Very peaceful location with all you need for a comfortable stay. Peter was very helpful and has provided great maps to enable you to find all you need. Plenty of space for 2,and a second loo is a real luxury.

The Old Exchange is in a lovely quiet location, with everything that you need if you want to self cater, some good pubs nearby for food if you are feeling lazy. Warm and cozy place to stay.

“A lovely place in rural Dorset”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

The cottage has everything a couple would want. Nicely furnished, great bed, large bathroom with tub, nice sitting room, fine kitchen.

Lots of great local maps, magazines and info. Very helpful hosts if you need anything. The lovely Dorset countryside is all around with a great farm butcher a few hundred yards away and the lovely village of Witchampton near by. An 8 minute drive to Wimborne Minster - a fine small town.

We loved the Old Exchange.
