Booked late but what a great find. Very friendly and helpful, a lovely room and fabulous breakfast. The wi fi didn't extend to my room but I was able to work in the dining room which was perfect. It offers secure parking and is literally right next to the town centre, so plenty of choice of eateries. All in all... More

Number 5 rates among the best B&Bs we have stayed in. The house itself is lovely, both inside and out. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and wonderfully comfortable. The bed was heavenly, the shower divine and the thick fluffy towels a dream. We also appreciated the extra touches, like tea and coffee facilities and the chocolates on the dressing... More

Beautiful decor, breakfast delicious and lots of choice, Kate and husband simply charming hosts. Every touch thought of from bottled water to toiletries to local chocolates. Bathrooms and bedrooms exceptionally decorated, Location excellent, beautiful walks and the town on doorstep, everything a perfect B&B should be. We too had the 2 rooms, but they are sufficiently self contained for It... More

A perfect nights stay!! We booked both rooms and it's a lovely building to look at from the outside...and that door handle!! Excellent welcome; gentle but effective. The dog and cat help you too! Both rooms were perfect. A decent size and....just comfortable!! Everything you would expect at a top B@B. It was so nice to use the French windows... More

Stayed one night apart from the cold draught through the old window, I found the place quite enchanting. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely I even took photos of the building to show my wife. But fix those windows

One of the most beautiful places we've stayed: gorgeously Georgian. It evoked a lot of house envy! We appreciated and loved the careful attention to every detail a host could provide. The enormous bed meant a perfect night's sleep. The location is perfect to potter around Shaftesbury and there are great pubs/ restaurants within moments. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at this charming B&B. We chose the smaller room with the shower, which which we found perfectly adequate--and I was impressed by the fluffy towels and the built-in closet. The breakfast was delicious and the room in which it was served was sunny, private and elegant. Shaftesbury itself is charming and the... More
