Owner very welcoming and friendly. Very comfortable bed, room was very clean, nice hot shower/bath. We stayed in the four poster bed room, very quiet even though it faces the street. The house itself is decorated in antiques which added to the charm. Situated very close to places to eat and a cinema too. Also a short drive away from... More

In advance of arriving the customer service was excellent, great personable communication to assist with arrival times and directions. Near the station (5min walk) and near town (2min to high st). On arrival, stunned by the grandness of the property, like Victorian grandeur. My room (first floor on the right) was simply luxurious, huge bed, lush decor and basic tea/coffe... More

We visited Beggars Knap over 3 days, we were going to a wedding in Dorchester. It is simply one of the most beautiful places I have seen operating as a B&B. Stunning interior, perfect central location (yes, there's a pub across the road, we heard noise once and we were staying the weekend). Own parking as well right in the... More

Excellent value home away from home. Stayed for several months while working away from home. Large very comfortable rooms make for a relaxed stay. Choice of breakfast menu and Mark went out of his way to cook whatever he was asked for at breakfast time. Highly recommended.

We stayed in a beautiful room with a four poster bed. The furnishings were luxurious and the room was spacious. Everything was perfect. Breakfast was in the most interesting room and cooked to perfection. The host Mark was wonderful, fascinating without being too much, welcoming but not intrusive. We had a great 2 night stay.

Really pleasant and welcoming. Lots of interesting features in the building! And lovely spacious room. Me and my other half would definitely recommend (: only niggle I had was the breakfast was quite limited, but nice nevertheless. And would have been nice to have regular tea in the rooms.

A great place to stay. Full of character and the spacious bedroom with the four poster bed was so comfortable. Nice and quiet at night. And the breakfast set us up for more sightseeing of the Jurassic Coast. Definitely would stay again. Thanks to the host, most welcoming.

We were made very welcome by our charming host Mark. We got the stylish triple bedroom which brought us back in time: it had beautiful carpets, curtains, bedspread etc. I would really recommend this place if you are looking for something extraordinary and yet affordable.
