About the hotel
Visit Swallows Rest and discover Dorset, a county of outstanding natural beauty which boasts England’s World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast, with rolling hills, breath taking countryside, beautiful villages, and sandy and award winning beaches. We're on the South West Coastal Path National Trail with 630 miles of superb coastline, one of the top walks in the world. At the bottom of our land is the world famous Chesil Beach and the Fleet Saltwater Estuary which runs 10 miles along to Abbotsbury.
Our Bed & Breakfast rooms, decorated with an eclectic mix of furniture, are named after birds which frequent the Fleet Nature Reserve: Merganser, Redshank, Sandpiper & Little Tern. Our rooms cost from £75-£115 for double occupancy and from £50-£80 for single occupancy. We have a large luxury suite available for £180pn. We're happy to accommodate children over 8 yrs. Dorset chocolates and home made cakes, tea and coffee are served in the bedrooms on Royal Doulton and Wedgwood china collections. Rooms have sea views of the Fleet Saltwater Estuary and Chesil Beach across the fields where the horses, alpacas and sheep graze. Guests have access to the gardens, the summer house and fields with a footpath through our land leading down to the sea which is just 300 metres from the farm house. We use our chicken, bantam and duck eggs for breakfast, dry cured bacon and sausages from local butchers, and homemade cakes, granola, jams and marmalade are our speciality. We have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Archie. Our pet pigs George & Mildred wander freely in the gardens along with rare breed chicken, ducks and beautiful bantams. In the fields we have Wiltshire Longhorn sheep and horses, including Fudge a gorgeous blond Shetland pony, Charlie & Coco miniature Shetland ponies and Alpacas Kim, Barney & Angus

The house is situated in quite a built up area - the couple are very nice and the accommodation is nice but the situation is not isolated as we had hoped - it is on the edge of a housing development
the landscape at the seafront is dominated by MOD fencing and we didnt enjoy
Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry you didn't enjoy your overnight stay at the farm, the vast majority of our guests love it here thankfully! Our 35 acres of land leading down to Chesil Beach is home to our horses, alpacas and sheep and they have to be fenced in I'm afraid. The South West Coastal Path runs through our Nature Reserve and the thousands of walkers who visit need to feel safe and separate from our horses, some of whom are very large, but friendly and beautiful! The fence
is normal farm stock fencing and less than 4 foot high. If you'd had the time to stay longer I feel you would definitely have appreciated the amazing Jurassic Coastline and surrounding area.
