The location was just ten minutes walk from the railway station and ten minutes walk from town. The room was excellent and so was the service. The host was so very helpful even taking time to run us to catch a train on departure. We would love to stay again.

Although I did not have the pleasure of visiting this Hotel I feel that anyone who books a room with them to be extremely cautious. I booked a room for a break over the new year.

We stayed in a self contained chalet in the grounds of the house. Beautifully furnished and lacking for nothing. Breakfast was in the main house in a lovely dining room. The above and beyond feature of Bay Tree House was that it was the last night of our walking tour before we returned to our start at Cerne Abbas. Gary...

I had an overnight stay at this B and B. when I took my son to Dorchester for a hospital appointment. The rooms are all well appointed and the breakfasts adequate.

What a gem this place is. We were welcomed by friendly host and he couldn't have been more helpful. We usually stay in the town but luckily hotel was full so we chose the Bay Tree at half the price, and it was a lucky choice. My room was really comfortable and warm with gorgeous furnishings, great breakfast and a...
