“Hidden And Lovely”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

This is a small, hidden-away modern place with only a couple of rooms, in a tiny hamlet just under the Purbeck Ridge. We were in the Gallery Room, which looks like an attic conversion beautifully done with light coming in all directions from pitched windows. Besides the main double bedroom with its en suite, there's with a separate area above reachable by a clever pull-down ladder with a single bed. The garden is full of an exceptional variety of birds, which you can see also from the breakfast table. Breakfast was a cut above the b&b usual - it included fresh fruit, dried fruit, and a choice that you usually only get in smart hotels. With nice hosts too, this made for a very good overnight.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to West Ower B&B perfectly located in the middle of the Isle of Purbeck with easy access to both Corfe Castle and Swanage. This large and attractive house is nestled in wonderful rural scenery only two miles from the historic and picturesque village of Corfe Castle. Both Corfe Castle and Swanage can be reached using the Steam Train from Harmans Cross Station (next to Harmans Cross Village hall) which is only a pleasant 15 minute walk away along country lanes. The B&B itself is is set within two acres of beautiful rambling gardens, where membership of the RHS has assisted in the development of an extensive collection of interesting plants, amongst which one can find a variety of unusual ducks, chickens and geese. Set amongst fields and woodland, the garden is an ideal habitat for an array of wildlife and we have been operating a moth trap for a National recording scheme for many years. The wide variety of birds and animals attracted to the garden gives a great taster for the delights to be found in the surrounding area.All accommodation is located within an extension to the main building, allowing for easy access through a separate front door. There are three en-suite rooms to choose from: The Garden Room A spacious room with a comfy double bed and large shower room. French Doors open onto a secluded garden patio over-looking a pond. The Gallery Room A light and airy double room with a bathroom that includes a shower. Windows on three sides provide great views of the gardens and the Purbeck Hills. The Twin Room Two single beds in a bright south-facing room with a bathroom including shower. The views across the valley to distant hills are wonderful. All rooms have a television and guests are provided with tea and coffee making facilities ... and even a little welcoming tipple of sherry! Breakfasts are served in the large, bright dining room, where doors open onto a verandah over-looking the garden and providing good views of the well-visited bird feeders. ... more   less
