Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Huge room with ensuite bathroom. Coffee and tea making facilities and fridge are available in room, and a simple breakfast is on offer if requested. Our home with lovely walled garden is 300 years old and backs onto a park. Easy walking to town centre (5 mins) and to trains and buses ( 15 mins). Please note there is no parking at the house, but some free street parking and municipal carparks nearby. Double sofabed can be set up for two further guests, £15 per guest.

The space
We've worked hard to make this rambling old house into a welcoming family home, with a huge farmhouse style kitchen at its heart and filled with curios from our travels. We are vegan/vegetarians and keen walkers, happy to recommend local eateries, great Dorset countryside and coastal walks or beaches.

Guest access
The room is on the third floor with two staircases to reach it. There is a large en-suite bathroom and fridge and kettle etc in the room. Guests can enjoy our large garden and use the washing machine in the utility room downstairs, if here for a longer stay,

Other things to note
The sofa bed in the room can sleep extra guests - great for kids but can also accommodate two adults. There is an extra charge of £15 per night per person for guests who use the sofa bed.

Hello! I'm an ex-English teacher now studying and working on various, mainly home-based projects. I live with my lovely husband Jem, who runs his mindfulness business from home, and my incredible mother-in-law, who, though in her late seventies, grows wonderful stuff in our large garden and allotments, as well as working part-time in a charity shop. Our two adult sons are both living and working in London. We also share our home with a very gentle and lovable dog - a small grey lurcher. For many years, we lived and worked abroad as teachers in Botswana, Portugal, Brunei and Taiwan, but we fetched up in Dorset in 2004 and have been here ever since. We love the peaceful pace of life here and being within reach of stunning countryside and coastal walks, and beaches for swimming is bliss...
