We stayed four nights in September and had a lovely time. A very comfortable room overlooking the back garden so it was very peaceful at night and a modern ensuite with everything you would need. The breakfasts were delicious with home made jam, marmalade, muesli and fruit salad. I can recommend Mary's poached eggs! As a host Mary is very welcoming and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend Rose Cottage as a great place to stay.

I stayed for 2 nights at this excellent bed and breakast. Mary could not have been
more helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bedlinen truly superb and ensuite facilities etc. brilliant. The breakfast was also marvellous. Rose Cottage is also well situated a short walk from the centre of Sherborne. Many thanks indeed

We loved our stay at Rose Cottage. Mary is very hospitable and nice. She made us extremely welcome and allowed us to stay during the day when we had work to do. The breakfasts were delicious, and her several types of homemade jam were fantastic! Rose Cottage was very clean and comfortable, and the location provided us with easy access to shops, the abbey, and restaurants. We look forward to our next visit!

My husband and I stayed with Mary at Rose Cottage for a weekend while attending a wedding in Sherborne. We were able to park in the road opposite the cottage.The weather was pretty awful for April - hail storms etc., but Rose Cottage was snug and warm, the bed amazingly comfortable, lovely tea, coffee and biscuits available. Mary was the most attentive host and nothing was too much trouble - breakfasts were scrumptious.

Room Tip: Mary only has 2 I believe, we had the double room at the back, very comfortable

Mary's home is a homely place to stay, and she is a very welcoming and thoughtful host: nothing is too much trouble for her. She provided a delicious breakfast, and is very happy to adapt (e.g. vegetarian option or a lighter breakfast on the day when we knew we were going out for a large lunch). She puts a small jug of fresh milk outside your bedroom door early in the morning so you can make a cup of tea but there is UHT in the room for drinks at other times of day. My Mum forgot to take her hot water bottle (don't worry - the cottage is very cosy) and Mary was happy to lend us one. I would not hesitate to recommend Rose Cottage to anyone wanting to stay in Sherborne.
