What our guests say


Sitting on a hill above the village of Whitchurch Canonicorum – so called because St Candida is the only parish church that still retains the bones of its saint – the cottage is as idyllic as it sounds, but like all good B&Bs, it’s the owner who really makes the stay.

Dave Green is passionate about the area and plied us first with tea, then wine, as he waxed lyrical about big skies, swimming in the sea and “the many little surprises” he’d discovered since moving down from London eleven years ago.

Surprises like Mr Shigeaki Takezoe who runs Hell Barn Cottages near Bridport and offers home-cooked Japanese meals, or the fact that Georgi Markov [the murdered Bulgarian dissident] is buried in the churchyard at Whitchurch Canonicorum. We spent the evening with Dave, moving from his terrace when it got too cold, to his local, the Five Bells, a no-frills, one-room pub with a suitably eccentric cast of regulars.
