Travelled with a group of female friends end of march 2017 stayed 2 nights, we all met in 1972, it was a catch up weekend & I had recommended this b&b as been before with my husband. Our group had booked all the rooms. This was the best stay ever, most of the place has been beautifully re decorated since...

Stayed here for one night on a business trip, it's a fantastic B&B! I stayed in room 5, although it's a single room I was pleased to find a double bed. The shower and toilet are external to room but only to be used by room 5 and the quality of the shower was amazing. Breakfast the next day was...

We stayed for two nights as a base for exploring nearby. A warm greeting by the owners and we were shown to room 2. The room was massive, with a large bed which was very comfortable. There were good facilities such as tea and coffee, bottled water and biscuits. The only thing to be aware of is the shower pressure/temperature...

Lovely big and comfy bed and a very spacious room. Great breakfast in the morning with lots of choice. The only downside was the shower it had very little pressure with the temperature fluctuating. But would go again.

This was a friendly and comfortable B&B to stay in. A nice welcome, great nights sleep on a comfortable bed in a generous sized room, with nice touches like bottled water. Breakfast was freshly cooked and appetising. Wifi worked well. Just be careful of the satnav taking you somewhere else bizzarrely, although you are warned about it.

A warm welcome and excellent room. We stayed in the superior double room for two nights. It is a very spacious and well equipped room. A huge comfortable bed too. Fabulous breakfast. Perfectly cooked full English on both days. On site parking and a good location for exploring nearby Dorchester and the surrounding countryside.

The room we stayed in was room 2, at the front, a lovely big room and the bed was massive and very very comfortable. The place is one main road so there is a little road noise but with window shut we slept well. There is a ceiling fan to keep you cool if it's hot. Hots are very nice...

Situated fairly close to Dorchester this B&B is ideally placed to see the South Dorset Jurasic coast; Weymouth, Portland the Chesil Beach and to then continue west to Bridport and Lyme Regis some ninety minutes away.. On arrival we received a warm greeting and helpful info where to take our evening meal at the local pub. Our bedroom was clean...

This is a really well presented, clean and welcoming place to stay. It is about a one mile walk to a pub that serves good food that is with a visit if you're in the area. I would definitely recommend this B&B as a well-run and clean place to stay. One piece of advice, don't follow the sat nav otherwise...

“Front rooms are on the main road side, but double glazing knocks the sound back but a back side room might be quieter.”
