The rooms at the Paddocks are far from fancy, but they are amazingly clean, tediously tidy, and cozily comfortable. The impressive Melbury Hill starts rising from the backyard, and a variety of animals (two and four legged, great and small) graze on and grace the forty acres of pasture land. The real prize, however, is Tania, the gracious B&B hostess...

Tania is a fantastic host, the location is brilliant with amazing views around the b&b and the interior is both super clean and looks great. I work across country and so stay in numerous hotels/ b&bs but this place is certainly one of the best :) and she cooks a fantastic breakfast !!!

Stayed at The Paddocks and loved it! Great room and facilities. Wonderful breakfast and surroundings. Tania is a wonderful host. Even met a baby Guinea Fowl during breakfast. Would definitely choose The Paddocks again when visiting the area. Highly recommended. I mistakenly rated the swimming pool and fitness center below. Not available.

Needed a B&B near relative's home near Shaftesbury and booked three nights at the Paddocks.

Make sure and search out the guinea hens in the yard and venture up Melbury Hill behind the property for a commanding 360 degree view of Dorset. I can't...

Had an overnight stay at the Paddocks in late March 2014, due to a visit to Melbury Abbas for a friends 50th Birthday. The Paddocks is well situated on the A350 near Shaftesbury, and is convenient for visiting the attractions in the South-west of England such as Stonehenge and the Jurassic Coast. On arrival we received a warm welcome, the...
