Spent three night at this very good B&B with friend. Good value for money. Breakfast was good and rooms visited out to a good standard. Long time since I've done at B&B and was impressed. Worth a return visit.

For my annual visit to lovely Swanage I use Caythorpe House as I know the place and owner, Alan, will give me great and friendly stay. Each year the owner has been developing the place into a tranquil, modern decorated/furnished property that is very comfortable and have to say, Alan makes for such a friendly stay. Nothing is too much...

I was looking for a single room for my first visit to Dorset for the Swanage Walking festival and found Caythorpe House online. On arrival I could see what a great location it's in - very close to the bus station, High St and seafront but in a quiet street. Alan, the proprietor, was extremely helpful. He arranged an early...

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of September. Alan was extremely helpful in allowing us to check in early (we had a course which started at 2.00pm) and letting us leave the car on site until well after check out on the last day. My room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts very good. Fantastic location too....

The perfect place to stay in Swanage. Caythorpe is excellently located very close to the beach and steam railway. The House is extremely well kept, our room was spacious and very clean. The owner Alan works very hard to ensure that his guests have an excellent stay. We were greeted with a warm welcome and enjoyed spending the first 1/2hr...
