We stayed with friends in this beautiful B&B in the middle of Beaminster. Hazel was very welcoming, and cooks a great breakfast. The cottage is very comfortable, and would be very cosy in the winter, with a wood-burning stove in the lounge.

A fabulous little self contained cottage just behind the main square. Spotlessly clean, cosy, comfortable twin beds (there were only 2 of us but we had the full use of the cottage) and a hot shower (with an amazing selection of shower gels with tempting scents, such as Eastern Promise and Cashmere moments!) Although a bit a squeeze there is...

Lovely cottage, with great facilities. Wonderful breakfast and helpful/friendly host. We felt welcome and we were even given an area to park our two bikes safely. Restaurants and pubs nearby which included an Indian restaurant. Lovely area for touring. Planning a return trip next year.

A gem of a B&B at the heart of this historic village. We booked both bedrooms and so had the whole cottage to ourselves. Beautifully updated and with a large kitchen/dining room and a very comfortable sitting room, with wood burner ( which must be lovely in the winter) Hazel cooks your breakfast to order, which was very good and...

Spotlessly clean, beautiful cottage. B&B or self catering for longer stays. We just booked twin room but had use of sitting room and kitchen. Just sorry we couldn't stay for long. Owner Hazel really helpful and welcoming. Loved the flowers.

The Courtyard is the most charming cottage you could wish to stay in. It has a most comfortable sitting room, breakfast kitchen and 2 very pretty bedrooms. It offers everything you could possibly need and is the ideal base from which to explore the Dorset countryside and coastline. Hazel is most attentive and charming hostess, our only regret was the...

Hazel is avery generous hostess who goes the extra mile for her guests although in our case it was at least 7 miles. The home is very comfortable with very well appointed rooms and touches that you wouldn't find in a 5 star hotel. Hazel helped us out on two occasions and I could not have been more appreciated. This...

This is better than any hotel or B and B you will find for miles. Efficient booking, comfortable, charming, homely and a wonderful welcome from Hazel - who also cooks a great breakfast! Car parking easier and closer than it looks. It really is the best...
