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.

The owner is extremely friendly and accommodating. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. Breakfasts are more than exceptional. The lounge is very large and well appointed. Couldn't ask for more really. Would happily stay again. Oh, and you have to try the home made preserves - delicious!

Nothing was too much trouble, if we needed anything, she was only to happy to help. The cottage is so beautiful, stylish and quirky. Our room was so comfy, cosy and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was very tasty, the fruity,... More

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

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.
