Alan is the ideal host, looks after everyone well, friendly, has great suggestions for what to do, where to eat, etc. Our room was super clean, comfortable beds and everything we needed. Everything is very very organised and professional without losing the personal touch.

Spent three night at this very good B&B with friend. Good value for money. Breakfast was good and rooms visited out to a good standard. Long time since I've done at B&B and was impressed. Worth a return visit.

For my annual visit to lovely Swanage I use Caythorpe House as I know the place and owner, Alan, will give me great and friendly stay. Each year the owner has been developing the place into a tranquil, modern decorated/furnished property that is very comfortable and have to say, Alan makes for such a friendly stay. Nothing is too much...

I was looking for a single room for my first visit to Dorset for the Swanage Walking festival and found Caythorpe House online.

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of September. Alan was extremely helpful in allowing us to check in early (we had a course which started at 2.00pm) and letting us leave the car on site until well after check out on the last day. My room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts very good. Fantastic location too....
