A lovely old house in the midst of the ruins of a medieval abbey. Add to that views of sea and hills and an ancient tithe barn! Then add luxurious rooms with ultra-comfortable beds and two comfortable arm chairs ( so often forgotten in B and B's ). Following that add extremely welcoming hosts who create a relaxed and friendly... More

This is a must if you are anywhere in the area within a 30 min drive, you won't be disappointed. Being quite an active person myself I find it very easy to enjoy a new experience within a one hour walk or drive every time I go back. Every food item I have ever eaten from here is incredible (breakfast,... More

This is our second stay here and we suggested to our friends we stay here as it was so nice last time. We were not disappointed as it was another lovely stay. Jonathan and Maureen are a delightful couple and very welcoming. The place is spotless and the food well presented. Our friends were very impressed and will also come... More

My Daughter and I, stopped here for the first time, despite visiting Abbotsbury on many occasions, for an afternoon tea. As we approached we felt like we were walking into someone's private garden - but found this to be the garden of The Abbey House. Beautifully kept. We went inside to enquire as to whether they were open for afternoon... More

Abbey House scores top marks for everything we look for in a B&B - hospitality, comfort, cleanliness and tranquillity. The fact that it is located on the site of an 11th century abbey gives it added charm and interest. The B&B itself is the old Infirmary, giving great character to the rooms - our son's bathroom used to be a... More

I stayed here several times over the last few years and it is the nicest location and accommodation consistently for me in the UK. I love Dorset, and in particular Abbotsbury, and most of my frequent visits involved a stay at Abbey House and/or dropping in for their fabulous Cream Tea. I had lunch there once too, which was also... More

From the moment we walked in we felt at home in this cosy, warm and welcoming family run guest house. My husband and I stayed two nights in St Cathrine's room which was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The evening meal was superbly cooked by Jonathan, the owner, and seved by his daughter, Natasha, a lovely girl. We slept very well... More

Have a real problem knowing how to do this excellent establishment justice ! From the welcome we were given on arrival until our departure from this family run guest house ,we really enjoyed our stay, albeit short (the next will be longer). We did book ahead tho at short notice, and were very lucky to get a room, The Abbey... More

If you want rigid floors and straight walls, then book into a Premier Inn. But if you want an atmospheric experience in a centuries old, but spacious, impeccably clean and comfortable accommodation, then try Abbey House, you won’t leave disappointed. Abbey House has an idyllic location, set in a pretty little village, amongst the ruins of an 11th century monastery... More
