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

Arrived in pouring rain to a warm welcome, scones and tea. Friendly dogs in hall! Lovely comfortable room (Penfold) and great full english breakfast. One night stay but still memorable for the right reasons!

We've just returned from a fantastic weekend in Flint, and are already talking about when we can go back. We arrived to a warm welcome (cake, fresh flowers, wood burner blazing) and directions to the local pub, which is a good spot for dinner if you don't want to cook. Flint itself is fantastic - finished to a great standard,... More

We stayed in The Flint for a weekend Just fabulous. From fresh hens eggs and cake left out for us, the standard of everything from the cottage itself, to fixtures and fittings, bedding and toiletries. Thought has gone into everything. Owner very friendly and helpful. Local pub 5 mins walk and food fab. And outside bath, so romantic!

I want to thank all at Launceston Farm for their absolutely marvellous hospitality and for helping make our hen party extravaganza such a roaring success! I wanted the weekend to be relaxing, luxurious and sophisticated and Launceston Farm ticked all the boxes... It was a real bonus to be able to hire the entire house and have the place to... More

We all absolutely loved having you to stay! It brings the house to life when we have a large party taking over the place. We had so much fun and we managed to pick up some top tips for another group of hens we have staying this winter. Thank you so much for choosing us. More

The accommodation was beautiful in a lovely setting. We stayed in Hungry Hill which was a lovely room, but the shower was painfully powerful with a needle-like intensity. Sarah was the most unfriendly hostess we have ever encountered whilst staying at a B&B. She refused to take responsibility for our late breakfast which we requested early, & then provided a... More

Met at the door by Sarah shown to our very large bedroom with the largest ensuite with roll top bath, double shower and twin basins. Sarah then gave us cake and tea and told us the best places to eat. The farm is in a stunning location and was really convenient for our visit to the Dorset steam fair as... More
