Shirley was a good host keeping us updated on the closed walking along the coast. Lovely and peaceful room. So clean. Lovely breakfast and I was impressed with Shirley's gluten free awareness. Superb location for the cove and good pubs in walking distance

Lovely B&B on the Main Road! We arrived after a nine hour hike at sunset and Shirley was so lovely and welcoming. The room was great, everywhere was very clean and the breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend!

We are Dorset 'locals', who wanted a night away from the kids for our wedding anniversary. This is a lovely, quiet, friendly B&B. Very comfy room, close to pubs...etc and beautiful Dorset scenery and walks. Breakfast was delicious. Perfect stay.

We only stayed the one night, but had we had time enough we'd have happily stayed longer. Shirley was very welcoming and prepared an excellent breakfast that would set up the most gluttonous walker for the day. Room very clean and cosy and house very conveniently located.

Just spent three nights in this fab b&b. The whole place (not just our room) smells fresh and clean. Bed was comfortable. The room was tidied up and cleaned everytime we come back from a day's activity so it was super relaxing to get back to. Shirley was ever so lovely. i loooved the home made freshly baked croissant included...

My partner and I stayed at the downalong b&b for 3 nights in August. We had a lovely stay. Clean room and bathroom. The best English breakfast we've had! Shirley was so kind and helpful. We will definitely be returning when we visit lulworth again.

A really comfortable double room with adjoining shower room. Everywhere was immaculately clean. Bed was very comfortable. Room was well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. Also there were biscuits and chocs in the room - a lovely touch. Excellent cooked breakfast - vegetarian friendly. I highly recommend this B&B.

The accommodation was truly impeccable...it was an absolute pleasure to come back from a day's trip and relax here. Shirley made sure we always had everything we needed (including one of the best English breakfasts we've ever had!!!) She was welcoming and friendly and really made our stay in Dorset unforgettable.

Me and my mum stayed at this lovely B&B for a few days. Shirley made us feel very welcome, she is the perfect host. We stayed in the twin bedroom and had the ground floor area to ourselves. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. Breakfast was very nice too. The B&B is very close to Lulworth...
