The room was clean and very comfortable with all the usual facilities TV, Iron, Kettle ect. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding with good service. There is plenty of parking available. Would highly recommend... More

We had a three nights stay at Lancers House with our two daughters. We had very nice rooms with good beds. The owners Nik and Jayne are very friendly and kind. The breakfast-room is cosy (French style) but we missed the croissants ;-)

We were driving down to Dorset for a short break and decided to stop over near Shaftesbury. The Volvo satnav had a meltdown and took us across country from Reading. Nightmare trip taking 30 minutes longer than necessary. Arrived feeling a bit fed up with life. Spirits lifted during check-in with an upgraded bedroom with dual aspect at the front... More

Stayed here at the end of June for 4 nights whilst on a work trip. It's just so lovely. Beautiful surroundings, lovely rooms, great breakfasts and Nik and Jayne are superb hosts. We will be back again next year.

We cannot thank Nik & Jayne enough for the fantastic stay we have just had. The attention to detail and the little extra's in the room truly made it a lovely break. The beds were really comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Thanks again for helping to make our anniversary truly special.

We stayed at Lancers House for three nights R & R after visiting family further north. We were delighted with everything, from the extremely comfortable bed and the clean charming bedroom, to the beautiful breakfast, all made from home grown produce. This family is making a huge effort on behalf of their guests to ensure that they have a pleasant... More

For the second time we have had a wonderful time staying at Lancer's House with friends. We enjoyed our last stay as a foursome so much that we persuaded another two couples to join us this time and the eight of us had a great few days. The winning quality of this amazing place is that nothing is too much... More

We booked for a get together with friends. We all had lovely quiet rooms and very comfortable beds. The rooms had everything we needed with lots of thoughtful touches. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent with everything homemade that could be, all grown either in the garden or nearby. The hosts were welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much... More

It's the small details that let Lancers House down. It's the broken light bulbs in the corridors, the slightly dirty carpets in the rooms, that small patch of creeping mould in the bathrooms, the smell of somewhat damp bed linen, the terrible water pressure in the lukewarm showers, the extension cords in the bedrooms, the giant plastic room keys, the...

Booked for anniversary weekend. Cosy room - a double bed which my partner found too small - he is 6 4" (and too soft - although i was v comfortable). Very friendly with locally sourced and homemade fayre. Visibly free range hens - and eggs. It is an easy drive from Wilton/Salisbury and Shaftesbury They have a lovely kitchen garden... More
