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

We (small family) have just recently returned from having spent a memorable couple of days in Lulworth (now our absolute favourite UK destination : ) Downalong is in an ideal location if you are looking to explore Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and surrounding areas. It's a pleasant 10/15 min walk from Downalong to the cove through the very pretty and... 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

We stayed here while walking the South West Coast Path. Just a very short walk from the coast - but far enough to leave the crowds at the visitor centre far behind. Very nice room - only a few moments walk to The Castle Inn for an evening meal - and a good breakfast the following morning.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The room was a good size and very clean. Loved all the little tea and coffee bits that came with the room. Breakfast was amazing, well needed for our day of walking. Would def reccommend.
