Higher Kingcombe Lodge
Ranked #24 of 45 Dorchester B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 28, 2011

Three of us arrived at Higher Kingcombe Lodge on horseback. Andrea had organised a field area for the horses and we felt that everything was done for our comfort and enjoyment. The rooms were spotless - large, comfortable, and very clean. We had breakfast and an evening meal here, and the food was excellent. We rode in through beautiful countryside (we were riding the Wessex Ridgeway) to a friendly welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Andrea, and we felt she was the perfect hostess (her cooking is divine!). We sat out on the terrace in the sunshine watching the trout lakes and our horses.... what more can you ask for? We will go back again!

A large group of us stayed here for a friends wedding that was nearby. All the rooms were clean and comfy, the breakfasts were delicious and timings were relaxed. The hosts were fantastic catering for awkward food requests and in no hurry to turf us out of the dining room so we could enjoy our breakfast. They were really helpful in general and could not have made our stay more comfortable. Absolutely recommend it.

My husband and I are B&B owners ourselves and so are obviously quite picky. We have stayed at Higher Kingcombe Lodge twice now each time with a group of friends for walking trips. Andrea, sometimes aided by her husband Paul, were born to be hospitable and, even better, she is also a terrific cook. Her breakfasts are delicious and, if you ask her to cook you an evening meal, you will not be disappointed. Take your own wine.
Don't expect luxury in the rooms - not fitted carpets but bedside rugs on wooden flooring - but with underfloor heating, powerful showers and a comfortable bed. What more do you need?
The views are over Paul and Andrea's coarse fishing lake, so take a rod if you are a fisherman/woman.
I'm already looking forward to our next trip in the autumn.
