The Old Forge B&B

Compton Abbas village is situated just below Fontmell Down now part of a chalk down land owned by The National Trust. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and special interest for its wild flowers, grasses, butterflies and Iron Age cross dykes. It was purchased by The National Trust in memory of Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) as a reminder of some of his great writings that took place in Dorset and his love of the county. No fertilisers or sprays have been used to encourage the colonisation of chalk loving flowers. In summer the profusion of flowers and butterflies on the site gives us a glimpse of what was once a familiar sight in the countryside.

The property was purchased in 1986 and has been gradually renovated and restored to create a B&B with two self-catering cottages. There are three B&B rooms: The Green Room - spacious lofty family room to sleep 2 to 3. It has a lovely old antique double bed and a Dutch pine sleigh single bed. There is an en-suite shower and loo to this room; The Blue Room - a pretty cottage bedroom under the eaves with a pine double bed. There is a private bathroom just adjacent; The Pink Room - a charming single bedroom with a pine single bed. There is a private bathroom just adjacent. N.B. As these two rooms share the same bathroom we do not let them out at the same time unless it is to one family, i.e.; a private bathroom is assured. Visitors are welcome to use the dining/sitting room with Log burning stove, board games, local maps and guidebooks. The Old Forge is a non-smoking household.
