5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

Yvonne and Ray made us very welcome, the room was very clean and comfortable. View from juliet balcony was great looking out over the garden and the distant hills. Very quiet even with a twelve week old baby next door we only heard him once in the two days they were there. When on the first evening my husband hurt his knee and was unable put his weight on that leg Yvonne and Ray helped in any way possible even to taking all our luggage down to the car. We would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: South room gets the full afternoon Sun, lovely light and warm. Also shower in onsuite if you can...

Lovely room in a lovely house in a lovely village with its own romantic slighted ruin, whats not to like? Great breakfast, oh and did we mention great pubs! Warm attentive and friendly hosts with their finger on the local pulse. Handy base for lots of attractions. Like MacArthur, we will retun. We commend it to anyone.

It was our first visit to Corfe Castle and we weren't disappointed. It is a picturesque village with plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. We picked a really good B and B in Ammonite. There was a very friendly atmosphere and Yvonne made us feel at home. We shared the breakfast table with other guests and had good conversations over breakfast. The breakfasts were excellent and the rooms very comfortable. We would recommend this B and B to anyone.

We've been to Dorset many times and this was probably one of our best trips. A lovely B & B with a warm welcome from Yvonne, yummy breakfasts and everything we could need in our room. Beautiful coastal and country walks starting from Corfe, really good pubs for an evening meal, and plenty of choice for a cream tea, all within a few minutes walk from home.

Room Tip: We loved our room overlooking the garden with a view of the Purbeck Hills, very spacious and a table...

We loved this guest house and would love to return. Yvonne and family gave us a very warm welcome and looked after all our needs. Very clean and comfortable rooms, and excellent breakfasts. We loved meeting and conversing with new folk over breakfast around the well laden table. We would recommend this to anyone wanting peace and quiet, yet within easy reach of all the places of interest around the beautiful Isle of Purbeck.

We wanted to stay in a typical Dorset village. We did not want a chain hotel. We wanted to stay in a B/B
without feeling as though we were an intrusion in someone's home. We like a good breakfast that does not serve trays of help yourself stuff like tinned mushrooms. We like clean places that look well kept. We got all of this at the Ammonite. Yvonne was an excellent,friendly host who gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and impeccably clean with attention having been paid to every little detail. It could not be faulted. Breakfast was offered to our liking and was delicious,especially the home-made preserves! Location was great in an unspoilt village that could still offer meals in a range of pubs and shopping in some gift shops. Ideal centre for getting out for walks, sightseeing by car or riding on the steam train. Loved it all.

Room Tip: Choose the room with the Juliet balcony. The view is beautiful. Ask Yvonne for advice on where to go...
