“Top notch”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Stoneleigh Barn for two nights to attend a friend's wedding at Sherborne Castle which is only a couple of minutes away in a taxi. We had a very friendly greeting from Torunn complete with lemon drizzle cake and a nice pot of tea.

Top notch accommodation, fab full English breakfast.

We stayed at Stoneleigh Barn for one night only to attend our friends son's Christening in Sherborne. It is a lovely property full of character and Torunn is a perfect hostess who made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. All the rooms have been tastefully decorated and furnished. The breakfast was excellent, all exceptional quality down to the fresh eggs laid by their own hens. We particularly liked that children are catered for with their own menu, which was very good even though our nearly 4 year old daughter did not do it justice and Torunn even provided lovely children's crockery and cutlery, which I have not come across before in the many B&Bs we have stayed in over the years. Lovely garden to walk around or have breakfast in on a warm summer's day. We will definitely return, would recommend to all.

Our four day stay at Stoneleigh Barn was exceptional in every way. The house is beautiful with all the comforts one could wish for. We enjoyed relaxing and spreading out in our large and imaginitively decorated room where 'welcome' was spelt out in more than just words. The setting was magical too and the location a perfect one from which to explore Dorset and Somerset. Breakfast was superb - delectable food presented with so much care and attention to detail. But best of all were the hosts, Torrun and David, who made us feel so special and created an atmosphere where we felt we were coming home each day from our daily excursions.
This Bed and Breakfast is exceptional in every way and we will never forget our stay with this amazing couple.

We spent a night here to attend my cousins Golden Wedding Celebrations at the nearby Golf Club. Torunn could not have been more accommodating and she was utterly charming. Our room, the Rose room, was beautifully decorated with a mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a large flat screen TV and a really comfortable bed. My only initial concern was that the shower room although private was not exactly ensuite but across the corridor. However Torunn had thoughtfully provided a dressing gown and this did not turn out to be a real problem at all. In the morning we had a delicious breakfast in the sunny conservatory overlooking the beautiful gardens which unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy. This was an all too short stay in a perfect B & B.

We stayed for two nights in Sept 2012. From the hospitality of the welcome, through the spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated rooms to the spectacularly excellent breakfast, neither my wife nor myself would make a single criticism.

Excellent value for money and I'd like to thank the proprietors for the hospitality they showed in their lovely home.

Splendid. Torrun made allowances for us to check in early and was very friendly. Scenic location, only a £5 cab ride from the railway station. Delicious cooked breakfast the next morning. Room was cosy and bed very comfortable indeed.
