We would highly recommend a stay at Susie's place. From the warmest of welcomes, to the lovely room with ultra comfy bed, ensuite bathroom with lashing of hot water and nice toiletries, not to mention the awesome breakfast, altogether we had a 5 star experience

We very much enjoyed our stay and felt that everything was done to make us comfortable. It seems to have late availability which can be useful for last minute trips and reflects the relatively high prices charged. The inadequacy of internet access and the dismissive approach to seeking internet access was the only off note from a high quality and... More

That was the loveliest stay ever we had... Susie and Martin are such kind persons and they absolutely understand how to make someone feel like in heaven. The location is a blast... if you want to relax for a couple of days, just bring book and enjoy this great location and the superb service... We have really just enjoyed our... More

Second time we have stayed at this delightful place. Lovely pubs nearby with super food. Recent visit spoiled by being asked to supper in house and then charged £80 (£40 each) for the privilege!! If they had told us how much it was going to cost we would have gone back to the Fox and the scrumptious scallops which cost... More

We were delighted to see you again at Wooden Cabbage last week, for your second visit, but very upset to read that you were disappointed to be charged for dinner. We serve canapes, a three-course dinner and half a bottle of wine per person - the price of £40 is detailed on our website. Since we were serving dinner to... More

An excellently run B and B in a quiet location with superb views from the spacious house. If you are lucky enough to be there when an evening meal is available you should take the opportunity to dine in and enjoy great cooking in a lovely setting.

It is easy to see why everyone loves this farm stay. Pretty, quiet, great food and wonderful and interesting hosts. Take the time to ask about their backgrounds and their winters in Tonga. The only downside is the location which is a bit out of the way but there are many National Trust sites fairly near as well as writers'... More

The Wooden Cabbage was a truly delightful experience from the moment we arrived at this pretty and tranquil property. A warm welcome awaited us from Susie and Martyn along with tea on the verandah in their picturesque garden. Our room was very comfortable with all that you could desire. We were also introduced to ginger and lemon tea - very... More

The title says it all really. Stayed a couple of nights in June and didn't want to leave. I can't recommend too highly. Wonderful breakfast. A gem of a building set in the beautiful Dorset countryside. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and well laid out. We were captivated by a new-born foal in the field adjoining the garden - see... More

Stayed for two days - delightful hosts Martyn and Susie immediately made us feel like one of the family. Comfortable, clean with the best breakfast this side of the Ritz, with wonderful views down the rural valley. My only teensy gripe is the signage - it isn't the easiest place to find being in the sticks and a more prominent... More

A warm welcome awaits here ! Good advice, fantastic country views, peace and quiet...a small piece of heaven. Exceptional rooms in a remoter part of Dorset but with good local restaurants and within 30 minutes of the coast. Martyn and Susie are superb hosts and their garden and home is exceptional.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The views are stunning at this beautifully restored and decorated house, set in the most tranquil and unspoiled part of West Dorset. You instantly feel at home, as Martyn and Susie are perfect hosts. A spacious stylish home, the bedrooms are exceptional and the downstairs rooms simply wonderful. A heroic breakfast is served in the flower filled garden-room (or by Aga in winter), and delicious dinners - ingredients, mostly local or homegrown, are cooked with love and understanding. ... more   less
