A Warm Welcome to Wooden Cabbage, our comfortable 'Bed and Breakfast'

Relax and unwind in our unique country house in this stunningly beautiful valley in West Dorset.

Martyn and Susie Lee at Wooden CabbageMartyn and Susie's gift for putting people at ease makes every visitor feel relaxed and welcome at Wooden Cabbage House.   West of Dorchester, South of Sherborne, just 12 miles from Bridport.

The fascinating name (of Wooden Cabbage) is a local colloquialism for the stunted oak trees that grow here.  As with the name, our lovely house is uniquely individual.   As you arrive at the top of our long private drive the breathtaking beauty of the fabulous view makes most guests stop their cars to look and admire.  After being shown your room, come downstairs and enjoy a cup of tea in the beautiful garden or sit in the thatched folly beside Martyn's famous 'veg' patch.   Watch the deer that graze every evening in our fields.

Our lovely house and three beautiful bedrooms, with antiques and oil paintings, help this to be the perfect escape.   See the stars at night with no light pollution or noise.  Every comment in the Visitors' Book is a testament to the many happy people that arrive as strangers and leave as friends.   

We can recommend beautiful gardens, places to visit, walks and things to see - off the beaten track;  and the best local pubs and restaurants.

Martyn and Susie offer sensational breakfasts, and also the option of booking a three-course evening meal at Wooden Cabbage (see dining in).

Extract from Country Living

"Reached down a private drive with a stunning views ... this house looks as if it has been here for centuries.

"Susie and Martyn Lee are thoroughly congenial hosts. They have an instinct for hospitality.

"The house is beautifully furnished in a country style and scattered with a variety of comfortable antiques.

"Our bedroom was cosy, with a lovely en suite bathroom. After the quietest possible night, we were served a slap-up breakfast in the plant-filled conservatory.

"This charming bed and breakfast is an ideal base for exploring Hardy country, or an inland retreat from which to launch forays to the Jurassic Coast."
