My sister and I stayed in Holt Cottage for a weekend as a friend was getting married. It was a lovely place with amazing scenery and lots of friendly sheep. Lovely breakfast and lovely couple - very kindly leant me an ironing board one morning to save me from creases. They were also very kind about my hideous hangover and... More

Unfortunately, we won't have the opportunity to stay as the owner has just cancelled our reservation because of a party their neighbour will throw that night - although we insisted we do not mind noise. The location was ideal and photos enticing for the christening we will attend (as godparent). The owner called to tell me of the party but... More

When our neighbours forewarned us of a very loud party for their sons wedding, there was no alternative but to cancel this ladies booking and find her a lovely nearby alternative with old friends who have just started a B & B. I am sorry to have received one bad review after six years, from someone NOT staying but if... More

When our daughter got married in May this year we needed somewhere to stay that was close by, quiet with space. We run our own business so we would need internet access as my husband was bound to work, just before, during and after the wedding!!! As with many families nowadays, ours is manically busy with changes to plans occurring... More

I can concur with many of the comments made about this upmarket B&B; can thoroughly recommend it. We were travelling as two couples so the two suites were ideal; we were able to sit in comfort and privacy in the upstairs room’s sitting area. Touches I liked were real milk for the tea and coffee in a useful fridge and... More

We have just spent an excellent weekend in one of Annabel and Richard's two apartments on a quiet country lane about 5 miles from Sherborne. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable with a cosy sitting room and a glorious bedroom looking out onto rolling countryside. Annabel and Richard could not have been more discretely welcoming and we enjoyed two... More

Had a lovely weekend at Holt Cottage, fabulous tasteful accomodation in the ground floor appartment, Richard and Annabel were very friendly and accomodating and served the most wonderful breakfast, fab creamy scrambled eggs! The beds are too die for - so soft and comfortable and the views just amazing, A very relazing place to stay and one to return to.

We booked this B & B on recommendation of another owner. Richard and Annabel rent out a separate cottage, either as two single apartments or one house. We stayed downstairs and it was spotlessly clean, ample space and facilities and the garden and views were wonderful. Totally secluded and peaceful. Breakfast was fab, taken in the main house with the... More

We stayed last weekend and left totally rested. Annabel and Richard are delightful hosts - nothing too much effort. The upstairs apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and has lovely views. Super king size bed has a wonderfully comfortable mattress and crisp white linen. All top quality - superb value at the price. Homemade scones and clotted cream on arrival were... More

My husband, daughter and I were warmly greeted by Annabel and Richard to the attractive separate cottage. Our daughter had the down-stairs suite - huge bed in pretty room, separate bathroom with shower over, and small sitting room with tv etc. We were upstairs in a lovely suite with ensuite shower room and large sitting room with stunning views.

What a delight! This charming cottage, separate from the main house, offers a wonderful space to spend a romantic weekend, a week’s holiday, or just a nice place to spend the night. There is a lovely sitting area with comfy sofa, chairs, TV, coffee making facilities and small fridge, a pretty bedroom and good size bathroom with a fine selection... More
