My wife and I booked a night at the Cranborne Inn for our 2nd anniversary and it turned out to be a fantastic decision. The inn is set in the idyllic village of Cranborne and offers a good range of ales, lagers, cider and, importantly for an anniversary, sparkling wine/champagne. The food is extremely tasty, well presented and reasonably priced - as is the accommodation for the quality of room. The rooms are all individually named and ours, the Blandford, came complete with a beautiful rolltop bath (at least that is what my wife told me it was called) and locally produced products.
The inn has a lovely country atmosphere with lots of friendly staff, especially the owner, and locals - plus the presence of dogs milling around, sitting by your feet just adds to the experience.
The only negatives (if you could call them that) were the free WiFi not working (but to be honest we loved not being connected and didn't bother to ask the staff if they could help) and the bedroom temperature, which was too hot, but after a bottle of Prosecco between us we slept well regardless.
Would recommend this The Inn at Cranborne highly to anyone looking for a nice country break.
