Pocket Guide: Dorchester Cerne Abbas Giant Hotels

Dorset is a county threaded with myth and legend. Perhaps its most famous figure is the Cerne Abbas Giant - a 180ft tall man carved into the chalk hill that overlooks the village. How and why he got there remain unanswered, although theories abound, from the sublime to the ridiculous! The Giant was thought at one time to be used in ancient fertility rites. Today, despite being protected by the National Trust, he continues to attract thousands of visitors. Although he is easily identified as a male, the Cerne Abbas Giant is something of a family attraction and there's a good range of accommodation nearby, from characterful B&Bs and olde-worlde inns, to sleek, chic hotels.

A Man of Mystery: Hotels near the Cerne Abbas Giant

The Cerne Abbas Giant was first recorded in 1694, but carbon-dating suggests that he is over 1500 years old and is thought to be a Pagan symbol of fertility. When you see him, it becomes obvious why that assumption is the one generally believed! The one thing that can be taken as read is that there is some excellent accommodation just a stone's throw away, such as the George Albert Hotel and the Hunters Moon Inn.

Dining in Cerne Abbas

With Cerne Abbas being a small village, you might be forgiven for thinking that there wouldn't be any places to eat in the shadow of the Giant. Fortunately, many Cerne Abbas hotels boast their own restaurants. The Brace of Pheasants Inn is well-known locally for its excellent cuisine, serving seasonal and heart fare throughout the year. The Greyhound Inn, too, is well respected for its delicious dishes.

Luxury Hotels in the Area

While Cerne Abbas is a rustic village, if the idea of timbered beams and crackling fires isn't quite what you're after, there are luxury hotels in the area. The Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa is as good as it gets, offering elegant, refined rooms in a Georgian house. Rather than crusty rolls and game pies, you'll find the restaurant here serves exquisite dishes created from locally sourced ingredients and produce. In addition, the indulgent spa puts the icing on the cake; ideal after a hard-day's sight-seeing.

The Cerne Abbas Giant is just one of many landmarks that adds to Dorset's mystery and magic. With excellent accommodation close to most attractions, you can explore the region at your leisure.
