We stayed 2 nights at the Countryman Inn. It is in a great location for Monkey World, which was the main reason for our 500 mile journey, and Bovington Tank museum.
We were allocated room 6 which was clean, tidily maintained and much larger than we had anticipated. The ensuite is a bath with a shower head attachment. It is a very old building and the ceiling and full of character. The food was excellent, good breakfasts and we ate both nights in the restaurant. It was extremely busy on the Saturday night.
The locals are friendly, as are the staff. Nothing was too much trouble for Scott the barman or Peter the owner, who injects his own brand of humour into conversations which we found to be very funny. A special thanks to Peter's son Patrick, a very nice polite young man who went out his way to tell us of other local places of interest such as Tyneham Village. He took the time to ask us how we enjoyed Monkey World and engaged us in conversation along with some locals. You just don't get such a personal welcome in larger establishments.
We thought the Countryman Inn was an excellent, quietly and conveniently located base for our 2 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we would not hesitate to stay again.
