I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked here. But communications were great, and I was texted to check my time of (late) arrival, and shown a lovely, comfortable room. Period furnishings and decor done perfectly! The breakfast room is a work of period art, and could be used in a film set. What a lovely place and a... More

We stayed here for one night in order to visit my sister in hospital . It was convenient for bot the hospital and town centre. Mark, the owner, is very helpful,and breakfast was fantastic. A quirky place to stay and we may well return soon.

We had a night at Beggar's Knap which is a charming property. Very nice host, very friendly and welcoming. The shared breakfast table was a bit unexpected and not necessarily our choice. It was however very interesting. This is probably fine for most people so not really a negative.

Two night stay in November over the weekend. Perfect location for walking around Dorchester. Useful on site car park although it is a bit tight. Mark was the perfect host and we can only echo all the good feedback from earlier reviews. A very enjoyable stay.

The room was large with a large very comfortable bed and a good sized en suite. Breakfast was again very good, well cooked and plenty for a good appetite. The house is impressive... More

We stayed her for a couple of nights and had an extremely pleasant stay. The house is very close to the town and the railway station, and whilst Mark appears to do just about everything himself, he is the most charming and helpful host you could wish for. The bedroom we had was very comfortable, with good beds and we... More

A real find! Only stayed one night and really just needed a bed for the night. However this place is full of character, as well as being clean and comfy. Others have already commented how friendly & welcoming Mark was. Would definately recommend for a short break
