#3 of 6 B&Bs in Charmouth
Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
Monkton Wyld Court has a long history of offering eco-friendly organic B&B hospitality, with all proceeds going towards the upkeep of our beautiful Victorian-Gothic Grade II Listed manor house and the Trust’s charitable activities. The B&B is run by a small community of friendly volunteers; guests are welcome to enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the spacious house and grounds in privacy, but those interested in the centre can always find people willing to share their experiences of low-impact living. Breakfast is self-serve and includes milk and yoghurt from our Jersey cows as well as home-made jams and local honey. We ask that all our guests wash their own dishes after meals, and strip their beds before leaving. We don’t have any television in the house and only limited wifi, but can provide you with plenty of board games and books, and maps for walks across the lush Dorset hills and down to the Jurassic Coast. The historic market towns of Bridport and Axminster are also just a short drive away.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I visited Monkton Wyld Court for a few days for a personal writing retreat. The bookings coordinator was incredibly helpful and accommodating, allowing me to stay in the wooden cabin in the grounds, as the rooms in the main house were fully booked for the dates I wanted. It is a quirky but stunning place (beautiful old vicarage and grounds). The views were breathtaking and it is very quiet and peaceful. The staff were lovely and invited me to eat dinner with them. I would thoroughly recommend this place for people wanting to get away from the busyness of life for a few days whether to write, or just take a break. I came home refreshed and rested and having done lots of writing!

This two star rating is mainly due to the poor food offering and kitchen area. We ate one evening meal and did not eat there again. The meal was a mixture of tinned tomatoes, tinned beans and a bit of carrot mixed together. This was served with some very dry pizza style bread and white overcooked pasta. The elements of this meal weren’t served at the same time. The pudding was apple cake. We were told there would be custard but it never came. £15 pounds! Breakfast was a loaf left on the side with butter and various spreads. Some muesli or cornflakes. The toaster smoked as it had not been cleaned and maintained. I could go on but I think I have said enough. No one was around to ask. This was not the whole food promise from the website. On the positive side the beds and bedrooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. The shared toilets and bathrooms were very clean. Interesting place but a strange atmosphere. I was left feeling that something wasn’t right.

It looked lovely but there is a very peculiar atmosphere. I was glad to leave, a day early. Uncomfortable — spooky. and somewhat scruffy. Staff seem uninterested in guests. Cannot recommend for solo lady travellers.

This is my second review for the end of my stay at this site. Do not hesitate to book. I cannot commend this place enough. My pup Eddie and I would like to thank all the staff for the wonderful welcome throughout the whole stay. We shall be back albeit Eddie will be a tad bigger no doubt. Once again thanks. Darren and Eddie the Rottie.

I stayed for a week to finish a draft of my novel, and the environment was perfect for this. The residents are friendly, and the other guests were as well - but not so much so that it distracted me. There is a tiny pub where you can have a drink and chat at the end of the day, the beds are comfortable, and they gave me a massive room with a sofa and armchair, which meant I could write in various locations around the room all day. The writer's retreat is full board (self-service breakfast, plus cooked lunch and dinner), and the food is incredible - vegetarian (often vegan) and delicious. It was a perfect environment, and I'm hoping to come back again. This isn't a luxury place, but it is perfect to get some work done, meet interesting people, and hear about sustainable agricultural and lifestyle practices. The other guests while I was there were mostly walkers or other people on writing retreats, or people there for courses/events. It has a great community feel as a result. The other thing to know is that it's not very near cities/towns, and I don't drive. It was fine, as I was able to walk (a couple hours) to Lyme Regis, and got a taxi from the nearby station (you can also get a bus, I think). Just something to know - for me it was good, as it meant there were even fewer distractions! Tea is provided but I recommend you bring your own coffee and snacks for during the day. The pub is mostly beer and cider.

Amazing place run by lovely people. We had a really easygoing short break staying here. It's got so much character and the area is fantastic. It would have been nice to have hung around a bit more for the atmosphere/social interaction but we had little time and a few plans. It is a hostel (and I think they're clear about that up front) so don't expect hotel-style service but it had everything we needed and more. I've stayed in quite a few hostels and this was very pleasant and comfortable

we were are Monkton Court for a course - unfortunately the weather caused a few problems - however that aside we really enjoyed staying there for two nights. Lovely food and very relaxing place to be. Only thing I wasn't so keen on was not having an en suite toilet - however that didn't really detract from the lovely atmosphere and incredibly friendly people/community that live there

Monkton Wyld Court primarily runs eco friendly courses but also runs B&B/camping. Not a place I would usually stay however I stayed in the B&B and I absolutely loved the atmosphere, the setting and the experience. It was simple, clean and very very charming. There was a tiny bar in the English country garden selling beer in the evening with guests sat around a fire pit roasting marshmallows. No TV but there is WiFi. Vegetarian Breakfast was simple - but great and you have to wash up your own dishes. It was as like going back in time - lovely atmosphere. There were numerous shared bathrooms - all very clean. The rooms were basic but comfortable. I absolutely loved it there and will go back again. Only regret is that we didn’t have supper there! It smelt delicious.

Great place to stay. Clean, light and warm rooms and great value. I booked for a hostel but it felt more like a b and b than a hostel. Bedding was provided no need to bring a sleeping bag. Good free wifi.

We come as a singing and dancing weekend each November to this lovely community. We get plenty of great vegetarian food as we request. The grounds are brilliant to walk in and the farm produces good organic food for us to enjoy. They have improved the bathrooms and heating which is difficult in such a Victorian old rectory! There are deer in the church yard next door. The smallest pub in the area has good beers. The residents are helpful and unobtrusive. Do give it a try
