As an account manager (Sales Rep) within the Southwest i frequent an awful lot of B&B’s, and hotels alike. I can... confidently say this is without a shadow of doubt one of the most beautiful venues in the country, i stayed here for a single night with a colleague of mine whilst completing a shopfitting at a local store of mine, the price included breakfast for 2 rooms was very reasonable also.A beautiful secure premises, with great parking, lighting and access, the farmhouse itself is stunning, old fashioned yet modern, and homely! Breakfast was made fresh to my request and Paul was an incredibly accommodating host, i cannot praise the staff, and this establishment highly enough!The room i stayed in was beautiful, the carpet lovely and thick, with a soft luscious pile, tea and coffee making facilities with complimentary biscuits, the shower was powerful, towels heated on the towel rail and the bed was comfy too, would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area.read more

A must stay if you are in the area or en route to the West Country. Large farmhouse with rooms on the second floor. All... rooms are beautifully fitted out & are very spacious. Each has its own en suite which is of high specification. We stayed in the garden room; lovely decor, huge dressing room & a very good shower. The bed was extremely comfortable & we had a very peaceful sleep. Lots on offer at breakfast & a decent coffee machine offering all the favourite's. Go try it; you won't be disappointed.read more

A really enjoyable stay. The Woodland room is beautifully furnished and very spacious. The small table and chairs... provide a lovely place to write a postcard or read a book, whilst enjoying a hot drink. The bed was very comfortable. In the morning, there was great choice of food and drinks. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. I can thoroughly recommend.read more

Hands down one of the quaintest little spots I've ever stayed at! Paul and Francesca were so sweet and accommodating.... They personally cooked me breakfast and even offered me a ride to where I was working in the morning! My room (the blue twin suite) was decorated beautifully and it was overall just so sweet and cozy. I will definitely be back if I am ever in Dorset again!read more

The Story of Lodbourne Farmhouse

Paul and Francesca King
purchased the house in November 2015. Paul had previously been the care taker
of the house under its former ownership besides running his own property
refurbishment business. He is also a great cook! Francesca is a registered
nurse with a background of a variety of organizational and hosting skills.

The house had undergone some
serious alterations in its former use and was in need of some sympathetic

We decided that the house
needed a new purpose and after 3 years of hard work we have made it suitable to
offer Bed & Breakfast. It is in an ideal location in the town of
Gillingham. Walking distance and close to shops, restaurants, a train station
and only 3 miles from the main A303 trunk road.
