A wonderful find - just minutes walk away from Corfe Castle. No need to take the car, with plenty to see within easy walking distance. Yvonne gave us a lovely welcome. We stayed in the ensuite double room with spa bath. The room was homely, spotless and very comfortable. The breakfasts were leisurely and filling. Plenty of opportunity to chat to other guests. We met some lovely people during our stay.

want a great day out? Book two nights at 'Ammonite' and walk the 4 or so miles into Swanage on the 'Purbeck Way' - retuning by steam train on the Swanage Railway.
What a great day out! The views are magnificent and Swanage is a lovely little resort. If walking is not your scene then buy a return ticket on the railway. Yvonne your host will tell you all you need to know whilst you eat her delicious breakfast.

Room Tip: The 'South Room' is a gem.

I had business in Swanage on Thursday morning and so we decided at the last moment to take the opportunity of a day's break in a delightful area by travelling down the day before. As it was such short notice, Yvonne kindly took our single night's booking, which, understandably, she does not normally do.

Lucky us! We were warmly welcomed by the friendly owner and and our upstairs room was gorgeous: light and bright with full-length windows over-looking the pretty garden. We were able to leave our bags mid-morning and got great advice on a good plan for the day combined with the loan of a large-scale map for walking.

We stayed for 3 nights in a beautiful room over looking a magical garden and open country side beyond. The facilities are excellent, good beds, large room and big TV that works! Breakfast was also very good, local produce and all cooked fresh which is something you don't get in hotels. Good place for walking and touring. We would certainly return to this very friendly guest house.

This accomodation provided everything we needed to have a very enjoyable and relaxing short break. Yvonne provides an excellent breakfast and the house is located just a short stroll away from all the village facilities. (We can certainly recommend evening meals at the Castle Inn)

Stayed 3 nights, we had garden room, my parents had room with spa bath. View from our room over garden beautiful. Both rooms very clean with lovely decor and furnishings. Yvonne was a very friendly and helpful host, nothing too much trouble. Breakfasts were good with great chunky toast and home made jams. Really quiet location, but close to everything. Very good restaurants close by.
