Fantastic location, host, best breakfast ever and most importantly, you can hang around with farm animals all day! Highly recommended
Lovely place, just over half an hour's walk (10 min drive) from Weymouth, and an easy walk to Chesil Beach. We had a small but pleasant room (Little Tern), which was well equipped with tea/coffee making etc and there were cakes waiting for us each day! Brekkie was great - lots of choice and everything cooked and presented beautifully. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. Great place to stay in Weymouth.
Swallows Rest is just wonderful. We have only stayed for one night but the wonderful decorated house , the very nice hosts and the beautiful garden made it a memorable stay on our south England your.
We found this to be a very memorable stay at Weymouth. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly, the accomodation was perfect for our needs, and Jane seems to have thought of every way which she can make her guests stay a bit more pleasant and memorable, from fresh flowers to a tasty tea cake to greet our arrival.
Best B and B we have stayed at. Thanks.

Swallows Rest B&B was brilliant. Happiest chickens and pet pigs I've ever seen! The rooms were really comfortable and breakfast was huge and tasty. Definitely recommend.
Jane and Keith were great hosts. When we arrived, Jane made us very welcome with some afternoon tea, which was a very nice gesture.. Swallows Rest is a lovely farm, right on the edge of town, very quiet and with some wonderful views to Fleet Reserve and the sea beyond. Our room was lovely; and the breakfast delicious, with some of Jane's wonderful home made jams. Thank you Jane and Keith for a lovely stay.
