The house is period, and being run by ex-antique dealers, is fitted with choice pieces of furniture that create a charming feel. Great value room, large bathroom, strong shower. The welcome was helpful and house-rules few. Very helpful and friendly manner. Breakfast was delicious, generous, and the dog delightful. A great little place.

Despite arriving 6 hours before check in the owner met us use a free room to get ready for the wedding we were attending. He was very friendly and accommodating! Supplying us with plenty of tea and coffee as we got ready. The place was clean and the food was good! A very friendly dog as well! Would definitely stay... More

Friendly enough welcome, but while I went away to park the car, my wife was shown to a room that bore no resemblance to any photograph on the website. The squadrons of flies circling the light fitting were dispatched by spraying as the swat could not be found. When asked for decaff tea, the best option was a grubby box... More

Nice bed. Wonderful breakfast. Delicious local food, What more do you want? If you want shy, retiring and discreet staff, standard modern furniture, bright lighting and bland food, go elsewhere. Mine host is somewhat ever-present.

The pictures on both the Bakehouse website and the professional pictures on here are a far cry from what I walked into. I was shocked. It was dirty, unkept, dark, dingy, bits of carpet missing, stains in the carpet that was there, stains on the wall, cup marks on mantel piece, noisy, unable to open the window which would have...

Arrived on Monday and was greeted by Malcolm and Charlie. Malcolm is a great host and made us feel at home immediately. Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed, good food and value for money. If your looking for something different and homely, this is the place for you. We will most certainly be back. Great to... More

We stayed here 05/07/14 as we were attending a wedding in Sherborne. I stumbled across this B&B on my phone and decided it would be a great place to stay as it had brilliant value for money. Malcolm (the owner) is fantastic and did everything he could to make our stay very pleasant (even offering to drive us to the... More

This is the worst place I have stayed in. Clearly going downhill. First room smelt of rotten cabbages, moved to second room consisting of a bunk bed and camp bed. Room was a mish mash of old furniture, floor half covered in wood, sink hanging off wall in the bathroom, bathroom floor filthy. Felt itchy from the time I stepped in... More

sorry this is worst place you have stayed, we do various types of rooms from £20 per night for one night , (to 89 per night for better rooms ) but they are shared accommodation like a hostel and we are reliant on other people being tidy and clean ,sometimes you pull the short straw and end up with pig...

Booked on my phone after seeing the location, once I arrived my expectations were met. After I left I'm convinced this is the best value accommodation I've stayed in, centrally located, good food, great service and cheap. Not sure what people expect for the price but I couldn't ask for more, the B&B is run by a chap who enjoys... More
