About this property

A classic country tavern with its original thatched roof, dog-friendly The Museum Inn in Dorset dates back to the 17th century and is the archetypal country inn in a lovely rural setting – a favourite spot for local food connoisseurs and a true walking paradise. Inside, the rooms are warmly decorated, the lounge is full of Chesterfield armchairs for cosying up in and the pub is a delightful treat, with dark wood and stone floors. Nestled among the pretty rose gardens and picture-perfect cottages of Farnham, this cosy inn has a fabulous location on the Cranborne Chase making it a doggie wonderland for adventure-seeking pups, as well as a romantic getaway in deepest Dorset.

Dine with Your Dog

Your dog can dine with you in the bar or conservatory or, if you would rather, you can leave your dog to relax in the room. Expect classic British dishes with a luxurious twist. All the ingredients used at the 2AA Rosette restaurant are locally sourced from the countryside and coast to give you an authentic taste of the area.

Bow wow factor

Your pooch will love roaming the natural playground of rolling grassland, ancient woodlands and river valleys that surround the inn.
