La Fosse

Aug 8, 2016

Save up to 32 per cent on a peaceful escape in the hills
of east Dorset. La Fosse is close to the borders of Wiltshire and Hampshire, ,
plus the scenic Dorset coast is only a 20 minute drive and the New Forest
National Park is even closer. A six course tasting menu is included from the
award winning Restaurant at La Fosse, led by Mark Hartstone, “Best Dorset Chef
of the Year 2015”. An upgrade to a suite is available for an extra £25. 

Benjamin Parker, our Dorset expert, says:  “A peaceful bed and breakfast as well as
popular restaurant. Run by husband and wife, this simple West Country retreat,
embracing both modern and traditional, feels as far from the madding crowds as

The location

Ben says: “The village is ensconced in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which covers 40 per cent of the county. The landscape encourages exploration, whether heading up to the prehistoric Hambledon Hill fort or finding your own path through the Dorset Downs.”

The rooms

Ben says: “Abstract floral patterns, bright colours and quirky antique-style pieces. Character shines through with varying room shapes dictated by the old building, exposed wooden beams and fireplaces.”

The food

Ben says: “Owner-chef Mark is a true locavore, sourcing as much from in and around the village as possible. His passion for local, inventive cuisine has seen him named best chef in Dorset. My colourful duck dish, replete with homegrown vegetables, was a highlight, drizzled in a piquant jus. Mark’s award-winning cheeseboard is part of the experience, so save some room.”
