“Nicest country retreat ever..”
Reviewed July 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I have stayed in many B&Bs and this has to be the best so far, it really doesn't get any better. The extra welcoming touches I never would have thought of until I came here, a little tin box with 2 fairy cakes, bedside docking station, wine bottle opener, welcoming folder with recommendations for local eateries, fruitbowl, a Mr and Mrs mug in the kitchenette, breakfast menu to fill in prior, the breakfast basket left outside the door in the morning, too many more to list. The room itself is a separate summer-house-like annex, making it all the more exclusive and private, and overlooking a fabulously kept garden with an apple tree and garden birds etc. Our only regret is we couldn't stay for longer, however should we be revisiting the area then this will be our first port of call as we couldn't possibly settle for less now! Observe the photos and see for yourself..

“An absolute gem - you'll love this place”
Reviewed July 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This place is absolutely superb on every level - great attention to detail, really personalised attentive service, beautiful setting, fantastic breakfast, comfy bed - everything you could want. We stayed after our wedding day and having been concerned about getting the right place to stay - luckily we found The Dorm it was simply perfect - thanks Imogen and Steve for really rounding off our special day. I couldn't recommend more highly - if you need somewhere to stay anywhere near the area look no further. Will certainly stay again.

“Fantastic stay at The Dorm! Couldn't recommend enough!”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Myself and my mum recently stayed at The Dorm on our journey from Doncaster to the Emma Bridgewater Factory. It was recommended by an abundance of Emma Bridgewater fans on a Facebook page so I was so pleased to find that it lived up to such high expectations!

Imogen's attention to detail in her decor and presentation is brilliant, and we came home after only one nights stay hoping to come back one day and for longer!

Breakfast was delicious (homemade jams, fruit, cereals and an English breakfast were given to us at our own disposal) and so were the complimentary homemade cake and shortbread that was left in our room.

I can't wait to come back. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

The dorm is a really special gem set in the countryside. I stayed here for business and have had the most relaxing business trip possible. The small details here stand this place out from the rest - Imogen is a fantastic host, and her homemade treats are to die for. I cannot recommend higher!!

“AN ABSOLUTE GEM”
Reviewed November 28, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

As on as we arrived we thought wow. We were welcomed into the dorm by the lovely Imogen, which settled us in. Such a beautiful location and the dorm was perfect. We were welcome by homemade goodies including shortbread, chocolate brownies and apple juice.
Our stay was magical. The weekend we went was my birthday and Imogen made such a wonderful effort In helping me celebrate! (I've never had such personal treatment anywhere else I've stayed)so thoughtful and very much appreciated.
Everything here is quality including the smellies provided, linen and the Emma Bridgewater plates bowls etc.
We had a 3 days in the local surrounding area so to come back to the dorm to relax and be treated so wonderfully by our host was simply fantastic.
Oh the breakfasts are divine and I'll you will leave hungry!!!! (Huge plus here!!!)
Can't wait to come again and highly recommend to anyone considering The dorm as your next getaway.
