We were pleased to welcome Evelyn and her family & friends who came to Dorset for bed & breakfast to visit Durdle Door. They also visited Monkey World. We hope they went away with happy memories of their time in Dorset.Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Lulworth is a very popular tourist destination. After a busy day sight seeing, Long Acre Bed & Breakfast is ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’, a haven of rest & tranquillity.

One of our guests feeding Percy the Peacock!
Guests staying at Long Acre made the most of the hot weather that continues. Some explored the beautiful Dorset coast, walking to Ringstead and Lulworth. Others visited the famous Monkey World sanctuary.Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Amongst the wildlife in the garden we have an unusually pretty bird. Some deer have come to take a look too. Brandy the cat is respectful of Percy the Peacock, despite making eye contact only 3ft apart!
- In mid-July 2012 a solar panel system was fitted by the friendly & professional team at NGPS Ltd. This produces electric which is used in house as well as exporting to the grid.
- In the Autumn of 2012 the main house heating pipes were completely renewed and a mains fed pressurised system put in place, along with the incoming mains pipe too. My grateful thanks to Trevor Lee for his commitment to this month long task. Thanks also to neighbour Mike Smeaton for his timely assistance with his digger just before the cold weather started.
- In February 2013 a solar thermal panel was linked to the new solar cylinder by NGPS. This heats up the water in summer, with less reliance on the oil boiler.
We hope that these investments will ensure that Long Acre remains a comfortable place to stay for our visitors for many years to come. Many thanks to everyone who has made this possible.Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
