Welcome to Ammonite Lodge Guest House...

Katherine and James welcome you to their home, an 18th century large cottage, a 4 star accredited guest house. Only a 2 minute walk to a wide choice of restaurants and pubs. We also have a lovely dining room and a cosy lounge for guest use.

Conveniently located at the top of the High Street opposite the Chard Museum, we are a short walk away from the shops and restaurants.

Ammonite Lodge is a 300 year old cottage style building, full of character and an ideal base for:

  • Business guests working in the area
  • Wedding guests for Hornsbury Mill, Forde Abbey and other local venues
  • Exploring Lyme Regis and the Jurassic coast (25 minutes drive)
  • Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ and Canteen (15 minutes drive to Axminster)
  • Axminster Power Tools courses
  • Visiting National Trust houses and gardens
  • Walkers and cyclists (garage stowage available)

Whether you are staying for one night or one week, we aim to provide you with a warm and friendly welcome, comfortable beds and a quality breakfast made from locally produced products.

There is private parking at the rear of the guest house, but please park at the front initially, so that we can check you in and help with your luggage.
