Delightful 'independent' thatched double room (mega size comfortable bed!) spacious en suite, tea/coffee making facilities, TV & dvd, off road parking - ticks all boxes for a perfect stay in Abbotsbury - just when you think things can't get any better, breakfast is served! - lovely selection and perfectly cooked (can visitors really eat that much?) Nigel and Sue are... More

I would not disagree with most of the comments of the other reviews but add the following. During our stay the bed was not made each day and the shower room was not cleaned or the towels changed. We have never encountered this before anywhere. While on the subject of the towels they were very hard and rough. The room... More

We're very disappointed that you were unhappy with aspects of your time with us. If you had told us during your three-day stay about the things you mention in your review, we would naturally have done our best to put them right. Beyond our control, however, is the window which looks over the garden belonging to our neighbour, an elderly... More

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

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
