We chose Swallows Rest again for our annual Halloween bridge weekend because the hosts Jane and Keith are so friendly, helpful and go that extra mile to make you feel so welcome and at home. The food is delicious, locally sourced with fresh eggs from the resident chickens and ducks. The Accommodations are perfect, very pretty with all mod cons... More

This has to be one of the best B&B's we have stayed in with the little touches making it extra special - from the cakes and chocolates in the room to being able to pick exactly what to have for breakfast. We were staying in the only room which didn't have an ensuite but our private bathroom was only across... More

Fantastic bed and breakfast, friendly owners and made to feel really welcome. Given a pot of tea and cakes on arrival. Great location as nice and quiet and relaxed, plenty of opportunities for local walks. Room very comfy and clean. Loved the animals running around outside, ideal for families especially if the children love animals.

We throughly enjoyed a 2 night stay. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was a delight; clean, comfortable complete with welcoming cakes. Breakfast was available up to 10am, no early morning dash. The food was first class with a wide choice served in the breakfast room leading onto the garden complete with bantams and two pot bellied... More

I have stayed at Swallows Rest twice now and both times have been equally as great. It is in a gorgeous setting and shows off some of the best views on the Jurassic Coast. Keith and Jane are so friendly and will do anything and everything to look after you. There is plenty to do in the area, with Weymouth... More

Swallows Rest is as comfortable and homely as it is stylish and elegant. The best view in Dorset is uninterrupted from this smallholding where the pot bellied pigs snuzzle among the gorgeous gardens alongside fluffy footed bantams and friendly ducks. Quiet horses graze by the sea and the free range eggs, homemade jam, locally made shortbread and outstanding breakfasts and... More

Went to a wedding party at the above beautiful location overlooking the Fleet Lagoon and the world-famous Chesil Beach twixt Weymouth and Portland. I cannot speak too highly of the Hosts, Keith and Jane and their 4-star "AA" rated B/B outshines any 5-star hotel. Their surrounding garden and fields is an educational plus for families with their children, wide-eyed, at... More

We felt very welcome over the four days we stayed. The breakfast was wonderful. And the location is great for walking. A plus point is the choice and variety of places to eat in the evening, all within walking distance.The owners were also very helpful and had books and maps of the local area to borrow.
