We have children at school in Sherborne and have been visiting for the past six years. We stay in a variety of hotels, pubs and sometimes B&B's, depending on availability and price. However, after spending two nights at Cumberland House, I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else. We loved everything about our stay. Sandie, the owner and host... More

It was remiss of me not to review this wonderful establishment sooner. The landlady is very warm and welcoming and made us feel quite at home. The room and bathroom were immaculate. The toiletries and towels were of a 5 star standard. My only gripe, and there is nothing that can be done because of the size of the room,... More

Lovely hidden little B&B would definitely recommend. We stayed in the first bedroom, very good couple of nights sleep in snug bed linen. Our bathroom was across the landing, not a problem, (robes provided), modern, clean with a fantastic shower. Plenty of towels provided. Fantastic choice for breakfast in the morning starting with fresh fruit followed by a very tasty... More

after last years stay with Sandie, we decided to stay again this year. We had a friendly welcome from Sandie and Toby the puppy. Shown to our room, this year we had the non en suite, still our own shower room, just two steps across the landing, the shower was great! The room was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Sandie's... More

What a gorgeous cottage with lots of history - and a fabulous welcome from Sandie and Toby the puppy. We stayed in the bedroom without ensuite - still a private bathroom but just across the corridor - no problem at all. Lovely breakfast - gooseberries, homemade granola, homemade jams - what more could you ask for ? My husband loved... More

I felt right at home at this charming and tastefully decorated B & B. Sandie is the perfect friendly and helpful host. I spent 3 nights and wish I could have stayed here for a week. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Sandie's attention to detail makes all the difference. Sherborne is the most beautiful and interesting historical village... More

Excellent hospitality and Sandie (& Toby the puppy) made us feel very welcome. Room was simple but had all that we needed for our stay and bed was extremely comfortable. The full English Breakfast the following morning was excellent and set us up for the day, If you are looking for a B&B in Sherborne you won't go wrong booking... More

Charmingly and lovingly renovated B&B. Sandie was a fabulous and very accommodating host. I was initially concerned as the property is situated off the main road, but it was very peaceful by the evening and I had a great nights sleep. Very well located for all local amenities. Breakfast was varied with lots of choice and homemade granola - would... More

BnB doesn't get any better than this. A wonderful welcome, a lovely room with comfortable bed, tea tray with fresh milk, seriously good shower, great breakfast. If you are in Sherborne, don't hesitate, go here. It's an easy walk down the high street to the old abbey and museums and The Green Restaurant is just steps away.
