Despite the last minute booking ( friday morning for the following day ) the owners of Swallows rest were luckily able to accommodate us for the Saturday evening.
We poped in early first thing to pay & then had the rest of the day to do our own thing.
Despite our early arrival we recieved a very warm & friendly welcome & were even offered a pitch with stunning views of Portland. Very nice thank you for that !!!

The camp site has a friendly feel to it with stunning views out to sea ( great sunsets too weather permitting )

The toilets were clean & the showers ( also clean ) hot with plenty of room to get changed etc.

I get the impresion that the owners genuinely care if there customers have a nice stay & are happy with things or not.

We come to this area often to kitesurf in Portland harbour & will definitely stay again

my husband has just returned from one nights stay at this B & B . Dont be put off by driving through the housing estate to get to property because once you arrive the views and surroundings are beautiful. The room was double ensuite very clean modern and well proportioned. The bed was comfortable welcomed with the offer of tea coffee and homemade cake. Guests lounge with large 3d tv if you wished to use. Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection of choice. My husband was given 3 sausages two rashers of bacon the choice of freshly laid duck or chicken egg two off these and beans .He didnt need to eat all day !!!

My husband and I stayed at Swallows Rest with our dog. We received a very warm welcome and even our dog soon felt relaxed (not always the case when she is somewhere new). The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and thoughtfully furnished. The garden was colourful and interesting despite the rather disappointing weather and we enjoyed meeting the pigs, ducks and chickens. The breakfast was delicious, as are Jane's home-made cakes.
The nearby beach is only a few minutes away, and Weymouth town centre and Portland Bill are both within easy reach. We would thoroughly recommend Swallows Rest, and hope to return there ourselves.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a nice view

My Partner and I have travelled to South England the very first time. We were so much impressed of the beautiful landscapes all over. Jane's warm welcoming made us feel like coming home and we were so happy to spend the whole evening at their place all by ourselves. The room was well equipped, spotlessly clean and decorated with lots of lovely details. Homemade sweets, cake and tea were in our room by arrival. Not to forget the fantastic breakfast with the best scrambled eggs ever we had during our whole England trip. Thanks a lot to Jane and Keith with their big animal family, especially George the pig.... or was it a dog??? Next time we stop at this georgious B & B, we hope to spend more than just one night.

I wanted a refresher course in painting to get me started again after some years of inactivity but I also wanted a weekend away in some lovely scenery. Swallow's Rest Art weekend certainly combined a high standard of art tutoring by Maria with good facilities for painting in the grounds and beautiful scenery all around Chesil Beach and Portland.The owners Jane and Keith couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.This was a full board weekend and the meals and accommodation were excellent, with lots of coffee/ tea and other treats to keep you going. I would thoroughly recommend Swallow's Rest to anyone who wants a homely and welcoming place to stay combined with a focus on developing painting and drawing skills with an experienced tutor.

My boyfriend planned a surprise birthday weekend for me at Swallows rest and we had a lovely time. Jane was incredibly welcoming and friendly (not to mention the brilliant breakfast.) The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and the views across to the sea were gorgeous. George the pig was possibly my favorite bit (he thinks he's a dog!) All round a lovely homely place to while away a weekend.

we stayed for a week at Easter 2012. The cottage was well equipped and furnished to a good standard, but we found a combination of noise next door from the downstairs bedroom and very noisy plumbing/heating upstars made this less relaxing than we exepected. One of our party stayed in the B & B ,and thoroughly enjoyed it.
