Goodbye Bay Trees

After eight successful and enjoyable years as owners of Milford’s top quality award winning B&B, Sarah and Mark have decided it’s time to move on and Dorset was the favourite next destination.

The last guest has now checked out and packing has begun. The house has been sold to a large family who are moving in next week and, importantly, Bay Trees will no longer be offering B&B accommodation.

The Bay Trees has been providing hospitality to Milford on Sea’s residents and visitors since 1935 when two ladies, Mabel Windeler and Florence Beech from London set up a Tea Shop in the building that was originally the Village Poor House. In the intervening years Bridge House, as it was then known, has been a Tea Shop, a Restaurant with rooms and since the turn of the century a Guest House. It was first referred to as ‘The Bay Trees’ in 1959 and had many operators as a Restaurant until the late 1990s when it was refurbished and converted to a B&B. 

Sarah and Mark have enjoyed being part of the village and running a thriving business, being involved in Food Week with ‘Teas on the Terrace’ and the Open Gardens Days. They have entertained guests from all corners of the UK and around the world. They have gained many awards and thank those businesses and individuals that have helped create this successful enterprise. The Bay Trees has been an important asset for the village, which they are sure will be sorely missed, 

Sarah and Mark say “We are sad to be leaving Milford, it is a vibrant village and we have made many friends, remembering that ’Milford on Sea – Is The Place To Be.”

  1. The Bay Trees B&B will be sorely missed but I'm sure we all wish Sarah & Mark a happy new beginning in Dorset.
