Frances, our host, greeted us on arrival and offered to make us tea. The Gables is a gem of a house, full of character, charm and lovely architectural details. The William Morris fabrics are the perfect complement for its style. Our room was the Pink and Rose - it was spacious and beautifully presented. The bed linen was, as promised,... More

Our room,The Bamboo Room was very pleasant and spacious over looking the garden. It was a 10 minute walk into Bridport and the lovely old house has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The breakfast was excellent and our hosts very congenial and helpful. Altogether ,just what you need for a relaxing stay.

I recently stayed at The Gables with my wife. Francis was an excellent host and very accommodating. We stayed in the Blue Bamboo Room which was lovely and spacious. A really comfortable bed and plenty of choice of beverages to chose from on our tray. My wife and I have been walking the South West Coastal Path and The Gables... More

The hosts were very helpful and informative before my stay, and welcoming on arrival. Although the room was lovely and very spacious, there was no wardrobe, and the bathroom (which I knew wasn't en suite when I booked) was across a rather large landing, from where other guest access their rooms, so I would have felt a little bit awkward...

The hosts are very welcoming and make staying there a pleasure. The breakfast ingredients are sourced locally, and provide the best B&B breakfast we have had. The traditional solid... More

Welcomed with tea, homemade cake and a smile! Lovely room with view over garden and open countryside within walking distance of all Bridport has to offer. Delicious breakfast comprising locally sourced foods. Excellent hospitality from a friendly host.
