Welcome to Higher Kingcombe Lodge set in the idyllic peaceful setting of rural west Dorset overlooking spring-fed tiered fishing lakes that attract a host of wildlife, from kingfishers to sika deer. 

Paul and Andrea's family have lived at Higher Kingcombe for over 70 years. We converted the barns in 2006 to provide friendly and informal all year round bed and breakfast accommodation in seven ensuite rooms, two of which are wheelchair accessible, arranged around a courtyard setting. Evening meals are available by arrangement.

The Lodge adjoins the Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Lower Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve, renowned as ‘the farm that time forgot’. Here you can freely meander across meadows that are rich in history and diversity of flora and fauna. 

Close to the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline with its stunning beaches, fossil hunting, local market towns, picturesque villages and open countryside, there is something for everyone in this captivating part of west Dorset.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing this haven of tranquillity with you in this unspoilt and truly beautiful Dorset valley that provides a degree of sanctuary for those who wish to switch off from the pressures of modern life.
