park farm house bed and breakfast
|4||Self Classified Bed and Breakfast||Ratings explained|
From your bedroom window you look out across paddocks and woods; at night the only noise could be a hooting owl or the munching of grazing horses. We offer one bedroom, which means that you will be the only visitors staying; there is plenty of parking and lawn to walk around.
The house has the kitchen-table and AGA (plus Humphrey, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) at its heart: we like things warm and comfortable without being fussy. For breakfast we offer cereals, fruit, home-made marmalade, plus a sizzling ' full farmhouse' of bacon, eggs, sausages and toast - other cooked options easily available on request, as are kippers.
'Wi-fi' is available and mobile-phone reception is good.
Being dog-lovers we happily accommodate the dogs of our guests; nearby is the 18-hole Rushmore golf-course, set in rolling parkland, while there are plenty of bridle-ways, footpaths, tracks and lanes for riding, walking and cycling. We have half-a-dozen delightful walks that start from the front-door, some taking you to an award-winning pub: in the village there is The King John while The Museum is a half-hour walk to the next village, Farnham. All the pubs are dog-friendly.
For riders (horses and cyclists) and walkers the opportunities are both short and long: there are ancient woodlands, springy downland turf or ‘the high country’ ox-droves with distant vistas. In addition Jasper offers guided walks.
From the house there are a surprising amount of places you can visit within an hour’s radius: to the north there is Bath, Stourhead, and Wells; to the west, Sherborne and Shaftesbury; to south-west Ringstead beach and others along the Jurassic Coast, Hardy Country, Maiden Castle and Dorchester; and to the south and east, The New Forest, Salisbury and Stonehenge.
As for your hosts, Sarah uses her knowledge of paint effects to paint furniture while Jasper works in international flora and fauna conservation: both have travelled widely, including lots of first-hand knowledge of B and B’s both home and abroad.
The Bedroom: Large bright and airy room with views across paddocks to the woods. One double Victorian bed and one single divan bed; while the room is not en-suite the bathroom is just two paces from the bedroom, with guests of the room having exclusive use.
