My partner and I have just enjoyed a great 2 night stay at The Old Rectory B&B. We were greeted very warmly by Caroline who showed us where breakfast was served, the communal lounge and up to our room (we stayed in Sherbourne) and all its facilities. First impressions were very good with no complaints and that remained throughout our... More

My husband and I have just returned, {3rd Sept 14}, from our second stay at The Old Rectory Country House B&B. A big thank you to Caroline for making us so welcome. She treats her guests like "old friends". The rooms are gorgeous. The grounds are lovely. The hospitality is faultless and the breakfasts are endless. The property is in... More

This is the best B&B we have stayed in. A beautiful house kept to the highest of standards. Caroline was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome, doing her best to help us wherever possible. The quality showed throughout, to the smallest detail (real fruit juices for breakfast and a fab fryup with quality sausages).Even when we managed... More

We stayed for six nights at The Old Rectory in the "four poster " bedroom which was spacious and comfortable . Caroline was very welcoming and provides an excellent breakfast . We enjoyed the quiet village and comfortable bed , it was just lovely and we would use again without a second thought.

Found the Old Rectory Country House a few years ago and my wife and I recently returned for a few days short break. Believe that the best way to describe the Old Rectory would be to start with a blank piece of paper and then write down all of the aspects that you would ideally like to see in a... More

A visit to The Old Rectory is more than a clean and comfortable bed and a bountiful breakfast. It comes with the most gracious hostess, Caroline. The rooms are beautifully decorated, giving you all of the most modern conveniences while keeping the charm you are hoping to experience when staying at a historic home. The grounds, buildings and location are... More

My husband, 8 month old baby and I, stayed at the Old Rectory in the self- catered Old Schoolhouse and had a lovely week there. It's absolutely beautiful! The living area is huge, with large sofas, armchairs and a flat screen TV one end, and a dining table and very well equipped kitchen the other end. There is also a... More

The Old Rectory in Winterbourne Steepleton is first-class. The village is quiet and just off the busy Dorchester A 35 road. A beautiful stream runs alongside the road and it is picture-postcard England. We were in the Dorchester room which has a super king size 4 poster bed and there are two comfy armchairs plus chests of drawers in the... More

The rural location of the Old Rectory, and our room, The Abbotsbury, exceeded expectations. We were delighted with the size and facilities of both our bedroom and bathroom. Caroline and her husband were excellent hosts, welcoming, helpful and informative. The peaceful setting with the superb Saxon church next door, and the ease of access to Dorchester and the Jurassic Coast... More
