What a lovely place to stay and what a great discovery! We stayed at this guest house for three nights and it was just perfect. Our hosts were so friendly and attentive, and the place is so very cosy - it's a real home away from home and we didn't want to leave.
Our room was traditional and stylish, the bed was huge and so comfortable! We both slept like logs, even with the church bells across the way. The bathroom was new and spotless and the shower was excellent. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate were supplied, along with things like wine glasses and nice big towels.
Breakfast was all home-made from local foods and was plentiful and delicious. My boyfriend particularly liked the home-made granola. We were also given scones and muffins to take with us for elevenses - what a lovely touch.
Also there is a very short walk into the town and to the beach. The perfect place for a Swanage holiday.
