Stayed at Launceston Farm in Flint cottage at the end of April. The cottage was beautiful with all the facilities we need for a great break exploring the Dorset coast. Although close to the road it had no impact on our stay and found the location idilic surrounded by lovely rolling countryside , a perfect base to access the best... More

This is a beautiful georgian farmhouse B&B with stone-flagged floors, set in a working farm. The room was lovely and comfortable. There was a lovely guest room and the whole farmhouse is beautiful and lovely gardens and courtyards. Sarah the owner is one lucky woman. Breakfast included home grown sausages and bacon! A gem!

We loved everything about Launceston Farmhouse B&B. The rooms themselves are extremely tastefully decorated and comfortable, with excellent en suite facilities. We had a friendly, but relaxed, welcome which made us feel immediately at home. The breakfasts were excellent, and cooked to order. We didn't eat an evening meal at the farmhouse, but other guests rated Sarah's cooked dinners very... More

Dorset is England's green and pleasant land Rolling hills, farm animals and picture postcard villages with thatched cottages and little streams passing through the middle. So it is with great anticipation that I book a return visit to Launceston Farm. Since I was last here the garden area in front of the house has been transformed into something rather beautiful...

We stayed in Flint the self catering cottage, you will not be disappointed with this beautiful cottage, its situated in a beautiful village and its in a beautiful area of Dorset. This cottage wants for nothing, everything down to a homemade cake on arrival. Underfloor heating gave it a lovely cosy feel,(can be adjusted) seating a little small (two seater... More

I had a three day event at my HQ in Poole. My options were Lenny Henry or Fine wines with a bed. (I am allergic to wine) or this delightful B and B. Set in the most beautiful of surroundings Sarah was charming and were the dogs. The room had everything from a hot water bottle to roll top bath.... More

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at Launceston Farm B&B. It was an early Mothers Day present and one that has been a relaxing break for us all. The rooms were lovely and if you have an eye for interior design you will appreciate the attention to detail that the farm has to offer. As a host... More

What can I say, Sarah's farmhouse has it all. Calm, peaceful rooms, a superb breakfast (don't miss the fresh apple juice) and wifi if like me you're on business and need to work - who in their right mind would stay in a boring hotel when you can experience the relaxing atmosphere of Launceston Farm? And to top it all... More

We have just spent a relaxing week in The Flint. Arrived to find cake, flowers in a beautiful romantic cottage with a Woodburner and an outside copper bath ( bubble bath, tea lights and a starry sky). We took advantage of Sarah's wonderful cooking and had tagine and crumble delivered in the evening followed by a cooked breakfast in the... More
