Fullers Earth is a gem in the charming village of Cattistock within easy reach of many of Dorset's treasures,including Thomas Hardy's cottage and his later home, Max Gate, We enjoyed glorious walks in the surrounding countryside. Wendy and Ian were generous and attentive hosts. Fullers Earth is a charming property, tastefully decorated and furnished, offering a high standard of accommodation.... More

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we felt welcomed, totally cared for and spoilt! My husband and I were staying in the area as we were photographing a 3 day wedding. When we arrived, Ian and Wendy had remembered why we were there and offered us tea and homemade cake in their STUNNING garden to keep... More

I really don't want to write this review but promised Ian and Wendy that I would so can't let them down! The reason I'm not keen on reviewing is that the next time we go to book they will be full! Saying that I have already booked a weekend next year. The bedrooms are lovely, breakfast is delicious, and the... More

A beautiful house in a lovely village with a pretty garden. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished. And when Wendy and Ian say "nothing is too much trouble" that's exactly how it is. We had a wonderful weekend with three generations. What fun!

My wife and I stayed for three nights in the Courtyard Room at Fullers Earth. We were apprehensive that after reading so many glowing reviews we might be let down by the reality. However we cannot praise Ian and Wendy enough for creating such a wonderful experience for us. Wendy's cakes are every bit as enticing as other reviewers have... More

What a find! This place is really as good as everyone says - just faultless. A stunning start to the New Year - staying with the perfect hosts - Wendy and Ian. Fullers Earth is really a home from home (but the type of home you wish you had in reality!) The B and B was so comfortable with the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in October in the Courtyard room. After a long journey it was lovely to receive a warm welcome, with tea and cake in the comfortable guests' lounge. Throughout our stay Ian and Wendy were very helpful in providing suggestions for activities, walks and local places to eat. Ian has many books and maps about... More

Everything about Fullers Earth works. No doubt other B&Bs are better in specific areas but, overall, this is easily the best B&B we have stayed in - and we've done dozens! With a warm welcome in the Courtyard, tea and cake on arrival, a lovely spacious comfy room, then an excellent pub a couple of minutes away through the garden,... More

This was our third visit to Fullers Earth and we still think this is our favorite B&B. Ian and Wendy continue to be the perfect hosts, providing a warm welcome and plenty of advice on exploring Dorset. We only stayed a couple of nights this time but found time to walk along the coastal path between Seatown and Charmouth which... More

This is a lovely Georgian house in a peaceful village setting with a good food pub a very short stroll away. Received a very warm welcome from Ian and Wendy with tea and home made cake on arrival. Our room was spotlessly clean, bright, with a very comfortable bed. Ian and Wendy are a lovely couple with lots of suggestions... More
