Very pleasant informal friendly greeting by Sandie who was wonderful throughout our stay. We had the en suite room, the room was comfortable pleasantly furnished and spotlessly clean, with a few hand made items. The house is interesting and does go back a long time and the conversions have not removed the character of Sandie's home. Breakfast was great with... More

we stayed for two nights in this wonderful house .Breakfast was beautiful home grown fruits, freshly cooked breakfast and home made preserves and jams. The room was very clean and comfortable and sandie makes you feel very welcome. It is close to the town and a short drive to the coast I would definitely recommend it and am going again... More

Sandie is a warm & welcoming hostess in a wonderful 17th Century character refurbished & modernised house which is like home from home and a stones throw from the town centre which has alot of history. Secure parking to rear of property taking you down the wonderful garden path. This is a character B&B so enjoy and relax in the... More

Lovely little B&B at the top of the high street in Sherborne. Stayed for 1 night only but would have happily stayed for longer. Good breakfast with a great selection of cereals and jams. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

We were booked for one night only. The location suited us well. But be warned. If you arrive by car, you have to enter at the back of the property. There IS a place to park: turn into Priestlands Lane, and at the top of the lane fork left. The parking spot is the third on the left thereafter. Entrance... More

This was indeed a lovely place to stay, and the hostess looked after us very well. But beware that the room does exactly what it says it does - the room we stayed in did indeed have a "private shower room" but this was down a corridor, and the room is not en suite. Liking our privacy, we wouldn't have... More

The history of Cumberland House goes back many centuries, but it has been thoughtfully transformed into a spacious, clean and comfortable place to stay, with just a couple of oddities. One cannot park a car in front of Cumberland House, even to unload, because the pavement is several feet higher than the road. The parking area is behind the house... More

Sandie is a fantastic host - she couldn't have been more welcoming or accomodating and she makes a great breakfast (including wonderful home made jam). The rooms at Cumberland House are comfortable and nicely furnished. This does have the nice feeling of staying in a home as opposed to a characterless hotel! We really enjoyed our two nights in Sherborne... More

It was a return visit to the Cumberland house as we had such a good time last year there. The breakfasts were just as good as previously.The bed was really comfortable in there was minimal noise from outside considering its location on Greenhill. We were there for the Jubilee celebrations weekend and the shops were bedecked with red white and... More
