A really comfortable double room with adjoining shower room. Everywhere was immaculately clean. Bed was very comfortable. Room was well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. Also there were biscuits and chocs in the room - a lovely touch. Excellent cooked breakfast - vegetarian friendly. I highly recommend this B&B.

The accommodation was truly impeccable...it was an absolute pleasure to come back from a day's trip and relax here. Shirley made sure we always had everything we needed (including one of the best English breakfasts we've ever had!!!) She was welcoming and friendly and really made our stay in Dorset unforgettable.

Me and my mum stayed at this lovely B&B for a few days. Shirley made us feel very welcome, she is the perfect host. We stayed in the twin bedroom and had the ground floor area to ourselves. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. Breakfast was very nice too. The B&B is very close to Lulworth... More

There is nothing bad to say about this b&b. It's very personal and welcoming The location is fantastic and the breakfast was good and plentiful. Shirley is wonderful and we would recommend down-along to any of our friends and family. The free Wi-Fi is a bonus and condements in the room were great.

Best continental breakfast I've ever had, which, coupled with the excellent rooms and charming location made the stay thoroughly enjoyable. Ideal base to explore the beautiful Dorset coastline and it's surrounding attractions.

This is a lovely b&b and we were made to feel very welcome by Shirley. The room was spotless and bed extremely comfortable. Wonderful breakfast too. I would recommend this place to anyone and it's only a 2 min walk to The Castle Inn too.

We had a perfact stay here! It was a 5 minute drive to Durdle door and Shirley was very friendly. The rooms are very clean. Having the bedroom and our own bathroom downstairs meant we could come and go without disturbing the owners. Breakfast was very nice!

We spent a lovely 4 nights at Downalong, where we were made to feel welcome and at home straightaway. Having the bedroom and our own bathroom downstairs meant we could come and go without disturbing the owners. Breakfast was amazing and our changeable tastes through the week were catered for excellently. The location is great for walking the coast path... More

Prompt emails on booking. Really nice welcome. We had both rooms - double for us and twin for kids. The rooms and dedicated bathroom form the bottom part of a house with the owners inhabiting the first floor. All spotless and the free wifi was easy to use. The beach is a 17 minute walk down the road but note... More
