Just to be perfectly clear at the outset, this review is for the 'Gardeners Cottage' to the side of the main house. It is tucked away to the right of the big house and is a perfect hideaway untroubled by other guests. You have your own car parking space outside the cottage, but barely need to use the car as...

Our room at the front was very comfortable with a chaise longue and a couple of chairs and a table. It was here that Frances served us tea and... More

After being shown to our room which had fantastic views, we were served coffee and cake in the lounge. The en-suite bathroom was both clean and spacious with a fabulous walk-in shower. Breakfast time at the Gables was nice and... More

We were greeted by Frances and shown to our lovely room which looked out onto the front lawn, we were then treated to a welcoming tea with Dorset apple cake. The room was exactly what you would expect from a high standard bed & breakfast, a wonderfully comfortable super king size bed which did not want to let go of... More

A delightful comfortable and stylish house which made for a relaxing stay. A wonderful pot of tea and cakes on arrival followed by a full english breakfast the next morning completed a perfect break. Many thanks.

Me and my partner stayed at The Gables for the weekend as we were in Bridport for a Wedding. The location of the property was superb (everything was in walking distance) and the house itself was very nice. Frances and her husband could not have been more accommodating and they make a fantastic breakfast! While it was our first visit... More

The cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable. There was a large garden that the children could run about in and it was in a great spot within... More
