    I have meanwhile returned home and started work again.  I’m sorry I didn’t find the time to give you earlier feedback of my stay but the last two weeks have been extremely busy.

    Nevertheless I don’t want on any account to miss saying thank you for the FANTASTIC time I had when staying with you.  I’ve stayed in many different b&bs in the UK and let me also thank you very much for making your home mine for a while.  I will certainly keep you in mind and return as soon as possible if I may.

  • Michael Lommel

    I was given a truly warm welcome, Tia and Julian are perfect hosts.  Over the years, I have experienced many B&Bs.  There were quite a few good ones, but hardly one where I would say “Yes, a real home from home” and such is Holyleas House.  Excellent breakfast, beautiful rooms, tucked away in rural Dorset.

    I have stayed twice so far and will certainly return in future to enjoy a relaxing time at Tia’s and Julian’s place.  Highly recommended

  • Annette Poultney

    Just to say thank you for a delightful stay at Holyleas House last weekend, we felt thoroughly spoilt!  I have spread the word about your B&B via the wonderful method of social media (whatever did we do before Facebook?!) in the hope that someone may remember our recommendation.

    We will most certainly re-book another time when we are visiting the area.

  • Peter and Tika Lunning

    Just a note to thank you both for such an enjoyable stay with you.  Tika and I were so happy to receive such a genuine welcome – thank you so much.

    We will certainly stay again and tell friends to do so as well
