Lovely overnight stay in a beautiful part of the world.
Room overlooked the garden so very quiet and peaceful. Mary was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Bed was very comfortable and well equipped with toiletries, tissues etc.
Breakfast was a real treat with homemade muesli and proper cooked English breakfast - delicious.
If we ever visit Sherbourne again we would certainly choose Rose Cottage as our first choice. Would highly recommend staying.

Mary provides everything for a perfect stay - toiletries, tissues, needle and cotton, hairspray etc - and if you can't find what you need, Mary will get it. Our bedroom overlooked the garden and the bed was very comfortable and the shower particularly efficient.
Breakfasts were superb - loose tea and proper coffee, gorgeous home-made muesli or fruit salad, home-made jams and beautifully-cooked English breakfast.
Mary is very friendly and helpful and a useful source of information about the local area.
Rose Cottage and its owner can't be faulted (and I'm a grumpy retired teacher!)

We spent 2 nights at Rose Cottage for our anniversary, Mary was a wonderful host, welcoming us with a cup of tea on our arrival. Breakfast was superb, the famous museli we had read about was lovely. Mary kindly gave me the recipe... Couldn't fault our room, the bed was so comfortable with all the little extras. If we ever decide to go to Sherbourne again, this would be out first choice for somewhere to stay, highly recommended.

Mary could not have been more welcoming and patient! As a family with 2 young kids, it can get pretty chaotic at times but Mary was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious (especially the home-made raspberry jam). We had a really lovely stay and would definitely go back.

We've stayed at the lovely Rose Cottage for 3 nights at a time, six times this year 2016 whilst studying in Sherborne. Mary has given us a warm, friendly welcome every time and is so kind and thoughtful. She thinks of everything to make our stays perfect. We've stayed in both rooms at different times and have found them always to be quiet, clean and pretty, with everything we needed. The breakfasts are truly delicious and sometimes Mary bakes fresh bread. Rose Cottage blows the socks off any other b&b's we've stayed at by a billion miles! We'll definitely be back for short breaks away from the grind and highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the back garden is prettiest
