The Alders

Sandford Orcas, Dorset, DT9 4SB, England

Fodor’s Expert Review

This homey B&B, a secluded stone house set in an old walled garden opposite a 13th-century church, is in a quiet, unspoiled village 3 miles north of Sherborne. The comfortable bedrooms are cheerfully decorated, and watercolors and sleek pottery created by the owner are displayed throughout. The guests' lounge has an inglenook fireplace, while the wood-paneled dining room hosts a traditional breakfast each morning, featuring homemade jam. Nearby pubs provide evening meals.
