I stayed here for a weekend with a friend. It is simply one of the most beautiful buildings in Dorset, in a lovely setting. The owner is completely charming, the place was immaculate, breakfast stylish and delicious. I'll stay here again without a doubt. We also happened to be there for a Murder Mystery evening which was amazing.

This is B&B at its absolute best. Comfy beds, the most delicious breakfasts, a manor full of character where guests have their own wing. This area of Dorset is stunning, and the sea is just over the brow of the hill. Ashley provides a very warm welcome. 10/10 - highly recommended!

Stayed for two nights in this splendid Sawdays manor house B&B tucked away in a beautiful rural retreat, far from any crowds, madding or otherwise. Ashley embodies a certain type of eccentric English gentleman, and positively enhanced the stay with his humour and wonderful stories - he cooks a mean breakfast, too! He's very relaxed and accommodating, and makes one... More

A wonderful place in a wonderful place. We stayed in the splendid Balcony Room and Ashley proved to be the perfect host. We had the best breakfast ever and then walked it off by exploring the Iron Age fort on Eggardon Hill - an absolute must for any visitor!

We stayed at the West Compton Manor Bed and Breakfast for two nights. What a delight!!! This lovely B&B is nestled in a beautiful part of the countryside of England south west of London.

Stayed here via sawdays two weekends ago for two nights. Beautiful house, in an excellent location, a short scenic drive through rolling landscapes from the better scenes of the Jurassic coast, and returning after a day trip to total tranquillity and charm of the house. And then that breakfast, Ashley the owner asked us in advance what we liked, and... More

We needed somewhere to stay to recover after Camp Bestival. I found this place on Sawday and it looked nice. This is not a little B&B! It is a manor house, with a host who is a real character, who can also cook. (He also makes a mean gin and tonic.) Our daughter likes fossil hunting so we wanted to... More

I came across West Compton Manor via the Wild Garlic Restaurant website (which we couldn't get to in the end as it was closed!) and so pleased we decided to stay there - we had a great couple of last minute nights' away just before the Jubilee Weekend. It's a really elegant manor house that still manages to feel homely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful stone manor house situated on a small private estate, in an area of designated outstanding natural beauty, only minute away from the World Heritage Site of Dorset's Jurassic coast. Each room is stylishly with it’s own character and has a view onto the gardens or stunning architecturally interesting courtyard. There are several choices for breakfast, including Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon scrambled eggs and of course a full English breakfast, all made from locally sourced free range produce. The eggs are laid on site by “the girls” and where possible everything is home made including the bread. Breakfast can be taken in the Dining Room or on the patio overlooking the stunning countryside and in the evening drinks can be had relaxing by the koi ponds in the courtyard. Children and four legged members of the family are welcome. ... more   less
