Overview

Property

Updated: 26-Oct-2016
Bed & Breakfast and Self Catering plus small Campsite in Wyke Regis, Weymouth, Dorset - Swallows Rest Is Located At The Heart Of The Jurassic Coastline In Wyke Regis Near Weymouth, Dorset

This farmhouse rural retreat is a must for anyone wanting to get away from it all and relax by the sea, in our summer house, or to walk for miles along the Jurassic Coastal Path. The dramatic coastline of the “Isle” of Portland is home to some spectacular and unique wildlife, flora and fauna, whilst the Georgian seaside resort of Weymouth offers a bustling town and harbour. Weymouth & Portland are not only at the heart of the world Heritage Coast but also the venues for the sailing events of the 2012 Olympics. Whether you're looking for a stroll on the promenade, long sandy beaches, an historic harbour side or panoramic sea and landscapes, this is the area to visit, draw, paint or sketch. We cater for small Bridge Club Holidays and can accommodate 4/5 tables. Guests have access to the large garden, summer house, lake and field leading down to the sea. Our B&B guests are served free range eggs from our chicken, beautiful bantams and ducks roaming the gardens. Self-catering available. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL3z68Ap7mY

About the Owner

After living in Estepona and holidaying there for the past 30 years I never fail to enjoy the Spanish way of life. Now living in Dorset with a Farmhouse B&B, 4 self-catering apartments, a small campsite, pet pigs, alpacas, miniature Shetland ponies and loads of other pets to look after it's difficult to get away. All properties have spectacular sea views - come and visit.

Perfect for a break in Weymouth

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location, ideal for beach and surrounding area. Plenty of open space for children and easy access to the beach. Our Grandson loves seeing all the animals including George and Mildred the pigs! A short drive from Weymouth, but walkable too. Jane and Keith are very welcoming hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Bungalow is well equipped, comfortable and spacious for 4 people. Washing machine, dishwasher and wifi included. Parking right outside the door. Our second visit and we've booked for next year! We love it! Just the job!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation very comfortable, views excellent. Hosts very friendly. Loved having the animals nearby and it was great to be able to walk straight out onto the footpath and along the coastal path. Lots to see and do in the area. Visited nearby Weymouth, Also drove to Swanage, taking in Corfe Castle on the way. Another day drove to Lyme Regis, enjoying coastal views on the way there.
