“"Best B & B ever".”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

My friend & I toured throughout UK June/July so we had many to compare by. Stoneleigh Barn was delightful. Smoked salmon on the breakfast menu! Large, clean airy rooms. Very modern en suites with immediate hot water. Pubs close by for evening meals, free wifi. & a wonderful host & family who made us feel right at home...will definitely be back. Well recommended. 5* rooms, service, location.

I stayed for 2 nights in July and had a very warm welcome to this very beautiful B&B. The decoration and style is to a very high spec and I definitely got a strong sense that Torunn knew what service meant and tried to ensure that she made my stay the best it could be. Breakfast was also wonderful - I love food, but even for me there was just so much choice and the eggs were fresh from her chickens! My only issue was that the room and bathroom were not cleaned after the first night. If I had stayed for longer I would have mentioned something. Location was a few minutes drive to Sherbourne and pretty well located for drives in and around the beautiful county.

Room Tip: All of the rooms looked as though they were decorated to a v high standard. I stayed in a blue room...

We stayed on 30th June for one night in the turquoise room it was beautiful, clean and very high standard. We had a very warm welcome said we would be late as we where visiting friends in Sherborne there was no problem on time and Torunn made sure we had cold water in our room for when we arrived back. We did not have breakfast but was offered a very wide range if we wanted it. It is set in a quiet, beautiful part of the village and was one of the best night sleeps. When we visit Sherborne again there will be no hunting for somewhere to stay as we found the perfect bed and breakfast just 5 mins down the road. Thank you Will Definitely recommend and return to this stunning place.

We stayed for the night of 16th June at Stoneleigh Barn. We found it as we needed somewhere near to my brother in Sherborne. The B&B is about 5 minutes' drive away from Sherborne, so perfect for us. We stayed in the Turquoise room, which is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the welcoming touch of the home-made fruitcake and a cup of tea on arrival.

Free wifi was also a lovely touch.

We had the most amazin night's sleep and breakfast the next morning kept us going all day.
Torunn was incredibly welcoming, with nothing being too much trouble. We wholeheartedly recommend and will certainly stay there again next time we need accommodation near Sherborne.

Stayed for 3 nights in the "Orchid Room". David and Torunn are excellent hosts, nothing too much trouble, very helpful and informative of the local area. Rooms extremely clean and high standard decor and furniture. Great breakfast, high quality will keep you going for most of the day! Lovely little touches all around the house. Highly recommend and we will return.

We stayed here at the end of May for the weekend as we were visiting family in the area for the first time. The news owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much bother for them. The breakfasts were great, Torunn was very accommodating to my fussy 3 year old's needs! Lovely rooms, lovely garden, and Sherbourne is a gorgeous town. Will definitely be recommending, and returning.

A warm and inviting B&B with great amenities. Recently refurbished under new ownership, helpful and only too pleased to help. Fantastic beds, that send you into a deep sleep.
The best lemon drizzle cake as complimentary in the room. A full on breakfast, catering for all needs and appetites,with fresh eggs from their own chickens!
Definately worth a stay, in an area that allows you to escape from the busy life, and only minutes from Sherbourne.
