“Our own Thatched accommodation!”
Reviewed November 26, 2009

We had stopped for a scone at the café (lovely food, all freshly baked on the premises), and mentioned that we were looking for accommodation, so it was serendipitous. We were only the second guests to stay at this newly refurbished double (or twin, the two twin beds zip together to provide an absolutely huge double bed with no perceptible join!) room, with its own entrance through the garden at the back of the cottage.

Our hosts were very helpful and informative about the village: Nigel has written one or two books about the village, copies of which are on hand. All the fittings were new and very high-spec, the room was warm, very private and extremely comfortable, and breakfast (in the café area) was excellent. We stayed for three nights.

We picnicked in the gardens one of the evenings, it was glorious. Abbotsbury has a very mild microclimate (hence the local subtropical gardens) so its worth going any time of year, really.

Please note: mobile phone reception is non-existent in the village and is best accessed at St Catherine's Church, on the top of a nearby hill. The internet is best accessed at the local pub (free). There are no street lights, and some of the kerbs are feet high, so take a torch. (We were offered Nigel's!)
