"This is a really quaint building incorporating B&B, Post Office, Shop selling lots of local produce and a lovely, unassuming tea room.
The owners could not be more accommodating and friendly, from greeting you with a drink to allowing you to relax in their cared for yet natural garden.
Breakfast is wonderful - anything you want - full english, amazing fresh fruit salad, locally made granola, croissants etc
The rooms are lovely, nicely furnished and spacious, with gorgeous luxury bed linen, lots of different teas and coffees, and complimentary local nibbles - cakes and bars this visit, local fudge and biscuits last visit. The village is ancient and picturesque and the window looks to the chapel next door converted now to an amazing yoga sanctuary/retreat, open to all.
The bathroom is large, beautiful and modern in a victorian style with an amazing range of complimentary toiletries. It's shared with another room.
And lovliest of all, as the evening draws in, candles are lit all over the house - in the hall and landing, the dining room, and in the bathroom - such a lovely touch!
And the bed is the comfiest I've ever slept in, other than my own!
Thoroughly recommended!

"On our holiday in the south of England we found this wonderful village. We planned to stay for one night, but it ended with four nights. The Halcyon Room and the breakfast was excellent in all ways, and the village was very good
base for excursions. The owners of the B & B was outstanding. More generous, warm, caring and friendly people its hard to find.
We will absolutely recommend this B&B to all our friends. Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple.

"My wife and I have just returned from a glorious stay at this wonderful B&B. Set in Picture postcard surroundings, Jan & Rick are the warmest hosts at this quintessentially English country escape.

We headed down for a friends wedding but this wonderfully cosy B&B turned our stay into a really relaxing mini break. Everything is catered for, from the vast selection of Teas and Coffees with locally sourced snacks a real treat. The rooms are intimately and thoughtfully decorated, whether you fancy a read of one of the many vintage paperbacks scattered around or a soak in the deep roll top bath, The Fontmell Village Shop whisks you into a green and pleasant paradise!

I haven't even begun to talk about the breakfast. Jan provides the most glorious spread of fresh pastries, jams, cereals, fruits and yoghurts before treating you to the main event: The Cooked Breakfast. The Full English was certainly true to its name, filling indeed and with all the ingredients from the surrounding area you can taste the many English delights; from the fresh tomatoes to bright yellow eggs and sausages so plump they could burst. All washed down with fresh orange juice and lovely china mugs of coffee.

The Tea-shop has a 1940s feel which accentuates the rural aspect of the place with details and charm by the bucket load. Jan & Rick went far beyond the call of duty in making sure we had everything we needed; far surpassing our expectations and making the entire experience a true pleasure with personal touches throughout.

We went for a wedding but we'll be going back again soon with the thinnest of excuses. Good Job and see you soon!

"We stayed here one night for a nearby wedding, but wished that we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the 'overspill' guest room upstairs but it was still a good size and having a shower/toilet right next door meant we felt pretty self-contained. Breakfast was amazing - a huge amount of food and all delicious. We had our 2 year old daughter with us and the owners were very welcoming of her, giving her raspberries for the journey home for example and letting her go out into the garden to see their cat. Their tea rooms also look fab - though we didn't have chance to try them out! Would love to return and would highly recommend.
