This was our first stay at Ammonite B&B and it will definitely not be our last. Perfect location away from the hubbub of the centre of Corfe Castle but close enough to be able to walk into the village to explore the shops & pubs or to walk out into the stunning countryside. Yvonne gave us a very warm welcome...

To say that this was my sixth holiday at Mr and Mrs Hendes' Ammonite (formerly "Westerway") says all about my entire delight and satisfaction during each and every visit. Every aspect of the experience is excellent, from the warm welcome, the clean and comfortable accommodation to the wide choice and high standard of breakfast provided by Mrs Hendes. Mrs Hendes...

What a wonderful place to stay! We enjoyed Ammonite very much. It is well located on scenic West Street within a short walk into the centre of the village. It also has good and safe parking. In fact, we could not think of a better location to stay in Corfe Castle. The B&B itself is very comfortable and the breakfast...

My four-night stay was most enjoyable. I walked in Purbeck during the day (using the train to return from Swanage on one day) and ate well in the village pubs each evening. Yvonne's warm and genuine welcome made me feel very much at home. My twin room wasn't huge but had all I needed and the private bathroom, across the...

I stayed at Ammonite for 4 nights whilst walking in the local area and had a very enjoyable stay.
