Achievements & Awards at Yalbury Cottage



Jamie and Ariane are absolutely delighted to have the honour of Yalbury Cottage being awarded Small Hotel of the Year 2015 by The Good Hotel Guide.

The Good Hotel Guide is the leading independent guide to hotels in Great Britain and Ireland. It is written for the reader seeking impartial advice on finding a good place to stay. Hotels cannot buy their entry as they do in most rival guides. No money changes hands, and the editors and inspectors do not accept free hospitality on their anonymous visits to hotels.

Daily Mail Mail Online

'Cosy and friendly, this hotel in a Dorset hamlet is a conversion of 300-year-old thatched cottages which once housed the shepherd and the keeper of the water meadows. The bedrooms, decorated in rural style, look across fields. Ariane and Jamie Jones are the welcoming owners; his cooking of pork tenderloin with Blue Vinny sauce and duck liver parfait is sensational.’ The Daily Mail - MailOnline
