We stayed here for one night as attending a funeral nearby. Very friendly welcome, warm cosy cottage, perfect for us. Delicious home cooked breakfast in the morning with all produce from the garden or local suppliers. Sandy was very kind, interesting and interested, and her dog was so sweet and friendly too! Would love to stay again for longer and...

Stayed here mid-June for one night following a wedding reception at Sherborne Castle. It's a lovely house with a beautiful garden, and everything you'd expect from a quality B&B. Off-road parking is a welcome bonus. We received a very warm welcome from the owner, Sandie (and the gorgeous black lab, Toby!) The location is great - just a few minutes...

A beautiful B&B - everything perfect - charming room, warm friendly feeling to the whole place, excellent bathroom with everything you might need, delicious breakfast ..and a delightful owner who has clearly put a lot of thought and generosity in her B&B. This is the sort of place you always hope you will stumble across with so many really nice...

Although we had just a one night stop over, we were given a very warm welcome on a very wet and blustery day! Sandy our hostess, could not have been more friendly and helpful providing us with a wealth of information relevant to our visit to this lovely Town. The room was very comfortable with amenities not often found in...

We have children at school in Sherborne and have been visiting for the past six years. We stay in a variety of hotels, pubs and sometimes B&B's, depending on availability and price. However, after spending two nights at Cumberland House, I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else. We loved everything about our stay. Sandie, the owner and host...

It was remiss of me not to review this wonderful establishment sooner. The landlady is very warm and welcoming and made us feel quite at home. The room and bathroom were immaculate. The toiletries and towels were of a 5 star standard. My only gripe, and there is nothing that can be done because of the size of the room,...

Lovely hidden little B&B would definitely recommend. We stayed in the first bedroom, very good couple of nights sleep in snug bed linen. Our bathroom was across the landing, not a problem, (robes provided), modern, clean with a fantastic shower. Plenty of towels provided. Fantastic choice for breakfast in the morning starting with fresh fruit followed by a very tasty...

after last years stay with Sandie, we decided to stay again this year. We had a friendly welcome from Sandie and Toby the puppy. Shown to our room, this year we had the non en suite, still our own shower room, just two steps across the landing, the shower was great! The room was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean.

What a gorgeous cottage with lots of history - and a fabulous welcome from Sandie and Toby the puppy. We stayed in the bedroom without ensuite - still a private bathroom but just across the corridor - no problem at all. Lovely breakfast - gooseberries, homemade granola, homemade jams - what more could you ask for ? My husband loved...
