“Simply Stunning Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Perfectly run by a great couple. Always there if you need them, but quietly available in the background. Very helpful of hints in the surrounding area to visit, and have a really nice sense of humour!! Very attentive staff. Great rooms, beautifully kept and comfortable. A genuine jewel, which must just simply be visited to fully appreciate its true charm.!!

Having read reviews of Munden House on Tripadvisor we decided to book an overnight stay en route to Cornwall, and were not disappointed. We booked 2 rooms, as we were travelling with friends from Austria, and were delighted with the warmth of our welcome,the comfort of our rooms, which were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. A nice touch was the flask of fresh milk for tea/coffee etc. We had booked an evening meal and Annie cooked us a really delicious meal from locally sourced ingredients, accompanied by a bottle of Italian wine, recommended by Colin.
After a very good night's sleep we were given an excellent English breakfast. Our friends were very pleased with our choice, especially as they don't have anything similar in the way of accommodation in Austria generally.

We hope to return in the not too distant future.

We booked this as a last minute stay to belatedly celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary just for one night.
We received a warm welcome when we arrived to stay in the Garden room which was very cosy .
Ann & Colin served a superb dinner that evening and the atmosphere in the dining room was lovely as it was also for the excellent breakfast cooked the following morning. All food is fresh, either home grown or sourced locally as I understand it and you can certainly tell.
Excellent food, lovely hosts, and a fantastic place to stay to visit Sherborne and the surrounding area.
We could not recommend it more highly and intend to stay there again when the opportunity arises.

We were shown to our room 'Lulworth' which just happened to be the bridal suite. It was very comfortable well appointed room and bathroom (no block soap) good job we weren't just married as the walls were thin we could hear the occupants of the room next door, movement,toilet flushing and talking. Breakfast was very good as were the couple who were looking after us,my only gripe was the playing of the radio around 8.00a.m even on the Sunday, situate immediately below our room. All very clean but we were surprised by the amount of spiders.

Room Tip: Don't choose Lulworth

We were made very welcome at Munden House, the service was attentive but not intrusive and the house has a mellow homely feel, beautifully furnished but comfortable, with a welcoming feel.
The "dairy cottage" that we stayed in was clean comfortable and well equipped in the kitchen, with everything we needed thoughtfully provided and extra little touches like fresh flowers on the table as we entered was very welcoming. Comfortable bed and good shower.
The breakfast was excellent, lots of choices and everything cooked to the guests liking.
The area has a slow pace of life and the countryside stunning, especially the views from the dining room. I would recommend this as a relaxing comfortable place to spend a short break.
No negatives.

This was our first time to Sherborne. The hospitality at Munden House was excellent, they made us very welcome. The room was beautiful, very clean with a stunning view. The breakfast was of high standard (a good tip was given on the perfect poached egg!!) Perfect stay, home from home, 10 out of 10 !

My sister and I have just spent 3 nights here. The room was very attractive and well furnished, the beds were really comfortable with lovely crisp linen and the breakfasts were excellent - especially the eggs, fresh from the hens that roam the garden! The house is in a lovely setting, super views and close to Sherborne which is one of the prettiest towns I have been to. A visit to the Abbey is a must, also the grounds of Sherborne castle are well worth a visit. We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts and found that wherever we went people were friendly and eager to please. Fantastic short break!

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Chesil' which has a door directly out to the lovely garden. En suite bathroom...
