The views, scenery and house is outstanding! Higher Melcombe Manor is one of the most gorgeous settings I've seen. My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service was both relaxed but of such a high standard, the room was a treat and breakfast was so yummy! Definitely recommended to all.

Anyone thinking of staying here should do just that! It's a wonderfully peaceful place - so comfortable and pretty and such a great retreat if you are tired and weary. Michael is a delight to stay with and all the little details are taken care of. Everything is spotlessly clean and the breakfast is just how you would want it...

We have just returned from a two night stay with Michael at Higher Melcombe Manor. We could not have been made more welcome. We had the top two bedrooms, each with it's own large luxurious en suite with bath and shower, plus a large lounge area with TV/DVD and a kitchenette area to make your own tea and coffee (provided)....

Stumbled across Higher Melcombe Manor by chance an amazing manor house located in beautiful deepest Dorset. The house and gardens are amazing, the same could be said of our perfect host, Lorel and Alf, her adorable dog (a lurcher). Lorel couldn't be more welcoming to her home recommending places to visit and all the best pubs to eat in the...

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a fabulous stay at Higher Melcombe Manor. Relaxed from the moment we arrived - due in part to our beautiful surroundings but especially due to our hosts Lorel and Michael (and Alf). Their obvious enjoyment in what they do and ease at which they do it generates a calm, contented atmosphere. We...

Such a lovely old manor in an idyllic setting. Rooms were fantastic and the hospitality from Lorel and Michael (and Alfie) was really welcoming and friendly. They shared with us their wonderful home and all it's history. A very relaxing stay with lots of homely personal touches.

The house is wonderful, the countryside is glorious and Lorel and Michael are the perfect hosts. I stayed for one night during a business trip to the area and had a unique and memorable visit for about the cost of a room in a Premier Inn! There's no comparison. Visiting Higher Melcombe Manor is like rediscovering old friends, not least...

Lorel and Michael really made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. We were greeted by Lorel, who led us through a very impressive series of rooms with a roaring fire going in the reception room. We went up to the our room - the panel room which was just stunning. Every detail was thought of from fresh...

The house is located in a beautiful and quiet valley. The rooms are nice and the bathroom was very good. The breakfast is B&B standard. What ruined the stay was the fact that our host was overwhelmed by servicing two guests. She forgot dinner reservations and a tea promised was less important than talking to a friend on the phone....

Lorel gave us a wonderful welcome to her beautiful Manor. She made us feel us at home from the minute we arrived, and this was reinforced by the quality of the room she provided us with. The location is peaceful and idyllic situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Dorset. Breakfast was a feast and we had truly...
