My husband and I spent two happy nights at this lovely old inn. It really is a wonderful find. Our hosts couldn’t have done more for us and went out of their way to make us welcome. Our room was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean....More

Pleasant food and a very friendly family focussed pub! There is a genuine sense of openness and enjoyment that pervades everything about the Saxon inn. We will visit again as the welcome is always so genuine.

Delightful place to stay in every way. Immaculate room and bath. Andy the chef was wonderful preparing very good food. Highly recommend to others. The location was convenient to good spots in Dorset, yet it was peaceful and quiet.

Thank Patricia M

No not as yet. We have now been up for sale for a number of years but as yet no sale. We do not expect it to change hands quickly. Peter & Helen. Owners
