I’ve only once previously given a rating of 5 for accommodation but Heathcote House thoroughly deserves this.
We arrived on Saturday 18 June 2011 for one night, not through our own planning but having been transferred here by another establishment which was unable to honour our reservation. In retrospect we owe a vote of thanks for this!
The house is impeccably furnished and decorated, with beautifully arranged flowers all over the place; the Teal Room which we were given was large and very quiet and the bed extremely comfortable. The large tub in the ensuite bathroom was inviting after a long day of travelling. But the breakfast the next morning was the pièce de résistance, full of lovely little touches like the fabulous home-made jams and poached fruits from the garden, extremely good home-made müsli and the enormous grilled field mushroom on the breakfast plate. Best breakfast we have ever encountered! It is served in the conservatory, or in the garden when the weather is warm enough, which it wasn't in this instance, but the surrounding views of the garden are totally delightful and calming to the senses.
Should we ever again require accommodation in mid-Dorset then Heathcote House will be our first choice.
