So nice to find a shining beacon of accommodation in this beautiful Dorset town. A very cheerful welcome from the owners. Parking is great, clean as a whistle and very comfortable. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. Generous tea making facilities with an "all you can eat" biscuit tin, heaven.
