We spent two nights in this lovingly restored and very personally decorated house a few minutes stroll from the centre of Dorchester. The host, Mark, is a charming friendly man who gave us good helpful recommendations for pubs and restaurants in the town. Our room was large and nicely furnished and the breakfasts were a treat. This was great value... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 under 3 booked the family suite that consisted of 2 adjoining rooms and private bath at the top of the house. Loads of space, very comfortable, and we couldn't tell if there was anyone else staying (although Mark did tell us they were full). They were exceptionally accommodating and friendly. I did feel...

I needed somewhere to stay before a cycle sportive on the Jurassic coast. I booked Beggar's Knap based on location and reviews. Mark texted me to arrange my arrival and breakfast time. A beautiful victorian house with some eclectic decor and trinkets ( I had an old street lamp with a miniature captain hook inside in my en suite) My... More

Lovely B&B. Mark is very friendly, helpful and full of useful local information. Other reviewers mention the tricky car park, but the gates are generous and we didn't find it problematic. Certainly don't let it put you off. I loved all the interesting family memorabilia and information on the property itself.

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.
