We were going to a wedding in Studland and friends told us of Old Harry B&B and recommended it as it's close to their house and the wedding venue. We do not usually stay in a B&B but on arriving we received such a warm welcome.
We stayed in the balcony room ( the largest of 3) as we were there for three nights. On entering the room my husband said that it's not often you find yourself somewhere and the actual room is better than the photos on the website. There was a long balcony which ran alongside our bedroom/ensuite on two sides with glorious views of the sea looking across towards Poole. There is also a sitting area to enjoy the view.
The room itself is a very good size with a large sofa , dressing table , wardrobe etc. etc. and windows along one wall which opened out on to the balcony. The ensuite has two basins aswell as a very good shower and is very modern with good quality toiletries.
Some more friends were also staying here in the Blue Room and did say that our room was much bigger than theirs, hence the price difference, but if you stay for 3 nights or more you get a small discount, we had £20 I think.
In the mornings you have a choice of juice, cereals,yoghurts and the nicest fruit I have had for a long time followed by a really good cooked breakfast. There was also ample tea/coffee, toast, jams and marmalade etc. .
Doris and Barbara who own Old Harry , look after you brilliantly , even driving the four of us to the wedding on the Saturday as we weren't ' kitted out ' for walking.
They are both so friendly and the service they offer as well as the house is of a very high standard and quality. I would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the area, it is also a good area to be in for walking holidays.
