My husband and I stayed here for two nights 11th/12th August. Diane and Ian were very welcoming and friendly and our room was spotless and very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was delicious but there were lots of other cold choices if it was your preference. The B&B is in a wonderful location and is a short walk into Shaftesbury town.

We stayed here for one night as part of a two day mini break in Dorset. The B & B is very clean and well-appointed: our room was comfortable and well furnished and the ensuite was modern with a good shower. The owners are very friendly and made us feel welcome, giving us tips on local places to visit. Breakfast... More

Family event in Shaftsbury and decided to stay here. Lovely little place for an overnight stay. Diane made us very welcome, and the room we had was very comfortable and everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was too die for, everything you could have wanted for the start of the day. Next time we are down there, we... More

My wife & I spent a night in this delightful B&B. Ian & Diane were wonderful hosts with the right balance of friendliness without being nosey. The full English breakfast was delicious and cooked to order: nothing that had sat under a warmer and was then rushed out to us. The room was clean with toiletries provided, as well as... More

The hosts and owners Ian and diane are a... More

Having just spent 10 nights at this B&B over a 19 day period, I can highly recommend ‘Holbrook’ as one of the very best places to stay. Both Ian and Diane are fantastic hosts, and certainly go the extra mile or two to ensure that their guests have a comfortable stay with them. My first two nights were spent in... More

We stayed at The Holbrook for a week recently while our house was being attacked by builders. It is warm and comfortable and situated close to the centre of Shaftesbury so that even in the middle of the winter it is easy to walk to one of Shaftesbury's many pubs or restaurants. The room we had was neatly furnished and... More

Easy to find as located on A350 upon entering Shaftesbury but in a quiet area apart from regular, daytime traffic. Most welcoming and tea and coffee facilities replenished daily. Very comfortable room, great breakfast choice, ideal for Shaftesbury town and major route access. An excellent choice for visiting this area of Dorset.
