My Wife and I stayed at the Wooden Cabbage House for two nights 10th & 11th July 2015. We can highly recommend this B & B, it is set in a very nice location and the hosts most helpful and could not do enough for you. The breakfast is very good and served with a smile.

I stayed for just one night on a trip to Dorset to see a few places from my childhood memories. I had seen the Wooden Cabbage on line some months earlier and took my chance to stay there having seen the wonderful reviews. I was not disappointed. Martin and Susie were very friendly and I had a very relaxing stay.... More

A real gem in the heart of the Dorset countryside, with a stunning garden and a view to die for! We were welcomed into Susie and Martyn's beautiful home, where the peace and tranquillity of the location was rivalled only by our hosts wonderful hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble, including recommending and booking our evening dining venues, and ensuring... More

A lovely setting and excellent hospitality. Martyn and Susie were welcoming, friendly and relaxed from the very moment we arrived. Their attention to detail to make us feel relaxed and at home was striking. Wonderful breakfast.

We booked this place as the other reviews looked so good however we were a little disappointed as the owner had talked up the place and views second to none. Indeed the views were lovely but beware the unforgiving ramps on the private drive which did a lot to damage to our low sports car. We felt a little ignored... More

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Wooden Cabbage in September 2014 - over eight months ago now. We have looked through our records and we cannot find any couple from Exeter having stayed at Wooden Cabbage in September 2014. Equally, we cannot remember having a couple to stay who had had a problem with a... More

Lovely house set in the rolling Dorset hills with fantastic views across the countryside and within half an hour of the Dorset coast. Martyn and Susie's hospitality is second to none with nothing too much trouble and stellar breakfasts to set you up for a day exploring ahead. This was our second visit and I am sure there will be...

A really special place with great views and luxurious accommodation. The food was excellent with some delicious homemade extras. The only improvement would have been a wider bed and a better shower screen but this is a mere detail.

We were thrilled that you came back to stay at Wooden Cabbage for a second time, whilst walking 'The Jubilee Trail', and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your one-night stay with us. You will be pleased to hear that we have ordered a larger Kingsize bed to replace the double bed in the cream room, and it will... More
