A stunning home in beautiful, quintessentially English countryside, and a most wonderful host ensure that you will have a truly memorable stay. The host is utterly charming and nothing is too much trouble. Our rooms were delightful, very clean and the beds so comfortable. Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. His breakfasts are legendary using both home grown and locally sourced produce.... More

Without question this is a proper English gem, a stunning house in fantastic rolling countryside. A host who is a proper English gentleman who knows how to make a guest feel very welcome. From the Bloody mary to the breakfast everything is epic in size and quality. The local pubs are fantastic for dinner and Ashley will make great suggestions... More

I stayed here for a weekend with a friend. It is simply one of the most beautiful buildings in Dorset, in a lovely setting. The owner is completely charming, the place was immaculate, breakfast stylish and delicious. I'll stay here again without a doubt. We also happened to be there for a Murder Mystery evening which was amazing.

This is B&B at its absolute best. Comfy beds, the most delicious breakfasts, a manor full of character where guests have their own wing. This area of Dorset is stunning, and the sea is just over the brow of the hill. Ashley provides a very warm welcome. 10/10 - highly recommended!

Stayed for two nights in this splendid Sawdays manor house B&B tucked away in a beautiful rural retreat, far from any crowds, madding or otherwise. Ashley embodies a certain type of eccentric English gentleman, and positively enhanced the stay with his humour and wonderful stories - he cooks a mean breakfast, too! He's very relaxed and accommodating, and makes one... More

A wonderful place in a wonderful place. We stayed in the splendid Balcony Room and Ashley proved to be the perfect host. We had the best breakfast ever and then walked it off by exploring the Iron Age fort on Eggardon Hill - an absolute must for any visitor!

We needed somewhere to stay to recover after Camp Bestival. I found this place on Sawday and it looked nice. This is not a little B&B!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful stone manor house situated on a small private estate, in an area of designated outstanding natural beauty, only minute away from the World Heritage Site of Dorset's Jurassic coast. Each room is stylishly with it’s own character and has a view onto the gardens or stunning architecturally interesting courtyard. There are several choices for breakfast, including Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon scrambled eggs and of course a full English breakfast, all made from locally sourced free range produce. The eggs are laid on site by “the girls” and where possible everything is home made including the bread. Breakfast can be taken in the Dining Room or on the patio overlooking the stunning countryside and in the evening drinks can be had relaxing by the koi ponds in the courtyard. Children and four legged members of the family are welcome. ... more   less
