Highly recommended

4.4 on April 18, 2013

If you are looking for a rural retreat, this is perfect, while not being too far from a great pub and the town of Yeovil. Susie and Martyn are excellent hosts. I've never been moved to return to a B&B before, but I'll definitely return here and do some touring round Dorset.
