“Great lodge to stay in Shaftesbury”
Reviewed August 19, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Very nice accommodation for family, there were 8 of us and it was large enough for us all. The lodge is very well equipped with outside space for the kids to run around. Very nice and quiet,
Nice touches with welcome fruits, bread, tea and coffee. Thanks to Linda for looking after us,
The lodge is not far from Shaftesbury town and supermarket. We all had a great time staying here, would definitely recommend it.

“Superb lodge first class accommodation.”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed in the Mulberry Lodge. The attention to detail was second to none. We were welcomed by Linda, Paul and Nicky and made most comfortable. Welcome items such as fresh granary loaf, hot cross buns, fresh basil plant, juice, tea, coffee, butter, milk. Even dishwasher tablets and wash capsules, foil and cling film provided to get us started. The lodge was spotless and so tastefully furnished. We met the owner Dawn who was warm and friendly and our booking was handled by Catherine and it was a pleasure to book. Nothing was too much trouble from everyone we met. Lovely walks and a pretty lake in the grounds. Close to all tourist places in Dorset. Would return without hesitation. Thank you.

“Lovely lodge, definitely recommended”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a fabulous week staying here with family. The staff were all lovely and more then helpful if we needed anything, but we had no problems at all. Lodge was lovely and clean, with great facilities and kindly left some essentials to get us started. My daughter loved that they left teddies in her bedroom and a bowl of sweets for her too! Good amenities near by with supermarket about 10 minute drive away and lots of amazing attractions with an hour away. We found the pricing very competitive compared to others we looked at and loved being able to sit on a lovely little bench next to the fishing pond and relax! Would recommend to anyone and when we visit Dorset again this is where we will be staying! Thanks for a great British summer holiday! :)

“Extremely happy with our stay”
Reviewed November 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

It was great to find accommodation that was perfectly clean with a great welcome. Every detail thought of with cakes, fruit, milk, bread and eggs. Really well positioned for Shaftesbury and Gillingham. The location was lovely and quiet with lots of space for the kids to run about.
The service from the owners was great, even dropping off all the stuff we left behind at a nearby relative.
We will definitely be using them again.
