I stayed here for a week this month what a fabulous place. Dianne and Ian the owners are a lovely couple really welcoming and friendly. Made some great recommendations for evening meals. The breakfast is beautiful anything you could want and cooked brilliantly. Definitely will be returning when I'm next in the area.

The dining room is nice and well...

We stayed here for two nights as a base to visit the Great Dorset Steam Fair and it was an excellent choice. Other guests were also using it as a base for the steam fair which was about 20 minutes away. We enjoyed an evening in Shaftesbury which was a ten minute walk and had a lovely meal in the...

Diane and Ian made us very welcome and comfortable. High standard accommodation, and lovely breakfast (especially good poached eggs!). They also got us soya milk especially as one of our party is lactose intolerant. Thanks for having us! Fox Family
