Cosy, comfortable and much, much nicer than a hotel! Many thanks for the welcome and for the lift from the station. Amanda, BBC Bristol
Thank you, Cleo, for a truly welcoming stay. As always, I had a very peaceful and restful night. Thank you again for your friendly welcome. Much appreciated! George, Wales (regular guest)
An exceptional room, a very considerate host and a great night’s sleep. Many thanks, Martin
Cleo is delightful in every way! The rooms were lovely, comfy beds, good night’s sleep in a quiet area, all well decorated throughout. Cleo was very easy to communicate with in advance and always very friendly and helpful. We even had a welcome glass of wine when we arrived late! Breakfast was lovely, all local produce and homemade jams too. Best B&B experience I’ve ever had. Kate and Sammy, Dorset Inside Out Festival
A lovely room, very welcoming and a real “home from home”. We will be back – the perfect location to come and visit our family. Martyn and Amanda, Wales.
A short, but very sweet stay at ‘Sunflowers’ – high quality throughout! I appreciated the attention to detail, the perfect breakfast, the warm welcome and the friendly service. Paul, London.
We had a wonderful stay at ‘Sunflowers’ Bed & Breakfast. Cleo and Steve have thought of everything needed for an amazing break. The breakfasts are lovely, with a beautifully laid table and delicious local ingredients. Our holiday was faultless, fabulous and fun. Thank you to our hosts and their adorable dog Peggy. Jane and Terry, Sussex
We stayed at Cleo and Steve’s for one night and had a great and relaxing time. Both hosts are very welcoming and nothing is any trouble. Great amenities also, from generous coffee/tea making facilities, toiletries to the lovely hot tub. We also enjoyed breakfast – good quality local food and drinks were provided. We found the location great as a base to explore Dorset. It’s about 30 minutes from Longleat and about an hour from the coast. We recommend a trip to Lulworth Cove. We also had a lovely dinner at South Street Kitchen, only 5 minutes’ walk. Thank you Cleo & Steve! Jarka and Femi, London
We managed to get to Lyme Regis in just about an hour (and easily managed to fit in Lulworth Cove and the walk to Durdle Door in the same day). There is a One Stop, Asda and Waitrose nearby for provisions. Finally, a mention of Cleo: a wonderful person with plenty of time and helpful advice, partnered with the very funny Steve and adorable dog, Peggy. Cleo made the trip that extra bit special and we do hope to return one day soon.
Cleo’s is a fantastic home from home B&B! My husband and I went to stay for an anniversary weekend with our one year old girl. The house is beautiful. The hot tub is a selling point, set in a stunning garden with its own shelter. The bedroom had everything we needed, was very clean and tidy and the bed was so comfortable! We enjoyed talking to Cleo and Steve about the knowledge she holds on the area. Cleo always had information on the places we wanted to visit and held recommendations on each. We will visit again and recommend ‘Sunflowers’ to anyone looking for a well looked after home from home style B&B. Oh, also the freshly prepared breakfast kept us full all day! Thank you Cleo!
Me and my girlfriend spent one night at the beautiful ‘Sunflowers’ under the hospitality of the lovely Cleo and Steve. They couldn’t have done anything more to make us feel welcome! Everything was as described and we can’t fault one thing. The bed was very comfy, the hot tub, a god send after spending a day at Longleat and the fantastic breakfast (especially the fruit compote and jam!) set us up right for the next day of travelling around! We would highly recommend ‘Sunflowers’! It was a shame we could only spend one night, but we now know where we will be staying the next time we visit the area! Thank you very much! Shaun and Aimee, Port Talbot
We had a lovely time in Dorset with Cleo and Steve. They were the perfect hosts. When we arrived there was a cup of tea and cake awaiting us. We had our own living room, and the bedroom was fabulous. Everything was nice and clean, and the roses in our bedroom were lovely. We had a choice for breakfast. We especially enjoyed the rhubarb compote and the Greek yogurt. They were very helpful in advising us of places to visit, and places to eat. The hot tub was very relaxing. We stayed with Cleo for four nights. We will definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone. They are friendly and helpful. Brenda and Malgwyn, Wales
Cleo has a lovely house that is immaculately clean and presented to a very high standard. We were very impressed with our stay and had a fantastic time exploring the local area. The room was spacious, well equipped and the hot tub was the jewel in the crown. We were met at the timing as we had agreed prior to arrival and hosted very well – we sampled her home baking and the cake comes highly recommended! I would definitely stay again! Craig, Scotland
My parents and I stayed three nights at ‘Sunflowers’ and had a fantastic time. This is a beautiful house in a great location, with spotlessly clean, spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable bedrooms. The private sitting room (where Cleo serves a delicious breakfast, plus very welcome tea and cake on arrival) was a real bonus enabling us to relax in comfort. The hot tub deserves a special mention – a real treat! Cleo and Steve are generous, knowledgeable and friendly hosts who we feel have done everything they can to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Lots to see and do in the area – we particularly enjoyed visiting Stourhead, and nearby Shaftesbury. We were also impressed with the very helpful listings of places to eat and in particular would mention an excellent meal at the Coppleridge Inn. Thank you, Cleo and Steve, for an excellent and very hospitable stay, and also for your help so freely given. A very comfortable experience and very highly recommended. Elizabeth, Terry and Carol, Kent
Excellent host- we were welcomed with tea and cake. The room was spotless and we were provided with various types of teas in our room. Cleo was very helpful with places to visit etc. Hot tub was great fun also. Breakfast was also lovely – especially the bread! Thanks for a great stay!
A lovely warm welcome from Cleo on our arrival. The rooms were immaculate and so comfortable. It was great having our own sitting room and as for the use of the hot tub: sheer bliss springs to mind. For an overnight stay we couldn’t have hoped for more, apart from wishing we could’ve stayed longer. Thank you Cleo for opening your home up to us and making Louise, Daisy and myself feel so welcome.
We had a wonderful stay, Cleo and Steve were great hosts and full of recommendations and suggestions for where to go, both to visit and to eat. We loved the private sitting room, great to have somewhere to sit other than the bedroom. Hope to see you both again. Jim and Denise, Hampshire
We had a very pleasant stay at Cleo’s lovely house. The room and en-suite were beautiful, as was the breakfast. Highlight was the big hot tub, would love to return. Thank you. Adrian, London
Cleo made us feel incredibly welcome in her beautiful home. There’s not one thing she hadn’t thought of. Would thoroughly recommend and am thinking of a reason to return to Gillingham so we can stay again!
Lovely stay, a little bit of luxury with our own sitting room too. Cleo was super welcoming and happily warmed up our food for us as well as giving a mum a glass of wine which was gratefully received. Dog lovers: be prepared to fall in love with Peggy and for your dogs to be able to share your luxury. We look forward to being in the area again and being able to sample the hot tub. Thanks a million. Kate, Sam and Blossom the cocker spaniel, Nottinghamshire
‘Sunflowers’ was absolutely immaculate from start to finish. Immaculate surroundings, cleanliness and hospitality. Cleo could not have done more for us, with tea and cake on arrival and a glass of wine in the evening. Only downside was we didn’t get chance to spend more time in the surrounding area. Maybe next time.
What a wonderful stay. Cleo and Steve were very welcoming and the accommodation was first class, including the hot tub! This is one place we will definitely come back to and we could even bring our dog, Ellie.
A touch of luxury and comfort. Cleo and Steve were superb hosts and nothing was too much trouble. A welcome pot of tea on arrival, meeting Peggy the spaniel cross and a glass of wine in the private sitting room all served to make me extremely welcome. Steve drove me to the station to catch an early train and generously collected me late in the evening. I simply cannot wait to book in again.
