Just what we needed for a one night stay in Swanage. Warm welcome and a great breakfast cooked and served in the kitchen by our host with a couple of other interesting guests - made the real 'homely' difference between a B+B and a hotel. It's not trying to be anything more than what it is, very genuine.

The B&B is located about 0.5 mile (10 minute walk) from the lovely sandy beach and town centre. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The full english breakfasts were lovely and really set us up for the day. We did a lot of cycling during our 3 day (2 night) break, and the hosts loaned us an OS map...
