West Ower B&B
Ranked #9 of 10 Corfe Castle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed on the garden room which has its own terrace and access to the garden. Although the weather was not brilliant we still managed tea and sandwiches on the terrace! Breakfast is served in the dining room overlooking the magnificent gardens and surrounding countryside. A delicious breakfast each morning which was more than enough to keep us going through the day. The room itself very comfortable and clean with ample supply of teabags, coffee etc. We were made to feel most welcome and the location is good for many of the attractions nearby. Would definitely go back.Thank you for a lovely stay.

West Ower is just as you would imagine it - a lovely quiet setting in the countryside a few miles from both Swanage and Corfe castle with a stunning big garden, great breakfasts with lots of fresh fruits and most of all the superb friendly hosts Gillian and David. Whether you like walking, sightseeing, idling in the garden or want to enjoy Swanage while staying in the countryside, this is the B&B for you and the value you get for your money is unbeatable.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is where we stayed and would recommend to anyone. You have access to the dining room...

Situated in quiet countryside, in particular quiet at night, with good walks near by. Accommodation comfortable and a breakfast to die for - fantastic selection of fresh fruit in addition to the cooked breakfast. If you have time, their garden is extensive and well worth a visit.

From the West Ower website my wife and I chose the Garden Room. This gave us direct access from the comfortable double room to the garden, which captivated my wife's interest as a keen gardener. The variety of plants and flowers was impressive and the whole area benefited from the attention of David and Gillian. Through their assistance our short stay of 2 nights was enhanced as they both had an excellent knowledge of the Isle of Purbeck and their willingness to spend the time after breakfast discussing our day ahead was really appreciated.
The said breakfast provided an excellent start to the day! Such a menu has to be sampled to fully appreciate the comments of other travellers on the website.

I cannot fault the service provided. Great location, superb twin accommodation with ensuite bathroom. I stayed one night with my brother to walk on a Saturday and Gillian was simply a brilliant host (and cook!) Breakfast still being discussed since we returned home - the best we've ever had. Great value for money, would've paid more! If you need a base in the Isle of Purbeck stop looking and book this!

Room Tip: You won't be disappointed with any of the three rooms.

Gill and David greet you with a warm welcome you to their home and fascinating garden full of interesting plants.
Gill does a superb spread for breakfast with quality ingredients. This sets you up for the day ahead. Westower is set in a tranquil position along the narrow country lanes of Purbeck. A perfect starting point for walking. Just a few miles from Corfe Castle, Swanage or a number of pretty Dorset villages.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable with little touches that make you feel at home and relaxed straight away.

Just the place for a quiet weekend and so easy to get to Swanage, Corfe and Studland. Gill and David were excellent hosts and breakfast would feed you for the day. A lovely garden to wander around with a stunning collection of Iris varieties and great for bird watching.

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
