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.

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
