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

We spent a night with Kate & Trevor at Five Bimport earlier in the week. Having spent a couple of days on a farm on the Somerset / Devon border, this beautiful Georgian town house couldn't have been more different in style, but equally unforgettable for its warmth, hospitality, design and charm. Shaftesbury deserves a visit - a beautiful town... More

The exterior picture of this place doesn't do it justice. It is much nicer than that picture suggests. The home is beautifully decorated, clean, warm and friendly. The hosts could not have been nicer. They reccomended a pub down the road that was amazing. Our room was large and well appointed. All the creature comforts were there. Even fresh flowers.... More

The room was good, lovely "extra" touches with the furniture, excellent breakfast in the dining room with the hostess's own artwork mixed with that of other local artists, and the location could not have been better. Across from the Abbey, just around the corner from the High Street, in great walking distance to many interesting old buildings and lovely vistas,... More

Mum and I stayed two nights in the twin room - and hardly wanted to leave. Kate and Trevor are the perfect hosts, being both helpful and friendly but not intrusive. The breakfasts were delicious, the house beautifully appointed, and the location simply amazing. Literally just around the corner from Shaftesbury town Centre and across the street from Trinity Church,... More
