Lovely accommodation, delicious breakfast, all were very welcoming and our dog was welcome too in the cottage-annex. It would have been good to stay longer and make use of more of the facilities. We will definitely visit again.

Very comfortable and welcoming. Made to feel very welcome. Breakfast excellent - particularly the home made muesli! Just an overnight stop to facilitate appointment in Sherborne. We will use again when next in Dorset.

A dreamy property situated in the quiet countryside - from the warm, inviting welcome to the deliciously indulgent breakfast, Munden House offers a cozy atmosphere and relaxing place to stay. Our cottage was beautifully appointed, with sumptuous bedding and elegantly understated decor. Our hosts couldn't be more accommodating, from restaurant recommendations to booking taxis to Sherborne. We will most definitely...

This is indeed a top quality B&B hidden in the countryside a short drive from Sherborne in Dorset. We stayed for two nights and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The room was immaculate and the whole feel of the accommodation was one of homeliness. We would highly recommend Munden House and will return if we...

Clean, comfortable, good breakfast in a calm dining room. Hostess, Annie welcoming and friendly. We had a very good night's sleep in peaceful surroundings. Munden House is well positioned for Sherborne with its magnificent abbey and castle.

Travelling alone with my one year old so the fact that Dairy Cottage was warm and the cot was already made up was fantastic and that the highchair was ready for him at breakfast made my stay much easier. A splendid gem of a place where the owners could not be more lovely or kinder. Our cottage was divine, the...

I was lucky enough to book all the rooms out at Munden House for my wedding. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was simply stunning and our guests were all thrilled with their rooms. Munden House is beautiful and set in incredible grounds in the Dorset countryside. Our hosts Annie and Colin were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble...

We stayed here for one night recently (to break our journey to Cornwall). This is a high quality b&b where everything has been thought out with care and attention to detail. We stayed in the Chesil Room which was fantastically appointed - really comfortable - a haven after a long drive down from northern parts. Great freshly cooked breakfast (eggs...

I had business in the area for three nights. I was able to have their full and excellent breakfast at an early enough time each day before work. The room was warm and comfortable, and lacked nothing, and had a good private bathroom, and a good TV set. Parking outside was easy. My hosts were chatty, pleasant and helpful, and...
