“Attractive bedroom”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The Willows is conveniently situated near Blandford Forum. There are only two bedrooms, I stayed in the upstairs room which is very clean and attractively furnished in blue and white. Carol, the owner, is very friendly and will provide food at lunch time if required.
The main difficulty for me was that the bathroom was a few steps along the hallway, it was Very small, sitting on the loo your knees hit the wall, access to the bath is restricted as the bath runs behind another room! I am unable to use a bath and so had to stand up in the bath and use a shower with a very short hand held hose which was very difficult, anyone taller than I am (just over 5 foot 5 inches) would hit their head on the ceiling.
I also found the staircase difficult as there is no hand rail or safety bannisters on the side of the staircase which in the corner of the living room. The handrail is on the wall side so the other side is completely open.
If you can cope with these difficulties I can fully recommend staying at The Willows.

Room Tip: If mobility is a problem book downstairs.
