My boyfriend and I booked to stay here over the Easter bank holiday. It's a very impressive building and the rooms were beautiful and comfortable (the deep bath was a favourite of mine!). The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was absolutely delicious - so much so that we bought the sausages from the same butcher to take home...

A wonderful host who ensures that you will have a truly memorable stay. Our rooms were delightful, very clean and the beds so comfortable. Amazingly peaceful and quiet. Ashley's breakfasts are legendary using both home grown and locally sourced produce. Bloody Mary's are on tap should you be in need of one! Which after an amazing evening spent with the...

I stayed last weekend, it was meant to be with my partner but kids' stuff queered our plans. The house is beautiful and so is the surrounding area. Ashley is a superb host, the dogs (Skinny & Tipple) are lovely. The Balcony Room is very luxurious, the bed is super comfortable and enormous. Ashley does the best breakfast spread. I'd...

From being handed a glass of the most powerfull gin and tonic upon arrival through to attempting to give justice to the astonishing home cooked "full English" breakfast the entire stay at West Compton was a delight. Ashley is more than slightly bonkers, but that simply adds to the charm and attraction, and there is always a friendly dog at...

This January was my third stay at the Manor after my first stay with my father in the summer of '16. Because I liked it very much, I decided to return this January with my girlfriend. In an amazing scene of SW English hills, this manor is located in the valley of West Compton. As idyllic as its location is,...

Without question this is a proper English gem, a stunning house in fantastic rolling countryside. A host who is a proper English gentleman who knows how to make a guest feel very welcome. From the Bloody mary to the breakfast everything is epic in size and quality. The local pubs are fantastic for dinner and Ashley will make great suggestions...

I stayed here for a weekend with a friend. It is simply one of the most beautiful buildings in Dorset, in a lovely setting. The owner is completely charming, the place was immaculate, breakfast stylish and delicious. I'll stay here again without a doubt. We also happened to be there for a Murder Mystery evening which was amazing.

This is B&B at its absolute best. Comfy beds, the most delicious breakfasts, a manor full of character where guests have their own wing. This area of Dorset is stunning, and the sea is just over the brow of the hill. Ashley provides a very warm welcome. 10/10 - highly recommended!

Stayed for two nights in this splendid Sawdays manor house B&B tucked away in a beautiful rural retreat, far from any crowds, madding or otherwise. Ashley embodies a certain type of eccentric English gentleman, and positively enhanced the stay with his humour and wonderful stories - he cooks a mean breakfast, too! He's very relaxed and accommodating, and makes one...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful stone manor house situated on a small private estate, in an area of designated outstanding natural beauty, only minute away from the World Heritage Site of Dorset's Jurassic coast. Each room is stylishly with it’s own character and has a view onto the gardens or stunning architecturally interesting courtyard. There are several choices for breakfast, including Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon scrambled eggs and of course a full English breakfast, all made from locally sourced free range produce. The eggs are laid on site by “the girls” and where possible everything is home made including the bread. Breakfast can be taken in the Dining Room or on the patio overlooking the stunning countryside and in the evening drinks can be had relaxing by the koi ponds in the courtyard. Children and four legged members of the family are welcome. ... more   less
