorchester with markets and museums as well as the King Charles III designed Poundbury on its outskirts.


However long your visit and whether it be for work, holiday or visiting friends, Rosie and Simon look forward to welcoming you to The Heritage and are proud to be able to have so many returning guests and regular visitors.

Highly recommended Excellent accommodation, really good breakfast, nice hosts. Pub next door does nice food too. Ideally placed for Weymouth. We have recommended to others and our daughter has already visited. Will definitely use again if visiting this area.

A perfect place to stay The best Bed and Breakfast place we've ever stayed in. Simon and Rosie are perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming. Our room was on the ground floor and called 'Old Harry' . Lovely room with access to the garden. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed etc. Tea, coffee etc in the room and small fridge with fresh milk. Breakfast was plentiful and varied with everything you could possibly want and all cooked to perfection. Plenty of parking at the house which is a bonus. It's right next door to the Turks Head Pub which served excellent food so that was a bonus. It was quiet and peaceful and we had a lovely couple of days. We are already planning a return trip if we ever get some decent weather again !! Thank you Simon and Rosie.

Best BB Excellent, well-furnished rooms with everything you might need, including some fresh milk in the fridge. Breakfast is equally excellent and the owners (Simon & Rosie) are great hosts. This was my third stay, and I can't wait to come ack next year.

Great stay at this lovely B & B, with wonderful hosts and free parking near Weymouth . Would recommend ! Lovely stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast with great hosts . The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The amenities are high end and very well thought out …a coffee machine in each room ! Breakfast was served at a time to suit us and I was able to request items that were gluten free ( coeliac me ) . Hosts Simon and Rosie are very friendly , and being able to park at the bed and breakfast and not have the hassle of parking in Weymouth itself, an added bonus ! We would definitely recommend staying here .

Very welcoming and relaxing hotel Simon and Rosie were extremely friendly and welcoming to my Dad and partner. I booked this on his behalf and Simon went out of his way to accommodate their needs. Thank you so very much for going above and beyond to ensure my Dad and his partner had an amazing and much needed break. He said the room was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! I would highly recommend this hotel!

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast Rosie and Simon are doing a fantastic job looking after their customers. The welcome, accommodation and breakfast is first class. Nothing is too much trouble for them and sounds like Simon could be a great tour guide as so knowledgeable about the area. Thank you

An Ideal Base

The Heritage is an ideal base whether you’re on holiday, visiting friends and family or coming to the area on business (the Granby Industrial Estate is just 5 minutes drive away).

downstairs breakfast
Built in 1769

Our house dates back to 1769 – one of the oldest in the area – which means some of the walls may not be straight and some of the floors might not be level! But following a period of sensitive renovation we believe your stay at The Heritage will be extremely comfortable.
