The house is located in a beautiful and quiet valley. The rooms are nice and the bathroom was very good. The breakfast is B&B standard. What ruined the stay was the fact that our host was overwhelmed by servicing two guests. She forgot dinner reservations and a tea promised was less important than talking to a friend on the phone....

Lorel gave us a wonderful welcome to her beautiful Manor. She made us feel us at home from the minute we arrived, and this was reinforced by the quality of the room she provided us with. The location is peaceful and idyllic situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Dorset. Breakfast was a feast and we had truly... More

Our group of 20 spent a weekend at Higher Melcombe Manor in May 2013. We had an excellent evening enjoying wine and dinner in the big banqueting hall. The catering was first rate all weekend, and the hosts were very welcoming - recommended.

I wanted to explore southern England and a friend recommended that I stay at Melcombe Manor and it was a great suggestion. It is a beautiful home in the county with green rolling hills and scenic farmland. When I arrived Lorel and her trusty dog, Alfie were there to greet me. One walks into a beutiful and well decorated foyer... More

We stayed with Lorel, Michael and Alf (the dog) in January, after many weeks of travel and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Lorel is thoughtful of her guests needs and the rooms cater for a relaxing, peaceful stay. We had snow while there and the huge fire in the main lounge was so lovely to come... More

Wonderful country wedding venue, made perfect by Lorel's equally wonderful warm and welcoming hospitality. She made us feel so much at home in her beautiful house - we felt like much-loved old friends when she and Alfie (the lurcher) greeted us on our arrival. The bedrooms are lovely, the breakfasts great, the gardens are gorgeous - and the sun shone... More

We've just had a fantastic stay at Melcombe - Lorel was fabulous, solving our last minute crises and wonderfully accommodating. My room was gorgeous, luxurious feel and yet very relaxed. Beautiful views and gardens really well kept, great venue for a country wedding. Looking forward to returning for B and B.

My mother had a wonderful stay. She compared it with six stars hotels. The service was absolutely amazing. Lorel is one of the friendliest person I have come across -- also very caring with great humour. We would actually make a trip half way across the world, as we live in Thailand, to stay at Melcombe Manor! Highly recommended.

We spent two nights with Lorel and Alfie (the lurcher) at this charming and cosy hideaway in the rolling rural landscape of Dorset. Much more than a country B+B, this is indeed a special place to stay. The welcome is warm and one feels like a valued friend invited down for the weekend. We loved the attentuion to detail in...

This is probably the most beautiful house I have ever been in. Lorel and her wonderful dog Alfie welcome you as if one of the family and nothing is too much trouble for her. We were free to wander the lovely gardens and sit outside on the terrace in the sunshine. The bedrooms were absolutely stunning especially the paneled room... More
