"Quiet, hidden, rural Paradise."
Admittedly the perfect weather, and evenings spent at the splendid Dorset Opera Festival, helped to make this trip special, but even so, Arnewood House and its owners Ian and Margaret, plus Harvey the benign old Dog, are special themselves. Their warm friendliness, fabulously comfortable, and spotlessly clean rooms that feel like suites, and beautifully cooked breakfasts, complete with home made bread, marmalade and jam, make the five stars well and truly merited, and inevitable. The ultra freshly gathered eggs from the Hen flock are the icing on the cake!. Views, across rolling fields, to the coast are stunning. They even let me gather seeds from favourite flowers!
If, like me, you strike lucky with the weather, lazy days around the attractive pool will be a great temptation. Failing that, the steaming Jacuzzi would make a great ending to a day of exploration. Most Highly recommended.
