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

I stayed at Arnewood House with my family over the Bank Holiday and found the farmhouse and owners delightful. The rooms were clean, spacious and welcoming. The traditional breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommended. Thank you.

We stayed in the master room, which is very spacious with good quality furniture & fittings. The bed is extremely comfortable with lovely soft cotton bedding. Views from the room are are spectacular! - you can see for miles. Wonderful cooked breakfast (wish I could start every day with one of those!), & the owners are friendly & welcoming -... More

My wife and I stayed here in August and I can't praise the standard of accommodation highly enough. The room was huge with views stretching to Old Harry Rocks and the home made cookies were a real treat. The only disappointing thing was we were attending a wedding nearby so didn't get to spend more time at Arnewood House.
