Bed & Breakfast

Explore pretty Dorchester, walk the Jurassic Coast; return to this relaxed family home with comfortable rooms, good food and friendly dogs


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Pheasants stroll along grassy lanes, kestrels fly overhead and this stunning stone manor house is a delight. Ashley is easy-going and you have your own wing as well as a private courtyard next to the orangery; take a book and sit by the koi ponds. Bedrooms come in comfy country style; the Rose suite with antique linen and pretty wallpaper is charming. The dining room gleams with antiques, silver and flowers; feast on a breakfast of home-laid eggs, homemade jams and local sausages. Climb Eggardon Hill, visit Bridport and Sherborne; Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast are a short drive. Friendly lurchers add to the relaxed feel.

Fantastic weekend, Ashley and Amanda were so welcoming. Can't wait to go back. 😊

Sharron, Sarratt

You couldn't fail to relax here among the family pictures, photos and memorabilia. It's a big old house but very homely and Ashley and Amanda are warm and fun. Terrier Tipple pretends to be fierce when you arrive but she's only flouncing - her sidekick Skinny the lurcher is as laid back as a bass player.

Nicola, Bristol

Ashley is a thoughtful and lively host. He was concerned about our comfort, and provided us with a superb breakfast of our choice - porridge, fruit, and a full english. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, and whether it was being in the depths of the Dorset countryside and all the fresh air, but we slept like logs. Manor Farm is within a short drive of the jurassic coast, Bridport and Dorchester, and there are excellent pubs on the coast and near Manor Farm who use local in season food, so we had delicious evening meals at reasonable prices. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Anne, Leamington spa

A fabulous B&B, comfortable, warm and elegant, the beautiful surroundings are a bonus. Ashley is great, friendly and easy going. Breakfast was gorgeous, Tipple and Skinny dog even more so. Highly recommended!

Sonja, London

This place is truly one of the best Sawdays. Ashley makes you feel totally welcome. He is very flexible on timings, so you feel completely relaxed. He cooks a spectacular breakfast, and is thoroughly generous in his approach. This is genuinely B&B at its best. Ashley takes great delight in passing on information on the house and village if you ask him - and the surrounding country is spectacular. Over the brow of the hill you can see the sea. Ashley is also very dog friendly, which we liked. The bed was very comfy giving an excellent night's sleep, and we had a wing to ourselves. 10/10!

Max, London

What a lovely place. We were shattered after Camp Bestival and were in need of a comfy bed and a hot bath, both of which we got. Ashley is a welcoming host and a real character - he told us what to visit in the local area and provided us with a fantastic breakfast. The peace was tangible, and we left relaxed and refreshed.
