5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Our holiday cottage in Cornwall wasn't available for the full two weeks. so we had booked three nights at Gorse Farm, almost as an afterthought, to finish our honeymoon off. Had we known how wonderful Wendy and Lee's B and B was, I think we would have spent the entire time there! Our en-suite room was beautiful, as was the house and garden. The service and facilities were A1 and it has to be said, that the prices are more than fair for the standards we experienced. Wendy is a real pro, but more importantly, She and Lee have created a truly warm and welcoming home from home. Not once did we feel any sense of awkwardness or that we were in the way. Even when we "stayed home" on one of the days, coming and going through their kitchen for regular cigarette breaks in the garden! If the beautiful county of Dorset is where you want stay and you are looking for the best B and B you can find, please take our advice. Ring Wendy and book it now!

Room Tip: There are two rooms,both excellent and both with awesome beds. But the en-suite with the rolltop bat...

We had a wonderful, though all too short, stay at this delightful B and B at the weekend, travelling 8 hours to get there for a fabulous reunion with old friends. Wendy is a charming hostess and everything was done to accommodate our timings and plans. We had the en suite bedroom with the gorgeous roll top bath.The room was spacious and the bed cosy and unbelievably comfortable. Wendy was able to supply a blow up air bed for our daughter so she was thrilled to be able to come too. I had to be torn from the bed but the delicious English Breakfast made to order was worth getting up for. A wonderful corner of England and perfect hosts. I would highly recommend this B and B to anyone. We hope to be back to explore this part of the world next time!

We had an excellent stay at Gorse Farm. The attention to detail is exceptional and the facilitys five star. Due to verious reasons we had to change our booking twice and the hosts were very considerate and we are very grateful to them for this. We would not hesitate to recommend Gorse Farm to anyone and we have high standards.All the of the five star comments cannot be wrong. Thank you a credit to English B and B.

Room Tip: I believe both rooms are excellent.

OUTSTANDING quality B&B. Our room was the en suite one with lovely large bathroom with roll top bath etc. The website photos do not do the property justice.

Spotlessly clean everywhere, with every attention to detail. Could not fault it at all. Lovely welcoming hosts with spot on full english breakfast. Also had bowl of fresh strawberries & blueberries on the table. Can thoroughly recommend to the discerning guest.

Room Tip: The en suite bedroom has large bathroom with free standing roll top bath

Gorse Farm is the perfect place, yes perfect, for a getaway from it all break. When we arrived we had a tea and biscuits on the sunny balcony. Our room was spotless and a very comfortable king sized bed. We had a private, luxurious bathroom with a bath and shower just two steps away. Breakfast was brilliant at a time convenient to you, home made preserves and the marmalade was superb. Cooked breakfast was of your choice. Downstairs was the snug with two comfy sofas and plenty of reading material. All of this in a rural farmhouse with owners that are interested in you and helping you make the most of your stay. Wendy and Lee were superb hosts and their home, complete with lovely flagstones on the floor to paintings and original carvings on the walls, done by Lee. A real gem!

We stayed with Wendy and Lee last summer and I can't believe I forgot to write a review! A beautiful farm with wonderful hosts...close to many attractions and Wendy was most helpful in giving suggestions for dining and sites to see. Our breakfast was outstanding, served in their beautiful sunroom. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, free wi-fi, and overall great. We wished we had stayed more than one night!

We spent last night at this lovely property. I agree with everything positive that has been said by previous reviewers. Nothing is forgotten, even down to hanging hooks in the bathroom. Often little details are overlooked by owners, but not here, everything is made convenient. There is plenty of space to park and Lee's impressive & unique wood carvings are dotted around the property, which gives it a lovely rustic feel, and of course they are all for sale. We will be returning to Gorse Farm the next time we go to Dorset.
