Melbury Chalet – Four Star Self-Catering Accommodation for Six Guests with Hot Tub


Melbury is one of our most luxurious holiday chalets, complete with an Outdoor 6-Seater Hydrotherapy Hot Tub for the ultimate in four star relaxation and comfort. Our Melbury chalet boasts self-catering accommodation for six adults and has been recently awarded a four star rating by Visit England.  We opted for a lighter exterior shade compared to our darker Hardy and Wessex chalets.  This lighter pine is continued throughout to compliment the modern and contemporary interior.

With a busy day filled with sightseeing and trips to the beach, what better way to unwind in the evening than to sit outside on the veranda with a glass of wine or a cool drink. You don’t even have to wait for a summers evening to enjoy the Hydrotherapy Hot Tub as the warm water will deliver a comfortable soak in cooler weathers.

We have been inspected by Visit England and are delighted with the Four Star awarded to Melbury Chalet.
