Certificate of Excellence


We were delighted this month to have been awarded a ‘Certificate of Excellence 2016’ courtesy of online review site TripAdvisor.

As it stands we currently have a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from 57 reviews. This places us as the number two attraction in Cerne Abbas – hot on the heels of the Cerne Abbas giant!

We have been fortunate to enjoy a number of glowing reviews this month and many five star ratings. Whether they be full of lavish praise or pointing out areas for improvement, we would like to genuinely thank everyone who has taken the time to contribute their views and share their experiences at Minterne.

It is only through hearing the opinions of visitors, that we can build and improve upon, the hundreds of years of history that has been inherited at Minterne. So far this year we have upgraded the toilet facilities and now offer a selection of food and drink in good weather. If you have any suggestions for improvement please feel free to let us know either in the comments below or via TripAdvisor link here.
