Family-friendly hotel in Dorset

Family breaks at Moonfleet Manor

Our ethos

We're not just family-friendly, we're family-focused. Our hotel offers an atmosphere that's designed with you in mind. It's a place where kids can explore, parents can unwind, and families can reconnect.


Our rooms are designed for both adults and children, creating a peaceful atmosphere for relaxation and bonding. Each room has been carefully curated and kitted out with amenities such as comfortable beds and HD TVs for family movie nights. And when bedtime approaches, we'll have milk and cookies waiting once the kids have selected a book from our library.

For those with babies and younger children, our Bugaboo Stardust travel cots guarantee the best conditions for a good night’s sleep.

Our friends at Yoto have recently kitted out our hotel with their third-generation Yoto Players. These adventure-proof devices are more than just toys - they're playmates in their own right, with almost limitless possibilities. From educational audio experiences to bedtime stories, there's plenty for kids to choose from. Just ask at reception if you'd like to borrow one during your stay.


We understand that some of life's most important moments happen at the dinner table, which is why we take food and drink so seriously. With views across the Fleet, our restaurant is open to all ages, all day, meaning you can gather the whole family for a fun-filled feast. And if you're new parents dreaming of a date night to yourselves, why not make the most of our baby video monitors? Our chef can also provide fresh puréed baby food from 7am-9pm with room service also available until 9pm.

For those travelling with younger children, we have table-height Bugaboo Giraffe highchairs in our restaurant. Suitable for all ages, even newborns, the highchairs are made from eco-friendly materials. Whether your travel companion is a newborn or a toddler, these will allow all the family to be at the table.


The indoor pool is open to all ages throughout the day, so you can practise swimming with the kids, or simply indulge in a soothing soak after a big adventure. You could even book the little ones into our crèche and indulge in a solo spa treatment, or treat them to one of our junior experiences, perfect for guests aged between 3 and 16.

Four Bears Den

Our on-site Ofsted-registered Den is a playground of imagination for children up to 8. Think arts and crafts, dressing up, toys and outdoor adventure, all under the watchful eye of our specialist team. And the best bit? You'll receive a complimentary 90 minute session per night's stay!

The little things

From the provision of equipment to bottle sterilising and warm milk at bedtime, let us take care of all the details so that you can focus on what matters most - making memories with those you love. And come bedtime, steal an hour or two to re-connect with your other half, friends or parents by making use of our baby video monitors.

We also have two Bugaboo Butterfly pushchairs onsite, which you can borrow to take out on your family adventures.

Family-focused facilities

From our Verandah activity hub with crazy golf, escape rooms and science lab to our lounges stocked with games, there's certainly no shortage of facilities to keep families of all shapes and sizes entertained. And then there's our LFH rituals that really add that sprinkle of magic - daily story time with milk and cookies, daily cinema screenings complete with popcorn and marshmallow toasting at the firepit come dusk.
