Comfortable, clean, and a 5-minute walk to town. Yvonne is a warm, welcoming host who is thoroughly knowledgable about this area of Dorset. Group breakfasts were enjoyable. Beautiful garden in back. We have spent about 50 nights in the UK and Ammonite B&B is in our top 3 or 4 places to stay. Highly recommended.
