We stayed for 2 nights during a visit to the Tank Museum at Bovvington. Our journey was shocking and we were running nearly 2 hours late, but were still met with a warm welcome ( and tea and biscuits). A truly beautiful place with fantastic views, the whole building has been sympathetically restored and we had the use of a comfortable sitting room as well as our en-suite room. It was the hottest weekend of the year and the shower was piping hot - and the towels were lovely and fluffy. Breakfast was top-notch and included homemade sausages and fresh eggs. The place also has so much more to offer with a very pleasant glamping area that looks like loads of fun!!

Can’t fault this B&B and I’ve stayed at loads in my time. Attentive host. Spotless rooms with very comfortable beds. Beautiful location. Breakfast was yummy. If your interested in glamping they run a fab set up, not too commercial and great for families Thank you Joby

We stayed for 2 nights with our young children as we had a friend’s wedding in the area. The place is spotless, comfy and the breakfast was superb. The children even collected their own eggs on Sunday morning. Jo was really welcoming and even took the children for a little tour of the farm! There was a small kitchen and lovely choice of teas and coffee, milk and biscuits laid out for us. We had a wonderful time in a beautiful spot and will be returning next time we are in the area!

Every now and then you come across a gem in a world of mediocrity. This place is one of these gems. Location 7/10. Well of the beaten track and not the easiest of places to find but so worth the effort. (Tip, turn off your sat nav it's gonna lie to you.) if you want peace, quiet and outstanding views or rural Dorset this is the place for you. Accommodation 10/10. We had two large double bedrooms. Spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds. Linen of the highest quality fresh towels and amazing showers. These people keep it simple and uncluttered even down to the well presented guests kitchen. Your made to feel welcome the moment you arrive and that feeling doesn't stop. Food 10/10 Traditional full English that includes bacon, sausages & eggs from the farm your staying on. Good range of more healthy options available. Served in a large comfortable breakfast room. The owners easy going friendly manner only adds to the experience. Price 8/10 Not the cheapest you can find but this level of hospitality is great value for money. There are many other features of this place we didn't get see close up such as the campsite and glamping facilities but they looked well managed.

Views of rolling countryside, animals all around, wonderful setting for a BnB. Joby couldn't be more helpful and her breakfasts are top of the line, amazing hostess. The farm is a little off the beaten track, but still close enough to roads for pretty easy access to places. Clean rooms, excellent breakfasts, friendly hosts. Stayed for 10 days, shame to leave, tells you how good it was.
