“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

This B&B is as good as if not better than any 5 star hotel. The large bedroom and bathroom was spotlessly clean and finished to a high standard. I had a great nights sleep in the huge comfy bed. A very nice touch is the slice of homemade cake in the room, I had a delicious slice of chocolate and banana cake. The free super fast wifi is fantastic. Carol and Rob are great hosts and I had a nice chat with them over the delicious breakfast freshly made by Carol. I would certainly stay here again and would certainly recommend it as great place to stay.

What a fantastic b & b. Carol and Rob so warm and friendly. Absolutely spotless room. Loved the breakfast and also the fantastic home made cake in the room. Walking distance to great local pub for dinner and bus stop at door for Poole. Thanks for a making our trip to UK so enjoyable. Would recommend to our friends and family for hospitality and value for money.

This B&B is in a class of its own. We only stayed a couple of nights but would certainly return here when next we travel to Dorset. Every thing about it smacks of considerable planning and care. Rob and Carol are very good hosts and the accommodation and food reflect the care they expend to make there guests feel at home. Superb bathroom and bedroom, good wifi and very affable chickens who produce first class eggs for breakfast. Just be aware that you need to turn off Dorchester road by the pedestrian traffic lights since the entrance is not on the main road. No minus points all plus. Thank you both for a very good stay.

This is a fantastic b&b, lovely garden and warm welcome. Loved the wee chicken coop they have here (coop is spotless in case that would put anyone off from staying, no smell). Room was absolutely spotless, to the point where everything appeared to be brand new. Slices of homemade cake waiting on us when we arrived. Breakfast is very flexible, they start serving at 7 and there didn't seem to be a finishing time. Food was cooked fresh, good quality produce. Really can't fault anything, would fully recommend. Owners are lovely and keen to please.

We only stayed one night prior to catching a very early ferry. Carol & Bob were very good hosts & recommended a great pub for an evening meal. Bob even produced a voucher for a free bottle of wine with 2 main meals.
Our room was large with a king size bed which was really comfortable. The little touches like the cake left out for us was thoughtful . The bathroom was large and had a powerful shower with lots of hot water & fluffy towels.
Because we had to leave so early next morning we missed out on the cooked breakfast . But carol allowed us to help ourselves to cereal & toast before we left.
The bungalow itself has been modernised to a high standard & the water feature & paving outside sets the tone for the open plan kitchen / living room inside.
I would definitely stay here again & would recommend it.

Superb B&B with excellent rooms and facilities and the most welcoming and friendly owners. The attention to detail adds further to the stay, such as the welcoming coffee and homemade cake, the homemade cake in the rooms, the luxury bed and linen, the tremendous breakfast... the list could go on.
A tremendous find and I will be staying again when in the area. If anyone runs a B&B themselves, they should stay here to be inspired on how to run a first rate B&B.

Room Tip: The blackbird room was wonderful but I am sure all rooms are equally as good.
