I have stayed here on several occasions..so perhaps that says something. The accommodation is either in the main house on in the cottage which is a converted garage. My choice is and was the cottage providing space and comfort. The main house rooms as you'd expect are smaller but comfortable non the less. The owners are friendly and will accommodate... More

Stayed here for work locally. Owners were lovely. Rooms were perfect with new shower suite and large tv. The area is gorgeous. Local pub within a couple hundred metres. Would highly recommend! Thank you Poppy . Kevin

The location in countryside is enchanting and peaceful, but difficult to find out if you don't have a satellite navigator. Our room (No. 7) was at the ground floor and did not have a good view, but it was nice and clean. The bathroom was new and spacious, but the room was really too small for an extra-bed (we were...

The room was immaculately clean; the bed was extremely comfortable; the service was excellent. Even though it is advertised as a b&b, evening meals are available at a very reasonable price, and are of excellent quality. The next time I am in the area, it will be my first choice to stay.

My wife and I stayed here for one night at the beginning of August and had a very comfortable time. Our room (Room no.1) was quite small but it had every conceivable facility - large wide screen TV, a powerful shower, comfortable bed and even a small mini refrigerator. We had dinner at the guest house, too. I can still... More

We booked two single rooms, one on the ground floor was like a broom cupboard, no natural air in rooms, could not open windows. Breakfast very disappointing owners clearly trying to skimp, little choice. Would not recommend, poor value for money. How do these B&B get their accreditation,i would award no more than three diamonds.

A group of us stayed here a couple of times in May as we prepared for and ran the Wessex Ridgeway Relay. Jonathan and Poppy were excellent hosts, catering for our team meal the night before the race, and providing accommodation for a number of the runners. They even prepared a picnic lunch for us on race day. The rooms... More

Very clean, ok size room (but would be very cramped with a cot) comfy large bed, but NOT 4 star by any means and not worth £110 when paid £80 for much nicer room and service in pub in Dorset! Poppy trying hard, but odd mix of pictures on walls, laundry lying around during the day, plastic flowers, previous guest's... More
