“Another fantastic stay at Munden House”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

We have stayed at Munden House on a number of occasions now, and every time has been excellent. The accomodation & food are both first class and we have recommended it to a number of our friends. We look forward to our next visit !

Colin and Annie, the owners of Munden House, are delightful hosts. Our room, the garden and meals were all excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our week at this B&B. A great base for walking and exploring.

A warm welcome from the new owners, Annie and Colin, followed by a delicious home cooked dinner, made the perfect end to our short break away. We stayed one night and wished we had had time to stay longer! Beautifully decorated house and lovely gardens - even the dog and the cat were friendly and welcoming. Colin and Annie are friendly and attentive hosts and their son was very helpful with the breakfast orders! Superb breakfast and clean, comfortable rooms. Definitely recommended.

Just returned from a 3 night break here. All I can really say is tht it is beautiful, clean, comfortable and a great find in the lovely North Dorset countryside.
This is more than a normal B and B, the garden is a lovely place to relax and throw few balls for the soppy dog, the room clean and wonderfully prepared plus the food cooked to perfection.

We have just returned from a truly magnificent few days in Dorset staying at this wonderful place. The hosts, Colin and Annie could not have made my wife and I more welcome, and the room was excellent. The whole place has a great atmosphere and is to be recommended to anyone. Truly a gem.

We spent one night at this lovely B & B in the heart of Dorset's countryside. Our room was very comfortably furnished and had a door opening onto their beautiful garden where we had the pleasure of meeting Cassie their border collie but alas we didn't get to meet Sausage the cat during our visit. We enjoyed drinks in the guest sitting room and then a delicious three course dinner in Colin and Annie's elegant dining room. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we highly recommend Munden House … btw, message for Annie's daughter … that film we were discussing in the kitchen that we couldn't remember the name of was Something's Gotta Give.

I spent two nights in this truly unique B&B in the heart of some of the loveliest English countryside. My room was extremely comfortable with everything you can wish for. Spotlessly clean bathroom and linen and plenty of hot water. The guest sitting room and dining room are very comfortably and tastefully furnished with antiques that fit in perfectly enhancing the atmosphere of the house.
Anne and Colin make the perfect hosts and ensure your stay is a real home from home experience. Anne's cooking is a taste of true home cooking and keeps clear of the usual run of the mill type menu by discussing what you would like to eat well beforehand ensuring an excellent meal using only the best fresh ingredients.
I would highly recommend this lovely place (too nice to call a B&B) to anyone wishing to travel to the area.
