Thank you Colin and Annie for such a warm welcome back. Especially the birthday candle in my breakfast sausage along with the usual vocals.....totally unexpected and i am still chuckling. I look forward to seeing you again next year.

We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was perfect - well appointed, clean and comfortable. with a great breakfast Annie and Colin were quite charming and helpful... More

We have now stayed at Munden House many times during our frequent trips to Sherborne and plan to do so in the future. The standard of decor and cleanliness in the rooms is very high and our family always receives a wonderful welcome from Colin and Annie who go above and beyond the call of duty to help us wherever...

We stayed here this past weekend as part of a wedding party. My fiance and I staying in the Dairy cottage with our boys. From our greeting on arrival to departure on the Sunday the owner's could not have been more helpful or delightful. The Cottage was ideal for us, very pretty and had everything we needed. The breakfast each... More

We stayed for 3nights in the summer house, this was a large wooden building in the corner of the large gardens. It had a small kitchen and bathroom. It was nicely furnished, very comfortable and clean. We were able to park the car easily Breakfast was good I would have preferred my bacon slightly less crispy but had beautifully cooked... More

We stayed 3 weeks ago in Dairy Cottage (this was the only accommodation available at Munden House as we had our small dog with us – the other dog-friendly Cottage being already booked). The house was lovely and tastefully furnished and the garden was beautiful. Colin and Annie were very friendly and hospitable and the breakfast was very nice -... More

Our first impression on arrival at the property was positive but when Annie showed us to our room there was an odour of dirty drains ( the window was open so we thought it may be outside). However, on entering the bathroom, it was obvious that the unpleasant smell was from the hand basin so my husband reported it to... More

COLINFLETCHER, Owner at Munden House, responded to this review

Every effort (by no means “half hearted”) was taken to remove the brackish smell coming from the wash basin in the bathroom. Everything was fully functional at all times and impeccably clean but there was a smell and the water drained too slowly.

We spent just one night at Munden House but found it lovely in all respects. Charming, helpful hosts Annie and Colin, tasteful decor, relaxed atmosphere, beautiful garden. What more could you want (other than spending some additional nights there)?

We stayed in the Summer House for 4 nights for our minimoon. Both Colin & Annie were very obliging and hospitable as our hosts. They have worked very hard to establish Munden House to be one of the leading places to stay in Dorset. The Summer House is tucked away in a large beautiful garden that is free for you... More
