A last minute 2 night getaway from the madness of London, coupled with the urge to hunt for fossils (!), was a bit mad with the prospect of everywhere potentially being full. However, was thrilled to find The Gables to be the most wonderfully charming and alluring B&B. The house ouzes charm offering an air of relaxation with the acres... More

Having chosen carefully, The Gables did not disappoint, in fact, it exceeded our expectations, due in no small part to the warm welcome and extra touches such as tea and cake served on arrival. Frances and Geraint are perfect hosts and we were free to come and go as we pleased without feeling that we were intruding. The house and... More

The Gables was recommend by our cousin. We absolutely loved our time there and can't wait to return. The owners are wonderful, kind, and caring. Frances took such good care of us and the place is magnificent. Great breakfast, many choices and homemade! The rooms are big and bright and are arranged beautifully. Cost for staying there is extremely reasonable.... More

Absolutely beautiful house and garden, Frances is very friendly and made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in the door. Lovely room and delicious breakfast, tea and Dorset apple cake on arrival revived us after good look around Bridport and West Bay. Do not hesitate to book here, we would definitely return to this fantastic B & B.

Fabulous 3 night break in this beautiful house with a lovely generous sized room - we stayed in the Pink and Rose room which had a very comfortable bed and chaise longue! Frances was very friendly and welcoming and served an excellent breakfast including the full vegetarian! The house is really well positioned for a nice gentle walk into Bridport... More

My family and I had a lovely two-night stay at the The Gables. The room was beautifully decorated, in keeping with the period of the house and accommodated two z-beds for the children, as well as our double bed. The breakfast was delicious and the garden perfect for the children to have a run around in. We walked into Bridport... More

We chose the Blue Room based on the guest house website. Booking and conversations in advance with Frances were very easy and helpful. The room was large, beautifully furnished, light and airy, quiet. Included breakfast was superb, freshly cooked, local produce. The guest house is an easy 10 mins walk to the centre of Bridport, so perfectly located. We will... More

I suffer from fibromyalgia and back problems so 2 major requisites when staying anywhere are a comfortable (soft) mattress and warmth. Having spoken to both Geraint and Frances, they very kindly confirmed that I could bring my trusty memory foam mattress topper and they would leave the bed unmade so I could try the mattress first. As it turned out,... More
