We spent 3 nights at this lovely old Inn tucked away in rural Dorset with our two Irish Setters. The staff could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. The whole enterprise seemed to be run with calm precision by Natalie and Richard’s team and our stay was a delight from

I would strongly suggest ringing the Inn to find out and also to discuss their available room options as each one is very individual and vary in size and furnishings. They are very friendly and helpful and the Inn is charming and well run. The food and wine.... superb! They are dog friendly which attracts a number of people to stay there. Hope this is helpful!

Dog friendly
Definitely a dog friendly place. They are made to feel very welcome. Just a couple of points though: I believe that one of the restaurant rooms is a dog free zone for those who don't appreciate animals when they are eating. The other is that there is a great walk nearby but it is in a deer park and if your dog is prone to a spot of deer chasing, its a long way on a lead!!!
