A dreamy property situated in the quiet countryside - from the warm, inviting welcome to the deliciously indulgent breakfast, Munden House offers a cozy atmosphere and relaxing place to stay. Our cottage was beautifully appointed, with sumptuous bedding and elegantly understated decor. Our hosts couldn't be more accommodating, from restaurant recommendations to booking taxis to Sherborne. We will most definitely... More

This is indeed a top quality B&B hidden in the countryside a short drive from Sherborne in Dorset. We stayed for two nights and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The room was immaculate and the whole feel of the accommodation was one of homeliness. We would highly recommend Munden House and will return if we... More

The owners were very welcoming and the rooms are just so comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The breakfasts are delicious with home made jams and marmalade and fresh eggs, tasty local bacon and sausages. The whole of,our... More

Clean, comfortable, good breakfast in a calm dining room. Hostess, Annie welcoming and friendly. We had a very good night's sleep in peaceful surroundings. Munden House is well positioned for Sherborne with its magnificent abbey and castle.

Travelling alone with my one year old so the fact that Dairy Cottage was warm and the cot was already made up was fantastic and that the highchair was ready for him at breakfast made my stay much easier. A splendid gem of a place where the owners could not be more lovely or kinder. Our cottage was divine, the... More

I was lucky enough to book all the rooms out at Munden House for my wedding. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was simply stunning and our guests were all thrilled with their rooms. Munden House is beautiful and set in incredible grounds in the Dorset countryside. Our hosts Annie and Colin were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble... More

We stayed here for one night recently (to break our journey to Cornwall). This is a high quality b&b where everything has been thought out with care and attention to detail. We stayed in the Chesil Room which was fantastically appointed - really comfortable - a haven after a long drive down from northern parts. Great freshly cooked breakfast (eggs... More

I had business in the area for three nights. I was able to have their full and excellent breakfast at an early enough time each day before work. The room was warm and comfortable, and lacked nothing, and had a good private bathroom, and a good TV set. Parking outside was easy. My hosts were chatty, pleasant and helpful, and... More

We were made very welcome by the stand in hosts and shown to a delightful room overlooking the garden for our 3 night stay. There is a slight old fashioned air about the furnishing and ambiance of the place which we found pleasing. Breakfasts we excellent including some home grown raspberries and we always left for the day feeling that... More
