We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Rectory cottage to celebrate a special birthday. Our room had a balcony and ensuite and was very comfortable with small fridge. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Delicious breakfast. Stunning walks to Old Harry Rock and Swanage. Sandy beach within walking distance. Will definitely return!

Having read the previous reviews Rectory cottage had a lot to live up to, our stay did not disappoint. Rick and Bonny and wonderful hosts. The accommodation was first class and the breakfast lived up to the previous top notch reviews. Best of all we were made to feel like visiting family. Would certainly recommend!

Couldn't have asked for a better accomodation, or more friendly hosts for our niece's wedding. Thank you Rick and Bonny (not forgetting the wonderful Betty). Cathy and I would definitely like to come back some day soon.

Our yearly visit and we were not disappointed. Rick and Bonny are a lovely couple who make their guests very welcome. We always stay in the balcony room which is very relaxing. The breakfasts are excellent as is the accommodation.

This is a lovely clean guest house and the owners are so helpful and friendly. The breakfast is delicious and definitely sets you up for the day. It is in a quiet location yet near a pub which serves meals till late and also is in easy walking distance of the beach.
