Wonderful site ideally located close to the town. Fantastic facilities with shower and toilet blocks. The scenery from the campsite was breathtaking. We will be returning on our next trip to Weymouth. No need to book in the winter either you can just turn up

We felt very comfortable during our stay at the swallows rest. Very friendly people with big sense for a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast was extensive and served pleasently. Several animals are living in the garden.

From the moment we walked through the door, we had such a lovely welcome and felt at home. We had the family room which had more than one view and offered everything you needed. It was very clean, very cosy and hard to leave. We were welcomed with afternoon tea and cake, what a character place. Jane made us cake...

Well what a fabulous review! We're over the moon with that. We really do try to give our guests a memorable stay with us and we find the longer guests are here the better time they have. Our new luxury family room is a great success, especially the view of the sea and the alpacas from the huge bed. If...

The approach to the Swallows Rest B&B took us by surprise as it led us through a, not great, housing estate. However on reaching our destination the welcome was very warm, lovely surroundings and beautiful garden with a variety of chickens, ducks and more. A gem tucked away. Lovely room, not huge but everything we needed and more. View of...

We had a lovely weekend at Swallow's Rest, away from busy London. The B&B is situated along the Dorset Coast Path and we walked all the way there from Weymouth Station. It was gorgeous. The farmhouse is brilliant - lovely animals everywhere in the gardens and fields surrounding the house. We received a very warm welcome and spent a few...

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The walk along the Rodwell Trail and the South West Coastal Path is stunning and takes less than an hour from Weymouth to the B&B. We're pleased to say that our new African Geese are settling in well in the garden. Best wishes Jane
