Valerie adores large mirrors – which she paints and distresses herself – rich fabrics, real wood, dainty antiques. She also delights in looking after guests, so no detail is missed in her elegant home, from the gorgeous bathroom to a ‘full works’ breakfast – taken in the spanking new breakfast room or on a sunny patio. Built in 1880 as a worker’s cottage, the house sits on a quiet cul-de-sac off Winton’s thriving high street, two miles from Bournemouth town centre with easy public transport. The garden is lit up in spring by blooming camellias and cherry blossom, and the whole house sparkles – as does your charming hostess.

"I don't really want anyone else to know about Valerie as I would like her to keep her rooms uniquely for the use of me and my guests. I returned with my mother last week and had a great time. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is too much trouble for Valerie. She is such a brilliant hostess, right down to the smallest details : hairspray (two kinds), soap (so many kinds and for all types of skin), coffees, teas, chocolate, fruits of all kinds. The rooms and bathroom are gorgeous, as well. And, there are two excellent places where you can have dinner within a two minute walk of her house. Can wait to go back to Bournemouth!"

"Smithfield Place is quite simply - wonderful! The exterior and the approach road give no indication of what to expect inside - and you will gasp as you go in through the front door! Valerie is clearly an immensely talented Interior Designer - although she claims no formal training - very impressive! The entire house is divine, our double room was sumptuous, the bed the most comfortable we've ever slept in, bed linen top quality, deep pile bath towels, and..... guests get their own private lounge with 2 fab sofas and yet another TV ( also in bedroom ). Valerie offers the best breakfast we've ever had in either a B and B or top dollar hotel. Valerie is a delightful and incredibly generous hostess. We highly recommend 7 Smithfield Place to all you visitors to Bournemouth. Sandy Garfield - London."

"7 Smithfield Place is in a very convenient location in Winton. Valerie is a charming and generous hostess. Her breakfast is unsurpassable and the accommodation spotless and very comfortable. We can recommend this wonderful B&B to anybody who appreciates a warm welcome and an elegant decor. We only regretted we couldn't stay longer."

"Though unprepossessing from the outside, Valerie and her cottage is a delight. Great attention to detai and a fabulous breakfast. Just watch out for the cat if you venture to the private bathroom in the middle of the night!"

"Valerie is lovely and caring so much and the breakfast was excellent. It was the first stay in our trip and one of the best. We would definitely come back."

"My husband and I stayed with Valerie for two nights, the second of which we were joined by our friends who used the second slightly smaller but equally gorgeous guest room. On our travels we have had the pleasure of staying in quite a few lovely B&Bs, however, never before have I experienced such amazing attention to detail coupled with Valerie's incredible warmth and generosity. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be recommending 7 Smithfield Place to our friends and family. Carla Draper"

"I booked this for my 'in-laws' for a 60th birthday present - and they LOVED it. They have been back over 2 weeks now (Aug 2010) and still talking about the hospitality and accomodation. Great B&B at great price!"
