I thoroughly enjoyed the two nights we spent here. Our hosts Ann and Bertie were most welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious and clean, and the bed comfortable, the shower had good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was lovely and I would definitely recommend this B&B to others.

Fantastic B&B in a sleepy little Dorset village. Easy walking distance to a friendly pub and plenty to see and do in the local area. Ann and Bertie are so welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and we would fully recommend Longpuddle.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in the Piddle Valley, midway between abbey town of Sherborne and the county town of Dorchester, Longpuddle is well placed for exploring Thomas Hardy’s Dorset and the Jurassic Coast. The 400 year old thatched cottage, originally a farmhouse, overlooks the embryo river Piddle which runs through the garden and paddocks. Guest accommodation comprises three spacious tastefully decorated rooms ideal for an extended stay; two double and one twin with colour TVs, radios and hairdryers, both en suite. A third bed can be made available if required. Breakfast consists of local produce freshly cooked personally by the proprietor. There is also a large comfortable guest’s lounge; with a log fire on winter days. This also has a colour television and views over the garden and paddocks. The name Longpuddle was used by Thomas Hardy collectively for the villages of the Piddle valley which has several excellent Pubs serving local food to suite a variety of tastes. The many bridleways offer a chance to see the local wildlife and badger watching is available locally. The delightful village of Cerne Abbas with the famous Giant (The Rude Man) is just a few minutes drive away. Ample off road parking is available ... more   less
