East Burton House
Ranked #5 of 5 Wool B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I stayed here just before the start of Camp Bestival. I was performing as part of the festival and chose to spend the rest of the weekend with members of my group. I wished I had remained at East Burton House throughout the weekend, rather than camping for the next 2 days. Comfortable and clean room and lovely and hospitable hosts. Homemade marmalade and toast with my breakfast, simply divine. I definately plan to come back again, but stay for longer this time. No qualms recommending this place.

We stayed at East Burton House when visting Monkey World. It is a totally charming building in an idyllic setting. The grounds were beautiful and the owners very friendly and welcoming. Our room was great - clean, spacious and very comfy. There is a good pub just a couple of minutes walk along the country lane and others that are also within walking distance. The breakfast was delicious and they were very willing to accomodate individual requests. We chose this B&B mainly due to its proximity to Monkey World but is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area and we hope to return soon. All in all, no criticisms and a lovely place to stay.

We stayed here when visiting monkey world. Friendly host and lovely room, very comfy beds. The only problem we had was the power of the shower, but this can't be helped if water pressure isn't there. Certainly wouldn't stop me staying there. The breakfast was very nice, with veggie options available. All round great place to stay.

My partner & I had planned a few days away in the Dorset area , as we wanted to escape the pressures & stresses of life just for a short while.
And we certainly found our Utopia! East Burton House is in an idyllic setting, down a quiet country lane; both the house & the "secret" gardens, complete with wandering hens, are beautiful & peaceful; Shaun & family could not have been more helpful & friendly, yet unobtrusive; our room was clean, comfortable & tranquil & the breakfasts were delicious (& special mention must go to Mike for his professional & efficient service) & enough to set us up for a busy day's exploring at Monkey World, the Tank museum & Weymouth,just to name a few places on the doorstep.
I won't forget strolling down the lovely country lane to the local for a delicious supper of steak and ale pie & the peace and quiet was just what we needed to unwind and recharge our batteries. We will certainly return; probably as part of our honeymoon!

Clean, comfortable and extremely friendly hosts. Ideally located, especially if you are visiting Monkey World, or the tank museum. Good breakfast choice. Highly recommend.
Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

The B and B is in a good location for the Durdle Door and Wareham. It was, however, hard to find on the GPS and on the road. Rooms were very nice, beds were comfy and the bathrooms were good. The shower fixtures were flimsy and great care had to be taken not to break them. The breakfast was good and nicely prepared with eggs from the resident chickens. There are several pubs in the area for dinner. We had to use Expedia to book this place and the owner did not know how much Expedia was charging. I'd rather use Booking.com

Having a short break in Dorset, East Burton House proved to be an ideal base to explore the Isle of Purbeck. A short drive from Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Lulworth Cove, Wareham, Swanage, and all the main attractions. Room a good size, bed comfortable, breakfast tasty, and made with eggs from their own chickens. Despite being near the railway, the peace and quiet at the end of the day is the perfect antidote to a hectic day's sightseeing. Within walking distance of two very good pubs, what more could you want?
