We have came here on a last minute and it turned out to be more amazing than planned. The Self Catering house it was just perfect, clean, spacious and i really felt like home. The owners are amazing too and very helpful with everything. I will definitely return here especially with the little one so she can see and play with the animals. I think so far this year is the best thing i have spent money on. Incredible

Such a gem here, Jane is the most polite and caring host, we were immediately put at ease, and felt spoilt from the start.
Keen to ensure our stay was 100% both Kieth and Jane were able to offer tips and advice as to where to eat, what to visit and so on.
The house and gardens are a delight, lovely and cosy room, well appointed and nothing was missing.
Breakfast was great also.
We will definitely be returning to Weymouth, and when we do, we have one B&B on the list!

Our room had a lovely view across to Chesil Beach, was very comfortable and well provisioned - even a bottle opener was provided. The daily pieces of homemade cake were an extra treat. The breakfast was excellent and the homemade marmalade was among the best I've ever tasted. The garden was a delight with all the special breed chickens. Jane and Keith are very welcoming hosts. We certainly intend to go back.

We enjoyed having you stay here at Swallows Rest and thanks for that great review! We're just off buying more ducks so there will be even more to watch during breakfast time. Best wishes Jane

I actually couldn't fault this lovely B&B and it was exactly as advertised which is rare these days. First of all our hosts Jane and Keith made us feel right at home and offered us tea and cake on arrival, the cake was home made and terrific. They gave us tips on walking and we even scouted out camping for the summer as they also have a great camping and caravanning area.. The grounds are lovely with views of Chesil beach and the sea, there is even a path from the B&B leading down to the beach and the Fleet. Our room was really beautifully decorated along with the rest of the house and our bathroom was spotless. Visitors also had full use of the dining and lounge areas providing views and access into the garden. It was wonderful to wake up and see all the chickens wandering round waiting for breakfast. I loved the fact that so many wild birds adorned the garden and in our bedroom binoculars were provided so we could even watch them from our room. Breakfast was delicious and of the highest standard I've experienced using B&Bs. We honestly couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and cannot wait to have a little camping trip come summer. If you are looking for somewhere with great views,nice grounds, lovely decor, home made cake and friendly hosts then this is definitely the place for you. Thank you Jane and Keith for a truly wonderful stay, we will be back.

What a lovely stay in a beautiful room, with a stunning view looking out to the sea and Portland. The breakfast was really nice and the hosts were very welcoming. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning.
