“Bad Experience”
Reviewed 9 April 2008

We arrived to find the owners had double booked us - their 3 guest rooms were already occupied by other guests. Instead of telling us when we rang to say we were almost there, they waited unit we'd arrived & then put us up in their own bedroom for 1 night.

The guest rooms are lovely but they've clearly done up the guest rooms before they start on their own.

The room we stayed in was dusty, childrens clothes / nappies etc.. visible, photos on walls of children / people, own toiletries in bathroom.... we felt very uncomfortable, it was creepy staying in what was very clearly someone elses bedroom.

They have a large dog which they told us usually sleeps on the bed with them - consequently the room also smelt doggy.

We'd travelled to the Burngate Farm from Lancashire & it took hours to get there. We were both very disappointed when we arrived, I tried to find us somewhere else to stay but everywhere was booked up.

They even charged us the full rate for the night we spend in their room!

The other 2 nights we stayed in a proper guest room as another couple had checked out. These 2 nights were fine - room lovely.

The B&B is located at the top of a hill, its a good 20 min walk to the nearest pub & I'd guess at least 30 min walk to the coast.

  • Liked — Nice beds

What a gem! Can't believe there are not already hundreds of reviews for this B&B. The only reason I can think is that the owners are relatively new to the property (about 18 months I believe). The bedrooms and bathrooms have recently been renovated and are absolutely faultless!
There are three double rooms available (of which I believe one can be converted into a twin room). All three rooms are beautiful and it would be hard to pick which is the best! We had the attic room which was massive!
The bed was extremely comfortable and hard to get out of the next morning! All the bed linens were of high quality as were the towels (which there was an abundance of!) There are tea and coffee making facilities (Fairtrade products) in all rooms, televisions and books to read during your stay.
The rooms were spotlessly clean, lovely and warm on horribly cold and wet October day and it was so peaceful and quiet.
The breakfast was out of this world! Absolutely delicious! We had a huge choice of what to have from full English, kippers, porridge, cereals, home-made bread for toasting etc etc. We didn't need to eat again that day!
Perfectly situated for visiting all the local attractions including Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Tyneham and Lulworth Castle is literally just down the road and well worth a visit.
The lady that runs the B&B is so friendly. Really made us feel at home in her home. At only £60 for the room for the night this was such a bargain! We will definitely be staying here again!

  • Liked — Peace and quiet, the decor, the breakfast, the service ... I could go on!
