Abbots Tearoom

High Teas are pre-bookable with 24hrs notice

We have made the heart breaking decision to close the tea room B&B. 

The current economic crisis, rising costs and with the seasonal nature of the business has made it unviable for us to continue in the quieter winter months.

We haven't yet decided what our future holds at the moment, but I would like to thank my dedicated staff, both past and present for their unwavering support and loyalty over the years.

These past few years have been particularly challenging - recruitment has been exceptionally painful (an unfortunate fall out from Brexit & Covid), coupled with rising costs.

Thank you to all you lovely visitors who have supported me through thick and thin, rain and shine - its very much appreciated.

Welcome to Abbots Tearoom and Bed & Breakfast

Cerne Abbas, near Dorchester, Dorset

Abbots is a traditional Tearoom with Bed & Breakfast rooms near Dorchester in the heart of the Dorset Countryside in the pretty village of Cerne Abbas. Cerne Abbas is situated halfway between Dorchester and Sherborne in North West Dorset. The owners, Adam and Nicola Wilkes took over mid October 2010 and have carried out extensive refurbishments to both the tearoom and the bed and breakfast rooms.
