The B&B is over the first and second floors, with a total of five bedrooms.

The accommodation has access to the rear and the first floor could be used for owner’s accommodation if desired.

Chris Bickle, director in the licensed leisure team at Savills Southampton, said: “Dorset is an extremely popular tourist destination, offering beautiful coastline, rolling hills and scenic walking and biking trails.

"The demand for lifestyle businesses in the region continues to remain strong and we expect Abbots B&B to receive healthy interest from this type of buyer.”

The freehold interest, inclusive of commercial inventory, is being marketed by Savills residential and commercial teams in Wimborne and Southampton.
