We have a comfy double attic room, newly decorated, in our warm, tidy and friendly Victorian terrace house. The bedroom is roomy with a double bed and en suite toilet and wash basin. What's more, guests have sole use of a second room - a lounge on the first floor which has a very comfortable double sofa bed, breakfast table, en suite shower room and everything you need to make your own breakfast.Dorchester town centre is 10 minute walk away and the Jurassic coast and Hardy Country nearby.

The space

We have a very spacious,comfy double attic room, newly decorated, in our warm and friendly Victorian terrace house. The bedroom is roomy with a double bed and en suite toilet and wash basin. What's more, guests have sole use of a second large room, also newly decorated - a lounge area directly below on the first floor with a sofa which turns into highly comfortable double sofa bed. There is a good sized en suite shower room,and second toilet attached to this room.
This second room can be used simply as a sitting room and breakfast area when two guests are staying, or the sofa bed can be made up and could be used for additional family members or close friends,sharing the en suite.
We provide a fridge with all the ingredients for a continental type breakfast - tea, coffee, milk, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, toast, jams etc. for you to help yourself to.
There is also a microwave..This means you are pretty much self contained.
We will clear away and wash up , and keep the fridge topped up.

We live downstairs and along the landing on the first floor with our own bathroom.

Guest access

You will have a key to come and go as you wish. Generally we keep our own living space separate.

Interaction with guests

We are around most of the time, and are very happy to chat and give advice on the area if you wish.
We both retired last year, and enjoy walking, gardening and travelling, and supporting local arts events.

Other things to note

We have a springer spaniel, who will be kept out of the way, although he is very friendly.

Mike and Claire are really welcoming hosts. Their place is very clean, tidy, and well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches such as a big variety of breakfast things! They are really friendly, offered us some useful advice on the area, and flexible with check in times, this was fantastic as it really helped us with our weekend plans attending a wedding. You can walk into Dorchester in about 10mins. Would recommend this to anyone. Also, the shower is one of the best we've ever used!

We loved the separate room giving you somewhere to relax away from the bedroom. All the facilities were excellent and the home made conserves for breakfast were really enjoyable

Fantastic stay at Claire and Mike's. Having two rooms was really nice for me as I was staying for two weeks so I had somewhere to relax in the evenings. Both rooms are very comfortable and cosy. It's is about 8 mins walk into Dorchester. Mike and Claire themselves are wonderful people and really made me feel at home while I was working away. Can't recommend them enough!

Mike and Claire are such fantastic hosts. Staying with them really felt like if we were coming back to our own home after our daily adventures in Dorset. This was our first Airbnb experience and it could not have been any better. Mike's and Claire's place is lovely and clean and there are many choices for good food nearby - thank you Mike and Claire (and for the shoehorn for my mum :-)!

The best Air BnB I've ever stayed in. Lots of space set over two floors, so it really does feel like a home away from home. Claire and Mike are lovely people, and were very welcoming. Claire helped me out with things to do around the local area too, which was great, meant I got a much better experience of the Jurassic Coast than I would have otherwise. Their spaniel Olly is gorgeous, and very friendly! The rooms were spotless, nicely decorated and the bed was really comfy. We slept so well! The shower is great too. The area of town is quiet and nice to walk around, and there are good pubs and eateries nearby. We'd love to stay here again.

Location was ideal. A 7min walk to the train station. Nothing was too much trouble. I even did ironing for the days I was there using Claire's iron. I asked for a thinner duvet and it was changed straight away. Kitchen fridge was packed out with generous extras, juice, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, bread...the lot. Shower is brand new and spacious. Great value for money considering how central it is
