A warm welcome at the door was the start of too short a stay with Yvonne and Ray Hendes of Ammonite, Corfe Castle. We stayed in the South room which has a wonderful view of the garden which will be stunning in the summer and from another window could see Corfe Castle itself through the trees. The room was a good size, tastefully decorated in lilac themes and very clean and comfortable. It was a bitterly cold weekend so we were grateful for such a cosy room.
Breakfast was a communal affair around a big table in Yvonne's spacious open kitchen. Help yourself to juice and cereal and then Yvonne cooks a wonderful full English on the Aga with freshly made toast on the side. We certainly didn't go hungry.
As an example of our host's thoughtful service, we mentioned over breakfast that we'd brought a nice bottle of wine to have for our wedding anniversary but forgotten to bring a corkscrew. When we got back to our room that night Yvonne had thoughtfully left a corkscrew in our room. A little touch but it made us feel that she cared about her guests and it was a little icing on the cake.
