They invited us into their lovely home which is full of character and gave us delicious home-made scones, most welcome indeed! The bedroom is self contained and very spacious with a huge bed which was... More

We stopped at this B&B for two nights. Our room, attached to the back of the main house, had its own front door. This gave one that extra bit of privacy. Access is via the back garden and not through the house. Once upon a time the room was used as the dormitory for apprentice wheelwrights. It is self contained... More

Wheelwrights was the perfect base for our 7-day walking holiday in Dorset. Sue and Nigel provided a warm welcome and fantastic breakfasts that fuelled us on many long walks. Nigel's books on Abbotsbury helped us make the most of exploring the village. Abbotsbury has an excellent sub-tropical garden, swannery, craft shops, tea rooms, and eateries. The dark night skies and... More
