We had a three night stay and were impressed with the food, staff and value for money. A great place to stay for visiting all that Dorset has to offer. Great breakfast . Try their Eggs Royale or the full English.

Hi, Foxglove is a lovely super king or twin room. In the stables, it holds a view of the garden patio. It has all the amenities you would expect including a tv. Hope that helps and we will see you soon
