We stayed for a short break for our friends' wedding locally. The village itself is lovely, especially the Church next door to Longbarn. We were very warmly welcomed indeed and felt at home straight away. We had our four month old son with us and the hosts made every effort to accommodate us - in fact Anya went out of... More

We spent one night here after visiting family nearby. It was just what we wanted: a spotlessly clean room, a lovely comfortable bed, a welcoming hostess, an excellent pub literally 2 minutes walk away, and a wonderful cooked breakfast. It is 'off the beaten track' but very easy and convenient to get to. The village is picturesque and very quiet.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely B&B, where Anya and Mark are excellent hosts. Anya makes you feel really at home, and while we had our privacy (separate front door), it was like staying with friends. The level of accommodation is very good and very restful, even the birds sound happy to be in West Stafford. Breakfasts were... More

We stayed at Longbarn House for 2 nights and it was lovely. Perfectly located to visit Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door (as we did). We also went to Dorchester and Weymouth, all in easy reach. Anya and her family were very friendly and we felt like we were staying with friends. Our room was cosy, clean and had lovely furnishings.... More

I stayed with Anya and Mark last weekend as I was attending a Horse event at Kingston Maurward. It was a last minute stay but they were able to accommodate for me perfectly. The couple were welcoming, easy-going and I felt really at home. The room I stayed in was cosy and very clean and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast... More

We stayed here for two nights in October and Anya and her family could not have been more welcoming. Our room and en suite were thoughtfully decorated and spotlessly clean. We felt unhurried and very at home; it was like staying with friends.

You have to wonder whether reviewer BrianH_10 could be happy anywhere. This was our second stay here (fast becoming an annual event). No complaints whatsoever. Rooms are to a high standard and beautifully done-up. Anja and Mark treat you like one of the family. A really relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Great breakfast, wonderful night's sleep. Price perfectly acceptable. All in... More

We were staying for a friend’s wedding and even though Mark & Anya were not officially open till next month they were very kind and allowed us to stay. The rooms are not... More
