Guest Reviews

’’Absolutely beautiful accommodation great location views outstanding and such friendly and helpful staff. Hot tub was fantastic touch the Stable was so comfortable and plenty of room for us. Smart tv and free WiFi made for a great holiday’’. 5th October.

‘’We were 3 households in need of a break and stayed at Plumtree which was ideal for our needs. The hot tub was a bonus and the use of the swimming pool and activities meant we didn't have to venture far if we didn't want to. It was clean and uncluttered which gave the feeling of space. The setting was lovely, quiet and there was a great feeling 'being away from it all'’’. September 2021.

‘’Wanted somewhere for our family to celebrate my 65th birthday and this was just wonderful. Great accommodation with hot tub. Swimming pool. Fishing lake. Games room and activity centre. You really didn’t have to leave the place if you didn’t want to. Didn’t use any nearby eating places which some were within walking distance but just a short drive away at sturminster Newton there are takeaways available. Thank you penny for a lovely stay would fully recommend to friends’’. September 2021.
