“Great country escape”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We enjoyed three very pleasant nights at Munden House. Colin and Annie were very welcoming and friendly. They were happy to suggest outings and places to eat. Our dinner in the dining room was superb, with Annie cooking fresh produce from the garden. Our breakfasts were equally enjoyable. We were able to enjoy the beautiful garden during the long summer twilight. Our room contained everything we needed, with a comfortable bed and clean, fresh linen.
The location of the B&B was central and allowed us to explore the countryside and the Dorset coast. We hope many of our friends will enjoy a stay there as well.

Munden House was clean, comfortable and the hosts were welcoming.
We had an evening meal which was good, albeit a little overpriced for what was offered.
The breakfast was good as was the quality of produce. I would recommend Munden House.

The Munden House was such an enjoyable part of our vacation. Annie and Collin were wonderful hosts from the time we booked The Dairy Cottage. Our cottage was very clean and cozy, breakfast was delicious, we enjoyed hanging out in the garden, and playing with their happy dog. We had a fabulous dinner there on one of our two night visit. Very fresh food from the garden. Annie and Collin recommended a wonderful place for dinner in town for the other night, the "must sees" of Sherborne, and ideas for our route to Cornwall. We would have loved to stay longer, as The Munden House (and Sherborne) is a great base for many adventures all around.
My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found this gem.

We have been to Munden House many times before and have always enjoyed the great hospitality of Annie and Collin of their fine country house just outside Sherborne. Very nicely decorated and impeccably clean rooms can't be beaten! From the rooms or the big garden full of flowers enjoy the great views of the Dorset rolling hills or you can simply relax in the sitting room!
Highly recommended!

We stayed in Garden Cottage at Munden House just for one night on our way from Guernsey to Wales for a holiday with two of our spaniels. It was just perfect, had a really sweet feel to it. A lovely location and great for the dogs. Breakfast was utterly delicious. We will be recommending Munden House to friends and family and will be staying again.

Annie and Colin have made Munden House into a superb base for exploring the many delights that Dorset has to offer. The rooms are charming, comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the garden has fine views. The hosts really make you welcome , and their recommendations of restaurants, pubs, cafes, and places to visit are very discerning. The breakfasts are fresh and delicious with local produce (including eggs from their own hens) the beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet with nice extra touches of comfort and charm. We had a fabulous three night stay, and are planning to go again. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I - and our Springer Spaniel - had a couple of nights here and stayed in Garden Cottage.
It was all delightful! The cottage was very comfortable and perfect for the dog too!
The food was excellent - we had dinner both evenings in the lovely dining room. Annie cooked us lovely meals and Colin took a lot of trouble over the wine choice.
They are great hosts, with just the right balance between chat/information and leaving you to your own devices.
We spent the two days doing some walking and it's ideal for that around them and in the Sherbourne area.
Their dog Cassie was very patient with our Bella and they played in the lovely garden.
We would certainly go back!
