“This was our third visit to ‘Sunflowers’ and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are amazing. Cleo is a joy and her attention to detail is spot on. It’s in a great Dorset location with lots to see and do, right on the doorstep. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area, this is the only place to go. Thanks for making us so welcome.”
