I recently spent two nights at The Old Farriers. It was a lovely place to stay - a well appointed room with an excellent view. Breakfast was very good and I can recommend it to others looking for fair priced accommodation in this attractive Dorset town.

Dorothy at Old Farriers could not have been more hospitable. She brought us warm scones after we arrived! When we asked if we could store some white wine in her refrigerator, she brought it to us cold with pretty wine glasses after a long day of sight-seeing! Ask about her delicious fish and rice dish - Ketteridge. She was delightful... More

...when you arrive dont be put off by the scruffy nature of the alley or the houses that are at the bottom, as we initially were. Dorothy has a little haven there and once youre inside the room, which because of the decking, feels more like a little apartment, is outstanding - as are the cream tea and the breakfast.... More

My husband and I had a lovely stay at The Old Farriers. Busy city workers we were looking for a post Christmas quiet getaway and this Dorset B&B delivered just that. Our room was quiet and clean, beds were comfy. The surrounding area and views are lovely and Dorothy provided a friendly atmosphere without being imposing on our space. We... More

Divinely comfortable bed and superb breakfast -... More

Perfect location in centre but peaceful setting. The views looking down across the Dorset countryside are stunning. Our room was very nice with a huge and comfortable bed. Dorothy the hostess made us feel at home and prepared us the most delicious breakfast. I would love to return in the summer to enjoy a lazy sunny day relaxing on the... More

This review is a bit late as we were staying here about a year ago. Yet the very reason I need to write is I want to share with you this wonderful experience. The room is comfortable and clean and with a spectacular view. The breakfast is very delicious and with all the freshest ingredients. Dorothy shared with us while... More
