“Absolutely Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Having read all of the excellent reviews about this B&B, my expectations were pretty high before I arrived. I have to say that even the excellent reviews don't do justice to just how good this B&B is.

From the moment we arrived we were afforded the most fantastic service by Kate, the owner. Tea and homemade cake in the garden on arrival was a simply wonderfully welcoming treat. The rooms are exquisitely furnished and very, very comfortable making for a relaxing, restful stay. Ours had a view across Kate's immaculate gardens with the Purbeck Hills beyond. The gardens were a wonderful place to relax after a day out. Breakfast was absolutely brilliant. The homemade granola was a real hit with me. In fact I enjoyed every aspect of breakfast.

The thing about this B&B that really impressed me was the little details when it comes to service. Everything is done to perfection and you’re really made to feel at home.

The location is fantastic, right in the heart of Corfe, just a short stroll into the village & perfectly placed for exploring the region.

I can't speak highly enough of this B&B. Just go!!

Challow Farm far exceeded all the great reviews written and our high expectations of it. Walking distance from the centre of the village with great pubs and food and the amazing castle, but best of all is the wonderful welcome from Kate, the owner, and her tireless efforts to make sure your every need and wish is catered for. From tea and homemade cake on your arrival to the most sumptuous breakfast with fresh fruit and local produce. Even homemade shortbread in your room with your tea making items. The quality and comfort of the rooms is outstanding and all set in beautiful peaceful gardens.
The whole area of Purbeck is totally unspoilt with lots of things to do and places to see.
Kate will help you plan, advise and even book evening meals and trips locally for you with real enthusiasm.
I cannot think of one thing that could have made the weekend more special, it was perfect in every way....We even had brilliant weather.!
We will definitely be booking a return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are superb .You only need to choose double or twin etc.

This is the best B and B we have stayed in - I like to hunt out places off the beaten track which are individual. We stayed here in April and only got round to doing the review now so apologies, but everything was excellent - great attention to detail in every way. Lovely cake on arrival and very relaxing - we were there to play golf at isle of Purbeck and had little time to stay there as it was a busy wkend, but we hope to return next year to sample cake and lovely breakfasts made by Kate.

We just stayed 5 nights at Challow Farm and we had a wonderfull time.
Beautiful room, and every morning a superb breakfast, with lots of fresh and homemade food.
We got a lot of help from the friendly and welcoming owners, making restaurant reservations for us, advising on walks and informing us on local highlights.
They really added the extra touch to our short holiday
The location is great, outside the village with nice views , but Corfe Castle and the village are just a short walk away. An excellent Pub is just a 5 minute walk from the back yard. Even the impressive Purbeck Coast is (at some 4 miles) within walking distance

We have just returned from a lovely two night stay at Challow Farm. The location is superb, we could even see Corfe Castle from our room! The quality of the rooms was outstanding with lots of nice touches including slippers and bath robes and really soft towels! The owners were very welcoming and really helpful in making suggestions for walks and eating out. The breakfast was great, a huge selection of fresh fruit and home made muesli as well as a full cooked breakfast. We could not have asked for anything more.

Fabulous, these owners have an eye for detail and they go the extra mile to make your stay special .faultless rooms, hospitality and food. They noticed the bottle of fizz in the fridge to celebrate the end of our 2 year hike of the Jurassic way and popped out appropriate glasses (so we would nt have to drink it out of ordinary wine glasses) and black pepper and goats cheese nibbles to snack with it. Now that details deserves sharing.

The farm has its own shortcut to a local pub. It completely misses out the hill we even saw a red deer up close whilst sauntering out in the evening.

They always say "don't believe the hype". Well they're wrong, because with Challow Farmhouse you can. 5 stars across the board are richly deserved.

The accommodation is great: very well appointed rooms with loads of extras like DVDs, local biscuits and a wide selection of local guidebooks and other literature.

The food is even better. Kate sources all the ingredients from local farmers and, when combined with fantastic cooking, you get a breakfast that makes you more than ready to take on the delights of south Dorset. And you don't have to go far as the Farmhouse is located in beautiful Corfe Castle and short drives from all that the Jurassic Coast has to offer.

Staying at Challow Farmhouse is a no-brainer...we really can't recommend it highly enough!
