About the hotel
Accommodation on offer is two non smoking en suite double rooms complete with freeview TV, radio alarm clocks, tea / coffee making facilities and WiFi coverage. As the pictures show the house has a mature country garden with various seating areas where you can relax and take in the tranquil surroundings. In the summer, weather permitting breakfast can be served on the Patio.
Guests also have use of a fridge with a cold water dispenser and their own conservatory/lounge with access to games, magazines, items of local interest and a CD player. For places to eat there are a number of good traditional country pubs nearby serving excellent food. Your hosts will be only to happy to advise and if you wish book a table for you. However if guests wish to eat in with a takeaway meal our Breakfast Room facility is available for this purpose. The house itself is centrally located in the village of Bowerchalke at the upper end of the picturesque Chalke Valley which is part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although it is only a small village it has some notable attributes in that it has been home to Nobel Prize winning author William Golding, Gaia Theorist Prof James Lovelock and Poet Siegfried Sassoon. William Golding is also buried in the village churchyard. From 1878 to 1924 the village had its own newspaper the cheapest ever printed in England as it sold for a farthing and was published locally by the Rev Edward Collett. The Doomsday Book refers to this area as the Manor of Chelke and it was not until 1225 that the name Burchelke first appeared. Prior to the Roman occupation of Britain this area was inhabited by a tribe called the Durotriges and legend has it that the Bowerchalke hamlet of Woodminton was the site of a battle between them and a Roman legion circa AD43. The battle was fought at a place called Patty’s Bottom and legend has it that on certain moonlight nights tramping is distinctly heard and headless horses can be seen.

Sue the host was a very pleasant lady.
The room was good, fine for me, a double room with a double bed. The breakfast was nice, but no fruit juice, fruit or yoghurt on offer, which was a pity as the cooked breakfast was enjoyable.
A peacefull night
Sue made me at home straight away with her warm and caring personality.
Nothing was too much trouble for her. The B&B was tastefully decorated. My room was very pleasant and all rooms had a beautiful view of her lovely garden, which had plenty of sitting areas for guests The room was lovely and quiet. I would definitely recommend this B&B.
