The Abbey House, as the name suggests, is part of the old abbey complex in Abbotsbury. It was wonderful to be a part of this amazing site and be able to walk out onto the hillside and onto Chesil Beach. An easy stroll into the village too for a good supper at the Ilchester Arms. The Abbey House welcome and... More

I stayed at the Abbey House with my partner at the end of September for two nights and we wished that we could have stayed for longer - the setting and house itself are so beautiful and relaxing that it made it very tough to leave. Jonathan and his staff are so charming and hospitable, they make perfect hosts. The... More

Beautiful rural located guesthouse but close to many areas & things to See & do. Loved the local history & surrounding countryside . Lovely room & quaint village. Easy to get too, but so restful. Loved exploring the Dorset region so much history

I visited here a few weeks ago with my partner, it is such a quaint beautiful village and the staff here are so welcoming and friendly. Bed was really comfy and great value for money! I would highly recommend if you want a nice night away with your partner.

I'm reviewing this from the viewpoint of eating lunches here, rather than as a hotel guest, so disregard the stars I had to leave for rating the rooms etc.. I visit here several times a year for lunch in the gardens with family or with friends - because the setting is idyllic and the views overlooking the vast mediaeval barn... More

We stayed for four nights at this excellent B& B which is situated in an idyllic location just on the edge of the village and close to the Abbotsbury Swannery. The room and ensuite had recently been renovated to a very high standard and the delightful views from our room would be hard to better. The breakfasts were excellent and... More

An immaculately kept place in a beautiful location. Why do TripAdvisor want us to write more than this - I still have another 80 characters to go and I have said it all. Will they edit my comments out?

We live locally, but regularly walk near Abbotsbury. This is such a great place to call into for a simple lunch. The staff are always friendly and the food is always tasty in a non pretentious way. The garden is so pretty and the view exceptional. If we didn't live so close we would definitely come here for B&B.
