Part of the former Abbey, Abbey house survived the time and is still surrounded by some remains of the original domain. Everything there speaks peace, quiet and beauty. Perfectly located in a truly pittoresque village, near a children's farm and a stone throw from the swannery that welcomed Anna Pavlova in 1920 for her rehearsal of the Swan Lake, Abbey... More

The Abbey House is easily missed, being tucked away on the path leading from the village car park to the Swannery. But what a find. We descended on them for a late lunch accompanied by grand-children (starting at 3 months) and they could not have been more welcoming. The youngest was protesting and needed feeding so they found a quiet... More

We had a perfect stay at The Abbey House, the accommodation is superb with views over the ruined abbey. The proprietor is charming (he said not to forget that he was also handsome!) and everyone went the extra mile to ensure our stay was memorable,for,all the right reasons. Highly recommended.

Just stopped by for a late light lunch. Friendly welcome and service. Nice full crab sandwich and a Dorset Ale in the garden overlooking the old abbey barn. A cold and overcast day - but still quite pleasant. Looked quite warm and cosy inside and I would certainly consider staying here when next in the area.

My daughter and I arrived exhausted after a very long day in Oxford followed by a meandering path to the Abbey House, courtesy of my navigation system's adventurous spirit. Our spirits were lifted immediately when we were greeted by Jonathan and Maureen, who are the kindest and most accommodating hosts. The idyllic postcard setting made us feel like we could... More

Excellent friendly service. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea just lovely. Crab sandwiches with a good glass of wine sitting on a sunny terrace, the best ever. The spotless rooms are charming. Interesting views, I even saw a llama! Excellent value.

I visited with my family for a catch up over afternoon tea and we all had such a lovely afternoon! My parents have stayed here recently as a B&B and had nothing but praise for the people, location and food. They weren't exaggerating, it was beautifully scenic and we had an amazingly fresh and tasty afternoon tea in the colourful... More

Stayed here Friday to Sunday for a birthday treat. What a fantastic property with truly wonderful hosts. Accommodation was spotlessly clean. Stayed in room 1 which had fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and Tythe Barn/Childrens farm, which was directly opposite. There is no noise and the peace and tranquility is just what we wanted for a weekend break. The... More

It always amuses me when we 6 leather clad bikers arrive at a venue - such as the abbey house - and see the faces on the other guests enjoying their cream tea, lunch etc. those faces soon relaxed when the owner and the waitress recognised some of our group, giving us a warm 'welcome back' greeting. The grounds overlooking... More

We stopped in for morning tea having walked up to St Catherine's Chapel in the mist & wind. Staff were charming, chatty & helpful. Coffee was strong just what was needed, cake & scones were yummy. Definitely worth a stop and if you are looking for a B&B I suspect you will be well looked after.
