Warm welcome from Sue and Nigel who are charming and lovely hosts. The room is very comfortable and clean and breakfast in the lovely dining room was a treat. Sue and Nigel cannot do enough to make the visit a real pleasure, in their beautiful home. Thank you!

I'm not sure that I can add anything that hasn't already been said but as a fellow bed and breakfast owner, I could be accused of being more picky than most. However, there was nothing to fault. My friend and I received a wonderful warm welcome from Sue and Nigel. Having spent the day walking the coastal path, we really... More

This lovely b&b is run by lovely people! Both Sue and Nigel are so warm and welcoming, and immediately make you feel at ease and really welcome. We stayed two nights this December and had a great visit. The room itself was spotless, and comes with TV (small), en-suite bathroom (lovely and warm and beautifully fitted) and there is also...

Just returned from a four night stay at Wheelwrights fulfilling a long held wish to visit the places nearby which we passed through for years. Abbotsbury is a delightful honey stoned village with, mostly, thatched roofs and a perfect base to explore locally and for day trips out. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts. The room was... More

The previous reviews talk of the room and amenities...all true and well worth the visit...but what makes this above average/stellar are Sue and Nigel...hosts extraordinaire! They will see that your visit is exceptional and they are so very helpful. They are obviously warm and caring people and it shows! Be sure to try some of Sue's cookies too...wish I had... More

We spent a night in this apartment three days ago and it was one of the most positive experiences we've had in our holiday travels throughout the UK. The room itself is separate from the house, so has its own entrance through the garden, and there is ample parking space ( unusual in Abbotsbury ). Nigel and Sue Melville, are... More

You're too kind ! We enjoyed welcoming you and chatting with you, and we're delighted that you liked the room and the "little touches". Thank you so much for such a glowing recommendation, and we hope we'll meet up again next time you come back to Abbotsbury. Sue and Nigel More

Booked Wheelwrights for an overnight stay on our return from Jersey. We didn't arrive until early evening as the ferry was delayed and were greeted by Sue and Nigel and invited into their sitting room for coffe and the most delicious scones, jam and cream. Very interesting people to talk to and nothing was too much trouble. The bedroom was... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. Lovely location, wonderful breakfast. Having your own separate entrance was ideal. Very large and comfortable bed. Sue and Nigel could not have been more helpful. Certainly would stay again.

What a delight this was! To arrive in a beautiful, unspoilt 18th century village and to be greeted so warmly with cream tea was just the start of an extremely pleasurable stay. The accommodation is very comfortable and in a quiet location. We were able to read amongst the flowers in a fine garden. The next morning we were given... More

Wonderful B and B with knowledgeable, friendly hosts and your own thatched cottage in their lovely garden. Just as other people have described it. Would definitely stay again in this delightful part of Dorset.
