The Munden House is unique and pretty and we loved our upstairs bedroom. The entire experience was a 10. The caretakers were friendly and helpful and our breakfast was delicious! The bed and bedroom were beautiful and roomy.

The Summer House is super. Very comfortable, very private. Beautiful views. Wifi and signal weak there tho the owners have tried and continue to improve on it. Both available in the main house sitting room and breakfast room. BTW delish breakfast. Eggs from chickens you'll see in the gardens. Hens, no roosters!

we stayed here for 2 nights recently. Location beautiful. The house was lovely, breakfast wonderful- every effort made to make it just right for every taste. Also worth mentioning was the flask of cool milk available to guests for the in room teas/coffees - nice touch. However a drawback was the noise from the plumbing when anyone in the house...

I am very sorry that the 'whine' from the shower, when it was being used disturbed you. It is a very frustrating problem as it is so intermittent. It will be fine for weeks and then suddenly reappears. Thankfully, it is only the thermostatic showers that are affected and our plumber believes that the noise is down to fluctuating water...

Stayed only for a couple of days in the summer house. We did arrive a bit late but were met by Jeremy who was looking after the place for the owners while they were away. He was brilliant and so helpfull. We joked as we moved the car round that at least the eggs were fresh as he got two...

Our stay was fantastic! Six of us stayed and all had a lovely time. We stayed in the Garden room which was warm, very clean and comfortable. We acted as a central point for the other couples and kept our entertainments away from the other guests. Our hosts (stand-ins for the owners) were absolutely charming, helpful and attentive to our...

We stayed in this little gem of a B&B a couple of weeks ago. The main house is a beautiful thatched cottage with new extensions at the sides to allow more accommodation. We were warmly welcomed by our host and shown to our room. Our room was spotless with a lovely comfy double bed with ensuite facilities. I was very...

We stayed for just one night in one of the cottages. We found the accommodation very relaxing with a comfortable bed and a full kitchen if you decide to dine in. Everything is clean and tastefully decorated. It's not too far from Sherborne which is a very charming village with a lot of history and a castle. Breakfast in the...

For £135 we expected something special but we didn't get it! Only stayed one night but the previous night we had paid £110 for something far superior in quality and service. The accommodation was fine but nothing special. breakfast was good and the gentleman who served the breakfast was attentive and friendly. Apart from the overpriced accommodation we were taken...

Oh dear, I hate a guest being unhappy. It's such a shame that they felt their greeting to Munden House was “bossy and unwelcoming”. I feel our check-in is chatty and relaxed and I am so upset that it was seen otherwise. We are always extremely busy in August and sometimes have nine or ten cars parking in the courtyard....
