What a lovely stay! The cottage is in a gorgeous secluded area, with beautiful views out of the bedroom windows. The rooms are cozy and really comfortable, then you wake up to a yummy breakfast, all from the local area too. Be sure to ask for sausages! Lorna is an wonderful host, happy to chat too. We would definitely recommend... More

Having travelled a whole day by car we were welcomed most hospitable by our host. The room was execellent and very well equiped with lots of attention to details for the wary traveller. Breakfast times were flexible and the breakfast itself sumptious. Very handy is the restaurant at the end of the lane (walking distance) which turned out to be... More

Peaceful location in a quiet country lane. Excellent hospitality - so friendly and helpful. We loved sitting on our room's balcony, overlooking the garden, reading a book. Delicious breakfast - loved the freshly laid eggs, homemade fruit smoothie, and home-baked bread. We stayed 3 nights so got a reduced rate. Excellent value.

My boyfriend travelled from Worcestershire to visit me in Dorset so we spent 3 nights in Gable Cottage. Our first impressions were very good as it is situated in a peaceful location in East Stour and the cottage itself has lots of character. Our room was lovely and had a beautiful view overlooking the garden and fields; we were even... More

Second visit to Gable Cottage, taking another couple to enjoy this lovely place and it's owners. This time we slept in the room facing the garden and as it was so hot we left the French windows wide open all night. It felt like a cross between glamping and being in a pretty tree house. We both slept wonderfully well... More

I travelled from Hong Kong with my son and husband around the UK recently and spent two nights in the Gable Cottage B&B. It's situated in an idyllic village which is just a few miles away from Shaftesbury - a historic town which shouldn't be missed! It's only about an hour hour to the Durdle Door, which is another must-see... More

I just rented a room for 4 nights at the Gable Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Dorset for myself and my girlfriend after travelling from South Africa to attend a family wedding. Carl and Lorna (hosts) were great and very friendly. The room we had was very clean and great atmosphere with a quiet surround. I recommend using Gable Cottage... More

I ended a 6-week trip of Britain with 6 nights at Gable Cottage. What a lovely spot! If you want a quiet spot in an unspoiled setting, you can't do better than staying with Lorna, Carl, and their son Stanley in their home outside Gillingham. From this peaceful home, surrounded by birdsong, you can visit Stourhead Gardens and a whole... More
