These newly renovated and refurbished rooms, are located on the upper floor of Abbey Cottage numbered 1 & 2. They are generously-sized rooms (over 20 sq.m) and have been finished to the highest standard and include a comfortable king-size bed. Each en-suite has a bath with monsoon shower and complimentary toiletries. A flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities are provided in each room along with luxury bathrobes and toiletries. These rooms can be accessed from the bar/restaurant area of the Inn as well as directly from the street opposite the Abbey.

A studio apartment style double room that we have named The Hayloft, accessed externally to the inn, that is newly refurbished and finished to a high standard. The small wet-room (equipped with shower, sink and toilet) is located on the lower floor adjacent to the staircase which leads to the double bedroom and lounge area on the upper floor. This room has a king-size bed, flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. Luxury bathrobes are provided in the room.

Courtyard suite is newly refurbished and offers plenty of space with a separate lounge (with a sofa bed), family bathroom (equipped with a bath and shower) and a double bedroom. The lounge has a flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. Luxury bathrobes and toiletries are provided. This room is accessed by an external staircase from the garden of the inn.

Simply Wow! Perfect location, directly opposite the Abbey and literally a few minutes walk into town. Our room overlooking the Abbey, (Cottage Room No.1 I believe) was absolutely superb, with a huge bathroom, sofa seating and a huge, comfortable bed. There was quality water and tea / coffee facilities in the room and equally good toiletries. The bar / restaurant is fantastic, with outside seating, a wonderful snug and ample restaurant seating. You must try the Italian small-dish ,(tapas style) food in the restaurant as it is top-notch. I really do believe the full-English breakfast we had was one of the best I've experienced in terms of quality ingredients, cooked beautifully. To top all of this off, the staff are some of the most friendly, helpful and efficient you could possibly hope to meet. I really wish we had the opportunity to have stayed more than the one night available to us on our tour of the area, but wouldn't hesitate in the slightest in re-visiting The Plume the next time we're in Sherborne.

"The view from the window was spectacular. A full on view of the Abbey. We had seen earlier comments about the chimes going through the night. We were aware of them but the thick curtains helped muffle the sound and we had a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed."
