I have been lucky enough to have stayed in this wonderful B & B in gorgeous countryside. On arrival I was made very welcome by Margaret with tea and cookies, shown to my gorgeous double room with magnificent view I woke the next morning too see pheasants roaming around the lawn, with unfortunately, a very misty view of the countryside....

Our Sat Nav took us down the narrow lanes, but a much better route is to come in from Blandford Forum. It was dark when we arrived so no view to be seen, but in the morning the view from the bedroom was glorious with a light mist/low cloud in the valleys and a view as far as old Harry... More

I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Arnewood House and I can honestly say, I look forward to going back in the future. We originally booked the 'Green Room' for 2 days, but then as an afterthought we decided to book an extra day and go a day earlier. When I went onto their web site I could... More

Like several other reviewer I was initially a little disappointed that this was a B&B rather than a hotel, although to be fair this was clear in the details - I just hadn't read them properly. It wasn't the easiest place to find - it in the country down narrow lanes. The advantage of this however is the views, the... More

Had no problem finding this beautiful house. View from our room was amazing!! The setting was idyllic, so peaceful and tranquil. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating, food was fantastic. Fresh laid eggs every morning and local sourced sausage and bacon. Would highly recommend.

We were initially disappointed that this was not a hotel as it appears in the Expedia site. However, once we overcame the difficulty of finding the place - narrow lanes and poor signage- it proved to be a very enjoyable stay. The room was spacious, clean and very well presented with lovely views across the countryside. The hosts, Margaret and... More

Wanted somewhere nice to stay for a short break in Dorset. Found this wonderful guest house and thoroughly our time here. Margaret & Ian were most welcoming and aimed to please. Our rooms were clean and comfortable with stunning views. The swimming pool and hot tub were an added bonus. The breakfasts set us up for the day and Ian's... More

My only complaint was the description on hotels.com was incorrect it was not a hotel but a luxury guest house where I enjoyed the hot tub and swimming pool and stunning views. In the room the bed was comfortable but although no bath in bathroom it was a shower to die for because I love both a roaring hot and... More

Feeling desperate for a break, decided on this B & B, helped along by the really good reviews! Had a fabulous time and felt a little sad to be leaving it behind. What can I say .... We had the master bedroom which was just perfect. The views are just wonderful, and the attention to detail are highly commendable. Margaret... More

We booked Arnewood House because of all the 5 star reviews it got on TripAdvisor and they were all spot-on so we are now adding our own 5 stars. From the lovely warm welcome from Margaret & Ian Thorne, it was all just great. We have stayed in 4 star hotels with less luxurious bedrooms than here and the bathroom... More
