Just returned from our 2nd two night visit - this place is the ultimate in relaxation with the beautiful surroundings, leisurely atmosphere and warmth and friendliness of the staff and locals. We took our 12 year old Labrador and he made himself very much at home - mainly because he was allowed to! We treated ourselves to a ground floor suite and it was lovely to sit in the conservatory area in the morning drinking tea and watching the world go by. We didn't manage to get any hot water out of the shower, but the bath / jacuzzi more than made up for it. Being on the ground floor, we did get some creaking floorboard noise from people walking around above us, so we might go for the 1st floor next time. We went for the dinner, bed and breakfast option, and it was a good decision. The food is excellent and the menu varied. The Poachers has some lovely local walks (the dog was fascinated by the many rabbits greeting us in the morning) and then the Coast is just a 20 - 30 minute drive away - we went to Swanage and Weymouth. The only bad part about the break was having to get in the car and come home - we are already planning and looking forward to our visit next year.
