Great accommodation and food at reasonable prices. Friendly helpful staff and a good walk to Charmouth (about an 1 1/4 hours) . Not great access by public transport. Log fires and games to play in the common rooms.

About
Description
Monkton Wyld Court has a long history of offering eco-friendly organic B&B hospitality, with all proceeds going towards the upkeep of our beautiful Victorian-Gothic Grade II Listed manor house and the More Trust’s charitable activities. The B&B is run by a small community of friendly volunteers; guests are welcome to enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the spacious house and grounds in privacy, but those interested in the centre can always find people willing to share their experiences of low-impact living. Breakfast is self-serve and includes milk and yoghurt from our Jersey cows, eggs from our free-range chickens, as well as home-made jams and local honey. Lunch and dinner – all vegetarian and organic, with many ingredients grown in our Victorian walled garden – need to be booked in advance. We ask that all our guests wash their own dishes after meals, and strip their beds before leaving, in line with our communitarian ethos. We don’t have any television in the house and only limited wifi, but can provide you with plenty of board games and books, and maps for walks across the lush Dorset hills and down to the Jurassic Coast. The historic market towns of Bridport and Axminster are also just a short drive away. Less
