“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

On a recent trip to Dorset, we had the good fortune of staying with the Bongiovannis. From the moment we arrived, we knew we were in good hands and our stay would be memorable. Everything we could ever want was laid out in their charming sitting room, which doubles as the breakfast room for the morning repast, including a TV, comfortable couches, kettle and a small fridge for snacks in between meals. Your every need is cared for by Jane and Angelo with warm smiles, as well as good information about the surrounding area. We couldn't recommend it more highly!

My wife, 2 boys and I spent a great weekend with Angelo and Jane in their lovely cottage. As a base for a weekend it couldn't be better, with easy access to Studland through to Poole and Bournemouth, as well as further west. The village itself was a real surprise; it's small, but beautiful, with a lovely stream running through it. There are also a couple of great local pubs, best of which is probably the Cock & Bottle Inn in East Morden.
Jane and Angela were lovely hosts, really made us feel welcome, and we will definitely be back!

Angelo and Jane were the perfect hosts to our overnight stay in their lovely home. They were extremely welcoming on arrival and their kindness continued throughout our stay. Our breakfast was plentiful and Angelo is a magnificent cook. Jane provided us with some invaluable local tourist information on where to visit
I was visiting the UK from Australia and wanted to explore Dorset. Appletree Cottage was in an ideal location. Highly recommended to anyone traveling in Dorset.

Angelo and Jane made us very welcome. We had a double bedroom with exclusive use of the bathroom, toilet and a living room that doubled as a breakfast room and sitting room. Food was plentiful and there was a constant supply of tea and coffee with fresh milk that was kept in a fridge. There is an excellent pub down the road at Almer - the World's End. Also a very enjoyable walk down to the stream and the church.

Superbly comfortable, spacious and charming accommodation with excellent service and hospitality from Angelo and Jane. As well as a delicious breakfast with fruit, yogurt, croissants, brown toast and great muesli - with much more to choose from including a 'full English' - we were treated to a tea tray and biscuits on arrival the previous evening. A great find which we will use again if in the area. We would certainly recommend this B&B.

Good welcome from Jane the proprietress, who offered us cream tea on arrival. Sadly not able to partake. The room was big, with a large bathroom and separate toilet en-suite. Fantastic home cooked breakfast next morning, and when we commented on the quality of the eggs,we were given half dozen. Lovely thatched cottage, quite simply one of the best b and b's we have ever stayed at. Worth every penny!!!

Room Tip: They have two rooms, a double en suite, and a twin. However, they only use the double unless a group...

Angelo and Jane were wonderful hosts who made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into their home. Scones, jam and clotted cream awaited us when we arrived. We had sole use of the upstairs space with our own lounge and dining area. Just like an apartment. Breakfast was excellent and filling. Recommended B+B in a very nice area of England.
