Below, the river Stour winds through the valley and under the medieval, nine-arched bridge. Above, an Iron Age hill fort; between is Crawford House. Elegant and Georgian, it sits in attractive walled gardens full of roses; inside is pretty too, with an easy, relaxed atmosphere. Bedrooms with period furnishings are homely and warm; one room has four-poster twin beds. The sun streams through the tall windows of the downstairs rooms, and charming oil paintings hang in the dining room. Andrea is fun, and a great host, with lots of local knowledge; there's a gate from the garden on to the North Dorset Trailway - useful for dog walking.

Guest feedback
"We had an absolutely delightful experience at Crawford House with Andrea, where we stayed for 2 nights in Jan 2017. We had a lovely welcome, with a beautiful ensuite room, overlooking the garden and our 'own' sitting room with roaring fire. The bed was supremely comfortable. The house was elegant and had a wonderful feeling of relaxed, serene warmth. Andrea was clearly interested in her guests and we spent two lovely breakfasts chatting over the superb food. It was one of the most charming and lovely experiences we have had and came away feeling upbeat, restored and refreshed. Thank you."
