Chickens, cats and a dog were free to roam around the grounds and added to the ambiance. Breakfast in the dining room was plentiful and cooked to perfection and...

A beautiful luxurious cottage with amazing gardens and very happy chickens, cats and a dog that greet you as you enjoy a leisurely walk or maybe a quiet sit on a bench. Annie and Colin are very friendly, around when you need them but also allowing guests the space to enjoy the sitting room, dinning room and garden. The breakfast...

We had initially planned a spa break, but the prices were prohibitive, so we ended up booking the Dairy Cottage at Munden House. It was a lucky break. The facilities were superb, and the hosts were friendliness personified. I couldn't find anything to fault. The breakfast was excellent --- all the usual hot food and cereal, as well as some...

As always the warmest of welcomes at Munden House. Stayed in the Summer House for the first time and with the gorgeous weather bringing all the spring blossom out this was perfect. Very comfortable spacious room with good hot shower and well-equipped small kitchen. As always the breakfasts were excellent and our special celebration weekend could not have been better.

Immaculately clean, very friendly owners. Very lovely breakfast with good variety of fruit, home made jam and marmalade and good quality honey as well as delicious cooked breakfast. I wish I had been able to stay more than one night. We were given a fabulous recommendation of where to eat in Sherborne. Very peaceful. Beautiful views. We stayed in the...

Having originally booked for one night, we immediately booked an extra night on confirming the excellent standards. We cannot fault Munden House on any aspect of our stay. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The en-suite facilities were first-class. The bedside radio was the same top quality make we have at home (Pure). As soon as we arrived, staff...
