“visit to shaftesbury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Very friendly hosts (fellow Lancastrians) - made to feel very welcome. Room comfortable - lots of little extra toiletries provided (e.g. cotton buds). Good location - short walk into Shaftesbury & can leave car there whille you look around this charming town..

Gave me a useful tip for my route home (using toll bridge near Bath) which saved me some time. Good breakfast and would be more than happy to stay again

Room Tip: Only one single room so I had a twin on single occupancy so may be paid a little more. Contact Diane...

Always nice and welcoming. Nothing is to much trouble with the choice of fresh for tea and coffee in your room . The room was very clean and the public areas too . Walking distance to the town with places to eat and shop .

I was away at a teacher conference and a long way from home. I was made to feel very welcome and had a very relaxing evening in a great room. It was like home from home. The breakfast was amazing too. Will definitely use again if I'm in the area again.

I have had the pleasure of staying with Diane and Ian many times over the last 7 years and have always received the best of personal attention. They both go out of their way to make their guests feel very welcome and over the years I have very much looked forward to going to my 'country retreat'.

I always have the same single room, which is very comfortable and clean, and is equipped with an enormous self-contained shower-room - such luxury for their modest overnight charge!


Several times I have needed them to 'go the extra mile' (when taken ill and when locking
myself out of my car) and they have never failed me.

I unhesitatingly recommend Holbrook Bed and Breakfast, and often do, to anyone who
wishes to stay in the picturesque area of Shaftesbury and the Blackmoor Vale. I cannot
wait until 2014 to return.

Room Tip: Having seen the rooms Diane and Ian have to offer their guests, I know that they are all of good si...

We have stayed here for 2 years - one night only each time - for family reunions close by. Each year we stayed in the family room, which has plenty of space, good facilities and a nice sized bathroom - the shower is very roomy! The fact that we returned this year, I believe, says something, as we would not have done if it was anything other than good. I expect we'll be there again next year.
