Excellent accommodation and Dorothy made us very welcome.
So many steps. Having had a major operation it was difficult, especially having to go outside and up steps to breakfast. Having to pay by cash.
Great private stay with amazing views and great breakfast on the veranda.
The rooms are quite close together (only separated by a door). But not a major problem, especially as we were staying with friends.
Would make a very good base for a few days. Excellent breakfast.
Dorothy is a wonderful host, very hospitable looking after her guests. Great breakfast and brilliant location made this a lovely break for us, would recommend. Special thanks for providing emergency toothbrush!
No shower, minor complaint in grand scheme of things.
A clean room with a very comfortable bed, .ideal location in the centre of town and being looked after very well throughout our stay.
Best beds and thoughtful extras - more breakfast than you could eat
excellent room with comfortable bed. After having been out to the Steam Fair and soaked and up to knees in mud what a joy to come back to a warm relaxing room. Hostess very attentive and we would come again
Paking can be a problem no facility at The Old Farriers.
Excellent hospitality, very good location, comfy bed.
that you were in the middle of the town but b@b bed rooms and breakfast was like being in the county host very friendly very quite at night so sleeping no problem
no tv in the room we had but other room did car parking not the best lucky weather was fine if it had rain it would have been a problem
Beautiful location. Very welcoming. Good breakfast. Convenient to sites.
Access difficult with luggage. No close parking.
Dorothy is very hospitable and the facilities were clean and comfortable. Great breakfasts, a stunning view of the Blackmore Vale, a town centre location but quiet and relaxing stay.
Great hospitality from a lovely host. Excellent breakfast. Lovely home made cakes provided free. Fantastic location and views!
the whole experience was wonderful , my sister and I came back to see family . The location is fabulous only 2 mins from Gold Hill , the bedroom/shower room is also fabulous , bed really comfortable . Dotti perfect host .Bedfast delicious . Hopefully will be back really soon .
nothing - maybe the sun didn't shine enough!
View was wonderful, accommodation well kept and tastefully decorated. Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast and good host.
Some people may miss having a TV, but this didn't bother us.
A beautiful home with 2 rooms giving lovely accommodation and an excellent breakfast on the terrace. You could just sit and look at that view. Dorothy was the perfect hostess so I would highly recommend The Farriers.
Nothing - honestly!
Location, facilities, breakfast, views, landlady.
everything. Right from the start Dorothy made us feel welcome and the room was lovely. nothing was too much trouble.
the fact we were there only two nights
Friendly welcome Superb breakfasts Beautiful views
Nothing we did not like
The location; stunning views. The host; Dorothy made sure we were well looked after. The local pub; more good views, good beer and good food.
Well the weather wasn't brilliant but that was possibly beyond Dorothy's control!
Bit hard to find, but once there....excellent venue, friendly hostess, superb breakfast
Sarah was a lovely host who cooked a great restaurant quality breakfast. She left us to our own (and the place is really well set up for doing your own thing). Great place to stay, especially if you're looking for somewhere scenic to stay before heading to Gatwick.
A cozy and comfortable room with a great terrace with amazing view over the Dorset countryside. Even the possibility for a full fresh English breakfast on the terrace in the sun (weather allowing)
We liked its central position and the beautiful view from the rooms. Excellent breakfast and friendly, very pleasant owner.
The very dark approach to the property which we would have been unhappy about if alone. More lighting in the area would have helped.
The room was excellent - bedding, toiletrie, towels, wifi, warmth of room . The cup of tea on arrival was most welcome and the breakfast was very tasty
Very thin walls - we could hear the people staying in the other room snoring and in the bathroom !
