We have just stayed here for 2 nights and loved our comfortable room and delicious breakfasts. Thank you Wendy for looking after us so well and making us feel very welcome indeed. We would definitely come again.

Fantastic stay at Gorse Farm whilst attending a friends wedding in the area. The house was charming. Rooms and bathrooms were spotless. Wendy was a great host and made us feel very at home. Constructive criticism: Breakfast in the conservatory was lovely but we would have appreciated better quality sausages - perhaps something local. Thank you Wendy!

We arrived here very late at night on a cycle trip, and couldn't have received a better welcome from the owners who were friendly without being obtrusive. Our room was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and comfortable and was full of thoughtful touches. It really is a refreshing change to stay somewhere where they've taken the time to think about what... More

Had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful farmhouse. The owner, Wendy, is delightful and totally welcoming. Would recommend to anyone wanting a stay in a rural setting. Facilities are excellent with great opportunities for country walks or bike rides.

I had the extreme displeasure of meeting the husband and wife team of this establishment. They were vile, rude and intimidating. I would not recommend this establishment to anybody. They were unhelpful and very unkind to the point where they asked "if I could read". Needless to say this place I will not be recommending them to anybody.

Wendy D, Owner at Gorse Farm House Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

I was very concerned on receiving this review, as we only have two bedrooms here and it is easy to know who posts reviews. The woman who wrote this review, was an unsolicited caller trying to find another property. She has never been into our establishment or expressed an interest in staying, let alone stayed in a bedroom or had... More

Attractive house, beautifully appointed, in lovely, quiet setting. Loved the sculptures and the bird nest-cam. Very comfortable, large rooms. Welcoming hosts. Delicious and ample breakfast. We have stayed here twice and would definitely return.

A delightful B & B. Wonderful location and extremely comfortable accommodation. Wendy and Lee are welcoming, helpful and friendly hosts. The light-filled double en-suite room must be the biggest I have ever stayed in, with such a comfortable bed and excellent facilities - huge bathroom, sofa, TV etc. Lovely breakfast served in the conservatory. Dorset is a beautiful county with... More

We were looking for an exceptional place to stay, close to Sturminster Newton, but quiet and secluded in the Dorset countryside. Gorse Farm House was the answer to our dreams, with the added bonus of two wonderful hosts. Our family stayed in both rooms, both really confortable with excellent bedding, tastefully decorated with an eye for detail catering to all... More

My wife and I have been staying at Gorse Farm House for several years now and think it’s super mid-Dorset place to stay, in striking distance of many different locations including a number of Nation Trust properties. It’s about a five-minute drive out of Sturminster Newton down a small country lane. Once inside the property gates, the final approach to... More

Excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely spacious room with a very comfortable bed. A splendid location ideal for touring. A jolly nice breakfast with scrambled egg to die for. Would stay again
