Lorna and Carl were just so kind and genuine people. They ensured we had a lovely time during our 3 nights with them. Our room was warm and cosy, and the bed was superbly comfortable! The ensuite bathroom was lovely and newly installed to a high standard.
It's a beautiful rural location but very close to all amenities of Gillingham and Shaftesbury.
Breakfast was delicious and offered a great choice. The fresh coffee was excellent too!
Young son Stanley was a great help with our cases!
All in all, a very enjoyable and memorable experience and we would certainly recommend this as lovely place to stay!
