Ideally situated, tucked away in a lovely village but centrally situated for Dorset attractions. This barn conversion is beautiful with fantastic features. The moment you enter, a feeling of complete relaxation takes over! The hosts were warm, welcoming and helpful. Our room was very pretty and the bed extremely comfortable. I am slightly in love with the feather duvet and...

When I booked I was told by the owner the house wasn't easy to find but it was simple, just off the main road and having seen the photo we saw it straight away. There was a warm welcome from the owner Bill. With a coffee and cake. The rooms were delightful with en suite, a little dark for me...

This place is very quirky and we really enjoyed our night's stay in the court yard room. The owners are very welcoming and the room was very clean and of a high standard. It's a 15min drive to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove and they are amazing places to visit.

Friendly welcome, lovely room, good breakfast. We actually quite strongly dislike communal breakfast tables but that's just us I guess. There was huge advantage in staying here for the Steam fair, it did literally take 20 minutes from the guest house to being parked at the fair with no queue.
