   And for a real treat...
IN DURWESTON, DORSET This little gem of a thatched cottage opposite the village church is
run as a bed and breakfast by its American owner who will go to extreme lengths to make sure your stay is comfortable. There are two rooms that she lets out, The Cottage room and the Garden room. The Cottage room is a sweet room, in
the garden with a small kitchen
area and a shower room with a divinely comfortable huge double bed. The décor is expensive and tasteful. The Garden room to the side of the house has a main bedroom with an enormous four poster bed and a lovely garden view, and a smaller room with a single bed and some kitchen items. Both rooms are stocked with fresh coffee, tea, and all sorts of goodies including a fridge stocked full of yoghurt, meats and other lovely things.
The area around the village is wonderful and if you have a
child at Bryanston, it is the perfect place to stay. Mention my name when booking... you might get a discount! Very dog friendly too.

  Surrounded by picturesque rolling hills, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
   Probably the most sumptuous bed in Dorset.

And for something a bit different...
La Belle Vallee is a charming and friendly B&B in lower Normandy not too far from Cherbourg, Caen, or Saint Malo. It is the perfect getaway for a long weekend and is near to some interesting medieval chateaux and towns. The farmhouse is a beautiful building in lovely grounds down a bumpy driveway about 1KM from Domfront itself. The rooms are charming and the hosts (who are from the UK) are absolutely wonderful. There is a comfortable sitting room where they can give you tea and a piece of cake, and dinner is available upon request in advance.
The food is excellent, all local produce, and breakfast is the crowning glory of a most beautiful selection of breads, jams, fruit etc. This is a B&B where guests can get to know each other over a glass of wine or cognac (on sale at the B&B) and having been there several times I feel that I have made some real friends as a result of stays.
Set in 18 acres of private grounds.
