"The Great Escape"
When you need to get away from it all and seek comfortable tranquillity then Bookham Court is the ideal venue. We have been virtually annual visitors for over 10 years. The boys have grown up here and insist on returning each year. We have spent Spring and long Summer evenings by the BBQ and Autumnal / Winter evenings by the cosy log fire.
The wildlife and fishing pond are a great attraction with the Badgers and Owls a firm favourite. This secluded Hamlet is only minutes from a number of fine Pubs and the Market Town of Dorchester and Sea side town of Weymouth are but a short drive away and have the facilities to provide for every aspect of a traditional English break.
