Just spent 2 nights at the best B & B we have experienced. Brett and Sue are justly proud of what they have achieved and took great pleasure in showing us around the facilities as well as some of the lodges. We were offered tea and coffee as soon as we arrived, and shown to our room (Spring) which was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The hot tub was superb, as was a swim before breakfast - which was amazing, local food and plenty of choice (the hens were only a few feet away from the cabin!) We returned after a day out to find our swim towels had been tumble dried and folded on our bed! We were sorry to leave, and have already recommended Little Paddock to family and friends.

Thank you again, we will be back!

Hi Brett & Sue,
We stayed for our wedding anniversary in the summer room we were not disappointed it is beauitfully decorated. We used the hot tub and sauna which is exclusive use to yourselves, the pool is lovely which can be used in all weathers. The breakfast was amazing and left us full for the day, and best of all, Brett and Sue are fantasic and very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble for them they make you feel like friends straight away.

Thanks Brett and Sue for making our stay so wonderful we will be booking again

Hi Brett & Sue,
Just a quick email to say thankyou for making valentines weekend so perfect for us. As you know, I proposed, but if it wasn't for you both and your Little Paddock hospitality, then it just wouldn't have been the same. We truly mean that. You both make the atmosphere so relaxed. We thankyou for that. Our room was great, as soon as we went in we thought, wow! Had a good valentines theme. Everything was just right, from the room, the sauna and jacuzzi, to brett's english breaky. Spot on with that Brett! We enjoyed our stay so much we are going to try make it a yearly break, so pretty sure we see you again sometime.

Thanks again
Phil & Rachel

Hi Brett & Sue,
Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for our lovely stay at Little Paddock, We really enjoyed ourselves and all the kids and us big kids thought the place was pretty much perfect.
We appreciated you attention to detail with every aspect of the site and was incredibly impressed with how you kept the place in clean and in such great condition.
We also really enjoyed our time in the pamper pad and felt very very relaxed when we returned back to our caravans on Friday after being in there. We are hoping to return to visit you at some point later again in the year as I feel this is one of best little CL's we have been to.
Thank you again for making us all feel so welcome, We had a great time and thank you again for the kids selection boxes. Our Little boy was shattered when we got home finally on Saturday, I think the week tired him out!

Hope to see you soon,
The Edgington Smiths & The Suttons

I booked the Autumn Suite for myself and my husband as a two month anniversary surprise. I found Little Paddock website and it looked absolutely beautiful although a little wary that sometimes pictures can be deceiving. How wrong was I. The suite we stayed in was as beautiful, possibly more so than the pictures showed. Sue also took us around some of the luxury lodges and we wanted to move in there and then.
The breakfasts were a great way to start the day and our entire stay was more like staying with old friends than a b and b. We are planning to go back in a few months but torn between the fantastic lodges or the b and b with the great breakfast. We would definitely highly recommend.
Big thank you from Suzanne and Andy

Just spent a wonderful four days. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Sue & Brett made it perfect for us. In thirty years of camping/holidays we have never stayed at a better site. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The lodge was superb and the pamper room divine!! Thank you once again Sue & Brett for a truly lovely time. We will certainly be back!

We have just spent 2 weeks at Little Paddock and we found the site great and Sue and Brett very helpful. It is 35 years since we visited Dorset so everything had altered. Sue recommend the village of Burley which we found to be very nice. The caravan site was always clean and the wash rooms also very clean. As we are from the North East the journey down was very long, but on arriving at the site Sue offered us a hot or cold drink, this was also a very nice touch in this day and age. We will be back and we will tell our friends about this site. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I thought it would be nice to leave a little message of thanks to Brett and Sue, two nicer hosts you could not wish to meet. We stayed two nights in the summer room which was wonderful. Little Paddock is an extremely peaceful, clean and well kept establishment that i would recommend to those seeking a little relaxation and a high degree of comfort. Thanks again Brett & Sue.

After booking at the last minute, my wife and I stayed in the Spring en-suite. After arriving through the gated entrance we found that this place really is worthy of the 4 stars as the room was of a very good size, huge double bed, great power shower for two in the en-suite, all with a good quality, clean & modern finish. Better still was the Sauna and hot tub which were extremely welcoming on a cold March evening. There was also a pool more suited to a summers day! We also took a sneaky peak in the other rooms the next morning and have to say that the website photos don't give these rooms enough justice! The standard is excellent for the £55 we paid. And to top off our experience, Sue and Bret the owners were most welcoming hosts with good local knowledge and a freshly cooked breakfast that really set us up for the next day. It may sound too good to be true, however, based on our experience, you will not be disappointed staying here! Enjoy!

Our weekend at little paddock Ö well we canít actually find a word to describe how lovely it was at Little Paddock, from the moment we arrived Brett and Sue gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at ease. The summer room was beautiful on the website but when youíre there it's even more amazing, the breakfast was so lovely and fresh and Little Paddock was so clean, the Hot-Tub and sauna were great, we felt so relaxed and chilled. Brett and Sue you made us feel at home and your hospitality was amazing Little Paddock is beautiful, we will recommend it to all my friends and family and would come back again.
You should be proud your bed and breakfast was beautiful it doesnít deserve to be called that as you get so much more than just bed and breakfast thank you so much xx
Love kerri and Sam   January 2008

To say both of you were  hospitable is an understatement. It really is truly refreshing to meet  people who you feel you've known longer than the short period you're been their guests. To be greeted with such warmth and to part with a feeling that you were leaving home was astonishing.
As for the site, the high standards you set yourselves in cleanliness and organisation of the pitches and surrounding areas was faultless. From the  logs left beside the chimmneas to the towels in the Pamper pad (Sauna & Hot-Tub) this showed us we were, albeit a short time, part of a large family of friends.
As for comments & suggestions, simply never change ANYTHING. Finally Thank You both .... we WILL be back x

We planned to stay in a 5 star hotel in Bournemouth for a weekend as part of our celebrations for our 25 years marriage and my Daughter persuaded my wife to book The Little Paddock instead. We are so happy she did, as it is almost the perfect place to stay whether you are Bed and Breakfast or using the camp site. I say almost perfect because The Little Paddock was made perfect by Brett and Sue's hospitality from the moment we arrived. Our room was arranged for us especially by Sue due to our 25th celebration at no extra cost. Breakfast every morning on the patio was very special and most enjoyable (boiled eggs were lovely Brett) and if anyone goes as a guest and doesn't leave as a friend, then they mustn't have any friends to begin with. Brett and Sue are in the right business, looking after people during their stay, well done to you both, congratulations on getting a 4 star rating, you deserve it. We cant wait to come back as friends again.
